More Ice Chips

Inside College Hockey has a nice writeup of Dartmouth in its weekly ECAC column here. US College Hockey Online’s own weekly ECAC column can be found here.

After last weekend’s action, Dartmouth found itself on the outside looking in for the NCAA men’s ice hockey tournament, at least according to the Pairwise Rankings, which mimics the actual selection process. After Michigan Tech tied Northern Michigan 3-3 tonight, however, Dartmouth would have found itself back in the tournament, were it to be picked tomorrow. Such is life on the NCAA bubble, where every game counts and a team is often affected more by the outcomes of other games than its own.
