2022 NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Championship – Harvard vs Minnesota State Preview

In the NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Championship, only 16 teams qualify, meaning that the distance to go to win a title is short. For the first round of the tournament, the teams are divided up into four four-team regional brackets that will ultimately decide the 2022 Frozen Four quarterfinal. The Minnesota State Mavericks have the top seed of the entire tournament, posting the season’s best record, while Harvard is the fourth seed in their region. Playing the first game of the championship playoff, the stage is set for a potential early upset.

Harvard hasn’t appeared in the NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey National Championship Game since winning it in 1989. To reach it again will require a bit of a miracle, but more than anything, a strong start on Thursday. They’re playing a Mavericks team that has battled through a tough regular-season schedule to reach this moment, pursuing the program’s first appearance in the title contest. Minnesota State scored 167 goals this season, the most of any school, averaging a second-best 4.17 goals per game. In six fewer contests, Harvard ranked 11th with 3.32 goals scored per game, for a total of 113. Simple math would tell you that Minnesota State has this wrapped up, but of course, miracles have been seen on ice before.

However the outcome of the first-round match-up between Minnesota State and Harvard plays out, they know their next contest will be on Saturday, March 26, 2022. The opponent in the next game will be the winner of Thursday night’s affair between Notre Dame and North Dakota.
