Here is what we know:

• 10 teams are in. They are:

St. Cloud State
Minnesota State
Minnesota Duluth
Ohio State
Arizona State

• 2 other teams are in. They are:

Atlantic Hockey winner – Either American International, Niagara, Robert Morris or RIT

Big Ten winner – Either Notre Dame or Penn State

It’s win or go home for all of these teams

• That leaves 4 spots left for:

ECAC Hockey: Brown, Cornell, Harvard, Union
Hockey East: Boston College, Boston University, Providence
NCHC: Colorado College
WCHA: Bowling Green

• Brown, Boston College, Boston University and Colorado College must win to get in

• Cornell, Harvard, Union, Providence and Bowling Green can be at-large teams

• 3 of the No. 1 seeds are set

St. Cloud, Massachusetts and Minnesota State have secured No. 1 seeds.

Minnesota Duluth will secure the other No. 1 seed with at least a tie this weekend.

Denver will get the No. 1 seed only if it wins the NCHC and Minnesota-Duluth loses two games.

Simple isn’t it?

I don’t have the math to back me up right now, because I haven’t run the scenarios yet, so it’s a quick estimated look.
