When it comes to post-season tournaments and
crowning conference champions, college hockey is
not much different than college basketball. Just as
league champions and NCAA tournament qualifiers
are being chosen in basketball arenas across the
country this weekend, hockey conferences like the
CCHA are holding their tournaments that not only
crown a champion, but result in an automatic bid to
next week's NCAA tournament.
In the CCHA, the field has narrowed to four teams
and those four will compete in the semifinal round of
the CCHA playoffs tonight at Joe Louis Arena in
Detroit with the two winners squaring off tomorrow
at 7 p.m. for all the marbles.
THE FIRST game today features a 4:00 p.m. star-
ting time and two schools that Michigan fans do not
generally take a liking to. Michigan State (28-10-0)has
defeated Ohio State (25-8-5) twice during the season
in East Lansing, but that was early in the season and
the Buckeyes have come on strong the second half,
finishing in a tie with the Spartans for second place.
"We haven't played Michigan State for a long time,
but I'm looking forward to playing them," said OSU
coach Jerry Welsh. "Its the only team that really did
a job on us. We played them in October after a couple
of games with a bunch of green people. But I can't
help but think we did much more improving than they
have over the course of the season."
Both these teams had struggles in their first round
games last weekend. The Spartans lost their opener
against Ferris State and on Saturday, the teams were
tied at 1-1 after two periods leaving FSC with a two
goal lead for the series. But goals by Dee Rizzo, Dale
Krentz and Mark Hamway put MSU ahead, and an
empty net goal sealed the victory.
IN COLUMBUS, the Bucks won their first game
easily but Miami put on quite a challenge the next
night closing OSU's margin to one goal before Paul
Pooley of Ohio State put it out of reach with a score
late in the game.
The second game tonight features regular season
and fourth-ranked Bowling Green (27-7-4) against the
only team to win on the road last week, Northern
Northern defeated Michigan Tech in Houghton as
they pulled out a victory with a goal at 14:11 of the
final period to break a tie. Bowling Green had no
problems with Notre Dame, winning 8-3 and 7-2.
"Our series with Northern Michigan in January
was probably one of the finest all season," said Falcon
coach Jerry York. "I was very impressed with their
quickness. I think we are now peaking after our little
slump a month ago."
"Bowling Green is great ... they're one of the best
teams in the country," said Wildcats' coach Rick
Comley. "But our goal all year long was to get down
to Joe Louis. We played them very tough up here, so
we're looking forward to a good game."
