Defending champions Darien are one win away from returning to the FCIAC Boys Ice Hockey Championship — but standing in their way are St. Joseph and goalie Ryan Wilson in the semifinals. Below, you can watch the first of the two semifinals carried live on the HAN Network on Wednesday, March 2, below:
Wilson got his sixth shutout of the season on Saturday, when the No. 6 Cadets (11-9-1, 7-4-1) beat No. 3 Fairfield, 2-0, in the second playdown game of the day. You can watch that game here. No. 2 Darien (17-3, 9-1 in the FCIAC) got a buy into the semifinals. You can read more about the matchup in our broadcast preview.
