For all the marbles 

In NCAA hockey action last night, the University of Maine Black Bears beat Boston College 2-1, despite long stretches of sloppy play. They will face the University of Denver Pioneers for the Frozen Four championship on Saturday at 7 pm eastern at the FleetCenter in Boston. Live broadcast on ESPN.

It should be one hell of a game, as Maine goes for its third national championship, and the Black Bears' sophomore goalie Jimmy Howard, a second round draft pick of the Detriot Red Wings, looks to seal up NCAA records for goals against average and save percentage in a season.


UPDATE: Well, so much for that. Unlike a couple of their other NCAA tournament games, Maine actually lost when they deserved to lose this time. But my quick math shows Jimmy Howard setting NCAA single-season records for goals against average (1.19) and save percentage (.956). At least there's that.
