Breaking Down The Unprecedented 2022 CCHA Championship Game
Mar 20, 2022CCHA Commissioner Don Lucia, a guy whose coaching career ended after missing the NCAA tournament by one ten-thousandth of a point back in 2018, was finally in a position of power to execute postseason justice, inside or outside of the rules. He chose the latter, but he got it right.
CCHA Championship Preview: Minnesota State Vs. Bemidji
Mar 15, 2022After a season of more lows than highs, a season in which coach Tom Serratore saw his Bemidji State Beavers allow more goals than they scored, the veteran coach was finally in a position to relax Saturday night in Houghton. Serratore was enjoying the CCHA’s equivalent of a fireside chat after upsetting No. 2 seed Michigan Tech. The veteran coach was now front and center in a league press conference—his team sitting in the catbird seat, guaranteed a berth in the CCHA championship game while his opponents were still playing a timezone away in Mankato. Entering the night sub-500 was now a distant memory. His Beavers were on the precipice of making the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row.

CCHA Playoffs Preview: No. 6 Bowling Green Vs. No. 3 Bemidji State
Mar 1, 2022Northern Michigan broadcaster Dave Danis is a traveling man. He has driven all the highways and byways of college and minor league hockey—he knows the truck stops and the long stretches without any. As the CCHA’s regular season was counting down to its completion Saturday night, Danis was the first to sort out the reshuffled deck of the CCHA standings from his broadcast position at the Berry Events Center. That’s when it struck him that Bowling Green, ensconced in a home ice position all season long, had just fallen to sixth place, which made them a road club in the quarterfinal round. They would be facing Bemidji, which got the veteran road warrior doing some mental math.
CCHA Playoffs Preview: No. 5 Northern Michigan Vs. No. 4 Lake State
Mar 1, 2022In addition to the obvious competitiveness of a No. 4-No. 5 matchup, the fact that this series is a rematch of last year’s conference championship game makes for appointment viewing this weekend. The fact that these two teams were involved in a three-team race for the last home-ice berth—a pennant race that took until third period of the regular season finale—adds even more drama to a matchup that already has plenty.
