NCAA Hockey Tournament 2011 Schedule: Denver-North Dakota, New Hampshire-Notre Dame Drop Pucks On Sunday

With the Michigan Wolverines and the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs booking trips to the Frozen Four on Saturday, only two spots remain to play at the Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota on April 7. Will the Denver Pioneers capture one of the two remaining spots?

If they want to play for their eighth national championship, the Pioneers will need to defeat the North Dakota Fighting Sioux, to whom they lost in double overtime in the WCHA tourney finals the previous weekend. North Dakota is the only remaining No. 1 seed in the tournament, and they beat RPI, 6-0. The winner faces Michigan.

The other game on Sunday is between New Hampshire and Notre Dame. New Hampshire upset No. 1 seed Miami (OH), 3-1. Notre Dame needed overtime to send Merrimack home for the season, 4-3. Winner plays Minnesota-Duluth.

Here is the TV schedule for Sunday's games:
