Hockey NCAA bid possibilities

Dartmouth is fighting Colgate and Vermont for the final at-large bid to the NCAA hockey tournament. It should be noted that all three teams are in the ECAC, and whoever gets it will give the league three bids (along with Cornell and Harvard) for the first time in years.

Here’s how it appears to shake out with one day left on the season.

Colgate gets the bid with:
a win or tie (vs. Vermont in ECAC consolation game)

UVM gets the bid with:
a win (vs. Colgate) AND a Quinnipiac win (in the Atlantic Hockey championship) win AND an Alaska-Fairbanks win (in the CCHA consolation game).

Dartmouth gets the bid with:
a Vermont win AND a Mercyhurst win (in the Atlantic Hockey championship),
a Vermont win AND a Michigan St. win or tie (in the CCHA Consolation game).
