Polls & Awards

Weekend wins against rivals Notre Dame and Boston University means that Boston College maintains their spot atop the USCHO rankings this week.  UNH jumped four spots to #5 this week while BU stays put at #11.  Lowell’s split against Maine drops them out of the rankings.  UMass’ success allows them to gain ground in the also receiving votes group, ahead of Northeastern and Merrimack and just behind Providence.  The team has yet to gain any votes on the USA Hockey/USA Today poll however.

BC’s successful weekend nearly gives them a sweep of the Hockey East weekly awards.  Kevin Boyle and Mike Pereira are named Top Performers for their play against Providence.  The release also notes that UMass’ seven straight games with a power play goal is the longest since 2003-04.

The Collegian has their recap of Friday’s win.

Interesting to note that Maine will be without one of their best defensemen this coming Friday against UMass as Brian O’Connor received a game disqualification for cross-checking Scott Wilson in the face late in the game against Lowell.  The Black Bears may be without forward Joey Diamond as well as he sat out the second game against the River Hawks with an injury.

Mike McMahon has this interesting table that shows where Hockey East’s recruits are coming from.

  1. How on earth did Lowell get 64 votes in the USCHO and more than us in the USA today polls… am I missing something here?
