BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Quinnipiac University will open up the NCAA hockey tournament about 30 miles from campus in Bridgeport.

The Bobcats, who lost in last year’s national championship game to Yale, are the second seed in the Eastern Regional. They will face Providence in the opening round at the Webster Bank Arena.

The other first-round game has the region’s top seed, Union (28-6-4), facing off against fourth-seeded Vermont (20-14-3).

The Bobcats are currently 24-9-6 after losing 3-2 in overtime in the ECAC tournament semifinals.

This will be Quinnipiac’s third NCAA Tournament appearance, and second straight.
