In a battle of Oilers' Hockey East prospects, Kyle Bigos' Merrimack Warriors bested Robby Dee's Maine Black Bears 5-4. Dee did his part, scoring 2 goals and adding 1 assist. Bigos was a plus on the game and as is his custom took a 5 minute major for cross checking. Mike McMahon at Warrior Rink Rat has all of the coverage.
Michigan State and Maine were among the last teams to miss the tournament, so there will be no postseason for Jeff Petry or Robby Dee. Cornell's Riley Nash and North Dakota's Chris VandeVelde can meet, but only in the championship game.
