INTRODUCTION TO COLLEGE HOCKEY
Best Games Remaining
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
