Polls and Awards

Hockey East has recaptured the top spot in the polls as the BU Terriers are the new #1 in this week’s USCHO rankings.  BU is also atop the USA Hockey/USA Today poll, which has four Hockey East teams in the top ten.

Here’s how INCH’s Power Rankings look.


UMass’ next opponent, UNH, was named Hockey East’s team of the week with their goaltender, Matt Digirolamo the player of the week.


The Collegian recaps the loss to Army and the role of bad penalties in the game.

Dick Baker covers Kevin Moore’s big moment during the game against Sweden.  He also talks about Mike Donnellan playing up front in the exhibition, complete with a picture showing how effective the tactic was.  As I mentioned in my recap of the game it’ll be interesting to see if this change takes hold as it would address a huge hole in the makeup of this team.
