Arkansas is still in the hunt for a National Championship. With UCF’s thrilling overtime win last night, Adrian now has one loss in pool play. In order to advance,the Hogs must defeat UCF and get a little help from Neumann. With a UCF loss, the ACHA would go to tournament tie-breakers, which are the following:
1. Head to head
2. Number of wins
3. Fewest goals against
4. Goal differential in all tournament games
5. Fewest penalty minutes
6. Most periods won in pool play
7. Quickest goal recorded on score sheet
8. Coin toss
In tournament play, the Hogs have given up 10 goals. UCF has given up 7 and Adrian has given up 8. Roughly translated, the Razorbacks would be best served by beating UCF by 3. Then, in Neumann’s evening game against Adrian, Neumann must score two though every goal that UCF scores on Arkansas equals a goal that Neumann must score against Adrian.
It’s a big day for the Hogs! Tune into FastHockey.com to watch the game live at 3:30 pm EST!
