Nothing good happened for Niagara in terms of gaining an at-large bid yesterday, but chances are they will still get one. The following isn't the only way to get in (the pairwise system they use for at-large bids can get complicated, even with so few games left), but ANY of the following results will clinch a spot for Niagara:

1) Quinnipac beats Yale in the 3rd place ECAC game
2) Massachutts-Lowell beats Boston U. in the Hockey East title game
3) The CCHA tourney ends in a final other than Ohio State vs. Michigan if Wisconsin wins the WCHA tournament.
4) If Colorado College wins the WCHA tournament, either Miami or Notre dame winning the CCHA gets Niagara in.

I don't think the Mercyhurst-Canisius result has any result on whether Niagara gets in or not.
