At 6:30 tonight the UNH men's hockey team takes on Rochester Institute of Technology with the victor heading to the Frozen Four in Detroit. RIT upset Denver last night and UNH upset Cornell to advance to this Elite Eight matchup. Hobey Baker hopeful Bobby Butler scored two goals, one was an absolute snipe and the other a great break-away, and he also added an assist. Butler has carried UNH when they need him most and his 29 goals this season is the most in the country. Paul "I score chicks and goals" Thompson and Mike Sislo also had two goals each as Brian Foster played a solid game in net. Although RIT is a four seed and in their first NCAA Division 1 tournament ever they are a very solid team, especially on the defensive end. Be sure to watch the game (6:30 ESPNU) and we will celebrate in the streets tonight.
WMUR will have a camera crew on campus so be ready for anything. Seriously, when you're a top blogger like me there are some pretty powerful connections to be made. I actually got a call from a producer asking where I was watching the game. That being said, does anyone know if there will be a mass gathering to watch the game other than the bars? I know they played the Super Bowl in the MUB.
So be ready for a great game tonight and I'll see you all in the streets!
