Breaking Down the CHA First Round

CHA bracket

Schedule

The CHA tournament will reseed after the first round which means that Mercyhurst will play the lowest ranked advancing seed.

I barely watched any CHA games this year (thanks Eversport) so my analysis is going to be severely lacking.

A bunch of shots and a pretty even series her…the playoff games should be interesting.  (I warned you.)  Robert Morris had a weird end of the season going LW versus Mercyhurst, then LL versus Syracuse, then TT versus RIT before sweeping Penn State to take the 3 seed away from them.  I feel like maybe they underachieved.

Lindenwood has to stay out of the penalty box.  With bad shot numbers and the fewest penalties taken (which would inflate shots allowed were it larger), it’s clear Penn State is not a good team at even strength and will struggle when they don’t have power play opportunities.
