EVIL MONKEYS DEMOLISH DINOS
CALGARY DINOS 1
ALBERTA GOLDEN BEARS 8

I saw some of this on-line while watching the Leafs take another step towards the Stanley Cup on TV. Calgary sucked. Are they suffering from being happy to get this far?
Alberta outshot Calgary 18-5 in the 1st period but were only up 2-1. Rather than take satisfaction that they dodged a bullet and pick themselves up for the 2nd, instead Calgary fell apart. Alberta racked up 5 unanswered goals in the 2nd. Calgary started their back-up goaltender Kris Lazaruk before yanking him after giving up 4 goals.
Alberta is looking stronger as the season progresses. However, it also seems clear that Manitoba was their toughest opponent.
UNB Varsity Reds v St. Francis-Xavier X-men
Game 1: March 11: St. F-X 2 UNB 3
Game 2: March 12: St. F-X 2 UNB 1 (ot)

Game 4: March 16: UNB @ St. F-X
Game 5: TBD
McGill Redmen v Western Ontario Mustangs
Game 1: March 12: McGill 6 W. Ontario 2 : [BOXSCORE]
The three conference winners will be seeded 1, 2, and 3 for the nationals. And since there are 2 teams per conference there will be one team from each conference in each pool.
Therefore, I believe that the pools will be like this if UNB beats StFX:
A: UNB, Calgary, W. Ontario
B: McGill, Alberta, St. FX
But, if St FX beats UNB I bet they'll look like this:
A: McGill, UNB, Calgary
B: Alberta, St. FX, W. Ontario
