BTW, last I knew, Hockey East didn't need to send the two finalists to the Frozen Four. They send the winner and one other team that they select, with the theory being that there is no basis for saying that the team that the winner beat in the finals is necessarily better than the team they beat in the semis: they just beat them each on different nights.

A couple of decades or so ago, BU was the best team in the country but lost in the quarters to Providence. Providence pulled another upset in the semis before losing to BC in the finals. This put the selection committee in a hell of a spot, because you couldn't say that the loser of the finals hadn't proven itself to be better than BU, because it had, in fact, beaten them in that tournament, but they decided to have a playoff game between BU and Providence, which BU won, and BU went on to win the national title. I often wonder what the selection committee would have done if BU as the #8 seed had knocked off Providence as the #1 seed but eventually had lost to BC in the finals. I think they would have said, "Al right, BU! You've done it when it counted!" and sent them to the Frozen Four without a playoff game

With college hockey using the PWR system it makes it easier to avoid any tough decision. Vermont still has a chance.
