Not too many surprises in the first round of the ECAC Hockey tournament. All the top seeds won. The only series that went the distance was one that was expected to be an easy sweep for fifth-seeded Dartmouth over 12th-seeded St. Lawrence. The Big Green needed an 8-1 win in Game 3 to put away the stubborn Saints.
