After a really entertaining 60 minutes of hockey, one Flames prospect didn't win a national championship while three others did.
The Providence College Friars (home of Mark Jankowski, Jon Gillies and John Gilmour) defeated the Boston University Terriers (home of Brandon Hickey) by a 4-3 score to capture the school's first NCAA championship in men's hockey.
For his efforts, Gillies was named the tournament's MVP.

The Calgary Flames finished off the regular season portion of the 2014-15 campaign this afternoon. Many regular players sat. They lost 5-1 to the Winnipeg Jets, who also sat several regulars.
The game didn't really matter for either team. It was all about resting regulars in preparation for the playoffs and trying not to get anybody injured in the process.
The Flames finish off their regular season with a 45-30-7 record.

In the annals of Calgary Flames defenders, a few names immediately come to mind. Al MacInnis and Gary Suter may have been the erstwhile puck-movers and anchors of their team's attack, but when it comes to bruising defensive blueliners, it boils down to one man - Robyn Regehr.
Following today's season finale for his Los Angeles Kings, Regehr told reporters his intentions to retire.
