Rivalry At Regional?

If CC earns a no. 1 seed for the NCAA tournament, it could meet in-town rival Air Force in the NCAA West Regional at World Arena on March 28.

Air Force won the Atlantic Hockey tournament in dramatic fashion for the second season in a row, this time topping Mercyhurst 5-4 in double overtime on Sunday in Rochester, N.Y. For more, check out

CC edged the Falcons 2-1 in January, so the idea of a rematch is rife with potential storylines. With two weeks until the regional, Air Force's Eric Ehn, Hobey Baker top-three finalist last season, could be fully recovered from the broken fibula he suffered in a third-period collision with Tigers left wing Bill Sweatt. Also, last season, Air Force took top-seeded Minnesota to the wire in the NCAA West Regional at Pepsi Center.
