It’s that time of the week, time to check in on the state of women’s hockey here in Boston.
Boston Pride (10-0-0) Standings: 1st (0 Points behind)
• Last Week: W 5-2 v Metropolitan Riveters (11/30)
• Next Week: @ Metropolitan Riveters (12/7)
The Pride are still rolling and have wrapped up their home stand. With a four game lead in the standings Boston is looking like the Cup favorites but it is still rather early. They now go on the road for seven straight.
Boston College (11-4-2, 10-3-1 HEA) SBN Poll: 8 (-2) HEA: 1st (0 Points behind)
• Last week: T 2-2 OT (1-0 SOW) v Minnesota (11/29), L 3-5 v Wisconsin (11/30)
• Coming Week: @ Boston University (12/6), v Boston University (12/7)
The Eagles should’ve come away with more than a tie. They were incredibly unlucky that there was no video review in their game against Minnesota and then had a couple of unlucky bounces which meant their comeback effort came up short. Now Coach Crowley’s Eagles must throw those games behind them as they have Boston University coming up.
Boston University (10-4-1, 5-4-1 HEA) SBN Poll: 9 (+2) HEA: T-3rd (10 Points behind)
• Last week: No Games
• Coming Week: v Boston College (12/6), @ Boston College (12/7)
Boston University took a week off and now end their semester with a tough test in two must win games against BC, as they are starting to fall behind in the HEA standings
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 1-5 v Wisconsin (11/29), L 0-4 v Minnesota (11/30)
Coming Week: @ Yale (12/6), @ Brown (12/7)
Harvard is in free fall right now, after starting the season a perfect 5-0 they have dropped their last four by a combined score of 18-4. They travel to rival Yale and then to one of the worst teams in the country, Brown, in an effort to turn it around, both games are crucial for the ECAC and Ivy.
Northeastern University (13-2-0, 10-2-0 HEA) SBN Poll: 3 (+1) HEA: 2nd (1 Points behind)
• Last week: W 11-0 v Holy Cross (11/29)
• Coming Week: @ Holy Cross (12/4)
Well the offense showed up. Coach Flint and his staff would’ve loved to have had a few of these last weekend but the Huskies scored early and often to support Gwyneth Phillips in her second shutout in as many games. Their last game before the semester break is a trip to Worcester to take on those same Crusaders.
Record This Week: 2-3-1
