Three CCHA teams join the party this week, but it's Hockey East that stays on top of the INCH Power Rankings. Boston College takes over the top spot, as its 5-0-0 start, with wins over Denver, Wisconsin and UMass Lowell, has officially ended its one-year absence from the nation's elite.

Take a look at how the Inside College Hockey editors and staff think the contenders stack up – and let us know what you think. Send us your own Power Rankings, with comments, and we just might publish them.

1. Boston College 1 Eagles post sweep, even without elder Eaves (rib injury). Off to best start since 1983-84.
2. New Hampshire 1 Wildcats tie Northeastern in a game that features more saves than a Billy Graham revival.
3. Denver Pioneers' football team disbanded in 1961, but that didn't keep icers from hanging TDs vs. Huntsville.
4. North Dakota 2 Sioux climb two spots with tougher-than-expected sweep of Niagara.
5. Minnesota 1 Gophers earn three of four points at Michigan Tech...and they're fortunate to do so.
6. Michigan 1 Wolverines notch first regular-season sweep against Fairbanks at Yost since 1995.
7. Cornell 2 Still unbeaten. Of course, they haven't played yet. Big Red tee it up Friday at Ohio State.
8. Providence 2 Fregoe finishes hat trick with OT winner against Lowell Friday in Friars' first real test.
9. Maine 1 Win and tie vs Western Michigan at Alfond. Better than last year's split at Kalamazoo.
10. Boston University 5 The tie vs. Vermont raised a red flag. The loss to Merrimack concerned us. The win vs. Nebraska-Omaha reassures us...a little.
11. Colorado College 1 Tom Preissing doesn't score a goal. But Tigers earn three points on UMD's postage-stamp size rink.
12. Ferris State NR Break up the Bulldogs! Ferris serves notice with sweep of Notre Dame.
13. Harvard 1 The Crimson keep rising, without playing games. They can start earning their stripes Saturday at Brown.
14. Miami NR RedHawks post 13 goals in sweep of Northern Michigan and are averaging 5.25 goals per game.
15. Wisconsin Mike Eaves may be happy not to see his son Patrick this weekend as WCHA schedule opens vs. Denver.
16. Michigan State NR  Rick Comley wins 600th game behind Matt Migliaccio's strong goaltending; things appear back to normal in East Lansing.
Ohio State, Wayne State, St. Cloud State, Notre Dame, Quinnipiac
