ECAC Playoffs

Here's a breakdown of what happened in the other 3 games in the league last night.

#5 SLU 3 - #12 Brown 2 (OT) - Brown took a 2-0 lead on SLU at the midway point of the game. SLU came back and tied it up on a Jared Ross powerplay goal to force overtime. SLU took advantage of an icing call on Brown and the senior leadership stepped up to win it just 25 seconds into the 4th period as Mike Zbriger got the game winner. Brown goaltender Adam D'Alba made 51 saves in the loss.

#11 Yale 2 - #6 Union 1 (OT) - In a game which featured 43 penalty minutes Yale's Matt Cohen got the game winner at the 9:21 mark of overtime to give Yale a 1-0 lead in the series. Union's playoff woes continued as they played their fourth consecutive overtime playoff game. Yale took 12 penalties including Jean-Francois Boucher's 5 minute kneeing penalty but Union could only cash in one time on the man up with a Torren Delforte goal to tie things up in the second.

#10 Quinnipiac 2 - #7 RPI 1 - Quinnipiac earned the other upset of the night by outworking RPI for a 2-1 win in Troy. The Bobcats scored 2 goals in the first five minutes and that would be all they would need as Bud Fisher made 28 saves to earn the Bobcats their first ECACHL post season win. Jamie Bates got his 19th and David Marshall tallied his 22nd goal on a powerplay in what was the eventual game winner. Oren Eizenman netted his 15th goal of the season to cut the lead in half early in the 3rd but that's all the Engineers could muster.

If all series end tonight the second round will look like this:

#11 Yale at #1 Dartmouth
#10 Quinnipiac at #2 Colgate
#8 Clarkson at #3 Cornell
#5 SLU at #4 Harvard
