For the second straight year the U.M.D. Bulldogs will take on the overall number one in the land for a chance to go to the frozen four. Last the dogs took on Yale in the regional championship game in route to the national championship. This year the dogs will have to beat a very good Boston College team. The Eagles have not lost sense January and have won 16 straight games, 15 of those games they have allowed 2 or few goals.
BC has a very solid defensive team but they don't score a lot. The bulldogs are on again off again at defense but score a lot of points. The bulldogs will need to have a top notch defense tonight and match the intensity of BC.
The dogs will need to play an entire 60 minutes something they have not seemed to be doing as of late. The dogs where number 1 in country for a lot of the season, that said after the Christmas break the dogs have been spotty with there play. Well the Eagles have been on top of there game.
The two teams earned this match up, by winning there first round matches. BC took out Air Force by a 2-0 score only having 20 shots on net. The Bulldogs beat Maine 5-2 but trailed 1-0 after one and where down 2-0 about mid way in to the 2nd. The dogs then got there feet under them and lead after 2 by a 3-2 score and never looked back. The dogs however where out played for a total of 1 period, something they can't let happen tonight. If they do they will be going home. I look for U.M.D. to put there best foot forward and come out with a win but will be a close my guess is 3-2 U.M.D.
