It’s that time of the week, time to check in on the state of women’s hockey here in Boston.

• Last Week: No Games
• Next Week: v Winner of Buffalo Beauts/ Connecticut Whale (3/8)
Its playoff time. The Pride get to play the winner of the play in game for a chance to host the Isobel Cup finals.
Boston College (17-16-3, 14-11-2 HEA) SBN Poll: NR (-) HEA: 4th (18 Points behind)
• Last week: W 4-2 v Connecticut (2/28), L 0-2 v Connecticut (2/29), L 1-2 v Connecticut (3/1)
• Coming Week: No Games
The Eagles were the fourteenth team to be eliminated from contention as they fell to UConn in game three after holding the lead. IT was a rough season for BC as they threw everything they had at the season but had lost too much in the previous off season to stay at the level they were accustomed to.
Boston University (24-8-4, 18-6-3 HEA) SBN Poll: 10 (-2) HEA: 2nd (9 Points behind)
• Last week: L 2-3 2OT v Maine (2/28), L 1-2 v Maine (2/29)
• Coming Week: No Games
The Terriers were the ninth team to be eliminated as they were swept by Maine. The first game could’ve gone BU’s way as a goal in the first OT was overturned and then Maine put it away near the end of the second OT. The next game Boston University never seemed to get it into gear as they fell behind once again.
Harvard University (18-13-1, 15-6-1 ECAC, 7-2-1 Ivy) SBN Poll: 9 (+1) ECAC: 4th (10 Points behind) Ivy: 2nd (5 Points behind)
• Last week: W 4-0 v Yale (2/28), L 3-4 OT v Yale (2/29), W 4-3 3OT v Yale (3/1)
• Coming Week: @ Cornell (3/7), ECAC Championship (3/8)
After a pretty dominant game one the last two games of the series became coin flips as both went into overtime, the final game lasted until 3OT. Harvard was able to advance and now gets to take on Cornell in an attempt to extend their season.
Northeastern University (30-4-2, 24-3-0 HEA) SBN Poll: 3 (-) HEA: 1st (0 Points behind) *Clinched*
• Last week: W 5-1 v Vermont (2/27), W 3-1 v Vermont (2/28)
• Coming Week: v Maine (3/7), HEA Championship (3/8)
The Huskies need to start games more smoothly, in both games Vermont came out stronger, the first game saw the Huskies lead early but in the second game Vermont got their only lead of the series. The depth and conditioning for the Huskies was the difference as they were able pull away both times. Now with all the upsets after beating the 8th seed they now get to take on 7th seeded Maine.
