Yale rolls and some early bracketology

Wrapping things up from Atlantic City. Ryan Rondeau posts his third straight shutout, extending his school-record streak to 202:19 without allowing a goal, as Yale crushes Cornell 6-0 to win its second ECAC title in three years. Brian O'Neill, Andrew Miller, Chris Cahill and Jimmy Martin join tourney MVP Ryan Rondeau on the all-tournament team. Connor Goggin of Dartmouth is the only non-Yalie to make the team.

As of this entry, Denver and North Dakota are in overtime for the WCHA crown. So, I'll give my tournament bracket predictions for both scenarios.

If North Dakota wins...

East Regional (at Bridgeport): 1. Yale vs. 16. Air Force; 8. Union vs. 9. Minnesota-Duluth

Northeast Regional (at Manchester, N.H.): 4. Miami vs. 13. New Hampshire; 5. Michigan vs. 12. Nebraska-Omaha

Midwest Regional (at Green Bay, Wis.): 2. North Dakota vs. 15. RPI; 7. Denver vs. 11. Notre Dame

West Regional (at St. Louis): 3. Boston College vs. 14. Colorado College; 6. Merrimack vs. 10. Western Michigan

If Denver wins....

BRIDGEPORT: 1. Yale vs. 16. Air Force; 8. Union vs. 10. Western Michigan

MANCHESTER: 4. Miami vs. 13. New Hampshire; 6. Merrimack vs. 12. Nebraska-Omaha

GREEN BAY: 3. North Dakota vs. 15. RPI; 5. Denver vs. 11. Notre Dame

ST. LOUIS: 2. Boston College vs. 14. Colorado College; 7. Michigan vs. 9. Minnesota-Duluth

Great coverage all season, Chip. It will be good to avenge the first loss of the season in which the boys blew a 3-0 lead in the 3rd against Air Force in Colorado Springs, Malcolm in net during that debacle.
