There are NCAA college hockey playoff games throughout the weekend, with several conferences holding their semifinals and finals (or Frozen Five in the WCHA's case) to help determine bids for the NCAA tournament. Consider this your open thread if you're watching or just dropping by to see any notes.
Among the games: Notre Dame plays Ohio State today in Detroit at 1:05 EDT. You might find it on your TV if you have a package with regional sports networks like Fox Sports Detroit. That game features Islanders draft picks Anders Lee and Robbie Russo. (If they lose, will it be Lee's last game...?)
Lee was named to the CCHA first team all-star team. He wears #9. Russo, a sophomore, wears #5.
