Best Games Remaining

Boston College vs. New Hampshire (Feb. 25-26): The Eagles and Wildcats are currently first and second, respectively, in the Hockey East standings. A sweep by either team in this home-and-home series would have significant ramifications with regard to the Hockey East playoffs and NCAA Tournament seeding.

Harvard at Dartmouth (Feb. 25), Harvard at Vermont (Feb. 26): In the ECACHL, the top four teams in the regular season standings get automatic byes to the second round of the conference playoffs. Third-place Harvard has 25 points, while and fourth-place Dartmouth and Vermont have 22 apiece. The Crimson and UVM were red hot earlier in the season, but with a 9-3-0 mark since New Year’s Day, Dartmouth has been the better team of late.

Colorado College vs. Denver (March 3-4): What’s better than a home-and-home showdown between the WCHA’s top two teams during the final week of the regular season? How about when those teams happen to dislike each other intensely, as is the case with the Tigers and Pioneers?

Hockey East’s final weekend (March 3-5): It’ll be a scoreboard watcher’s delight as the league’s top four do battle. Maine visits Boston College for two games and Boston University and New Hampshire play a home-and-home series. As of today, these four teams are separated by a total of five points in the league standings.

Alaska Anchorage at Alaska-Fairbanks (March 4-5): Fairbanks is known as the ‘Golden Heart City’, but that golden heart is locked away in a safe deposit box when Alaska Anchorage comes to visit. The winner of the season series claims the rights to the Governor’s Cup…and the first two-game set between the Seawolves and Nanooks in October ended in a split.

Miami at Ohio State (March 5): Michigan leads the Buckeyes by one point in the CCHA standings, and both teams have four conference games remaining. If the Wolverines stumble along the way, OSU’s hopes for a first league regular season championship since 1972 may hinge on them beating in-state rival Miami.
