It’s that time of the week, time to check in on the state of women’s hockey here in Boston.
Boston Pride (9-0-0) Standings: 1st (0 Points behind)
• Last Week: W 8-0 v Connecticut Whale (11/23)
• Next Week: v Metropolitan Riveters (11/30)
The Pride stay perfect shutting out the last place Whale with their back up goalie. Up next is the last game at Warrior for over a month as the Riveters come to town.
Boston College (11-3-1, 10-3-1 HEA) SBN Poll: 8 (-2) HEA: 1st (0 Points behind)
• Last week: L 0-3 v Northeastern (11/19), L 1-2 v Connecticut (11/22), W 2-1 @ Connecticut (11/23)
• Coming Week: v Minnesota (11/29), v Wisconsin (11/30)
The Eagles let their losing streak to Husky teams grow to four this week before finally beating UConn in a come from behind game on the road. Throwing away the four conference points certainly hurt them but they got a little help in conference with other teams losing. Now BC will get to make a statement as they travel to Nashville for rare meetings with the top western powers.
Boston University (10-4-1, 5-4-1 HEA) SBN Poll: ARV (-) HEA: T-3rd (10 Points behind)
• Last week: W 6-2 v Harvard (11/19), W 3-2 OT @ Vermont (11/23), W 5-1 @ Vermont (11/24)
• Coming Week: No Games
After a tough stretch the Terriers got right back on track beating up a Harvard team many were thinking highly of before going on the road to sweep Vermont. They will have no games over the holiday weekend but will return to action to take on BC for the last times in conference play.
Harvard University (5-2-0, 5-0-0 ECAC, 4-0-0 Ivy) SBN Poll: 10 (-1) ECAC: 3rd(4 Points behind) Ivy: 1st (0 Points behind)
Last week: L 2-6 @ Boston University (11/19), L 1-3 v New Hampshire (11/23)
Coming Week: v Wisconsin (11/29), v Minnesota (11/30)
It was a rough week for the Crimson. They were on the road against two teams they were expected to beat and were never really in either game. They will get no chance to catch their breaths as they too head to Nashville to play the western powers.
Northeastern University (12-2-0, 9-2-0 HEA) SBN Poll: 4 (-) HEA: 2nd (3 Points behind)
Last week: W 3-0 @ Boston College (11/19), W 2-1 v Maine (11/23), L 2-3 OT v Maine (11/24)
Coming Week: v Holy Cross (11/29)
The week started off nicely for the Huskies shutting out Boston College on the road and then opening the weekend with a tight win. Then the wheels fell off Sunday as the Huskies defense just couldn’t cover for the shocking lack of offensive production of late. Friday brings a chance to grab some conference points and rebound from a brutal loss.
