SCSU Hockey Advances to NCAA Second Round
The St. Cloud State men's hockey team has advanced to the regional final of the NCAA tournament with a 6-2 first round win today over Boston University in Albany, New York.
After a scoreless first period, Boston University tallied the first goal of the game in the second period. Still in the second, the Huskies would take a 2-1 lead on goals from Micah Miller and Nick Perbix -- before Boston University would add a second goal to tie things up. With four minutes left in the second, St. Cloud State regained the lead on a goal by Easton Brodzinski, and that's there the period would end.
With the win, St. Cloud State (18-10-0) advances to the regional final against #1 Boston College (17-5-1) Sunday afternoon at 4:30 PM CT, with the winner advancing to the NCAA Frozen Four April 8th & 10th in Pittsburgh. The game can be heard in the St. Cloud area on 96.7 FM KZRV, with the pregame show starting at 4:00 PM.

St. Cloud State, UMD, and Bemidji State have all advanced to the respective regional finals, with Minnesota vs. Omaha, and Minnesota State vs. Quinnipiac scheduled for later tonight.
