Weekly women’s hockey wrap-up: March 9

A look at the weekend's action in local women's hockey.

Jim Pierce

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

Boston Pride (24-1-0) Standings: 1st (0 Points behind) *Clinched*

Last Week: W 5-1 v Connecticut Whale (3/8)

Next Week: v Minnesota Whitecaps

After a slow start the Pride decided turn on the afterburners and cruise past Connecticut. The Captain showed her resolve and gave the Pride the lead a little over a minute after the Whale managed to tie it up. The third period was all Pride. Now the Pride will play for their first Isobel Cup since Brianne McLaughlin stole it out from under them in season two. Their opponents are the Whitecaps, the only team to beat them this season. This means we will crown the first two time champion on NWHL history on Friday night.

Boston College (17-16-3, 14-11-2 HEA) SBN Poll: NR (-) HEA: 4th (18 Points behind)

Last week: No Games

Coming Week: No Games

Eliminated

Boston University (24-8-4, 18-6-3 HEA) SBN Poll: 10 (-2) HEA: 2nd (9 Points behind)

Last week: No Games

Coming Week: No Games

Eliminated

Harvard University (18-14-1, 15-6-1 ECAC, 7-2-1 Ivy) SBN Poll: 9 (+1) ECAC: 4th (10 Points behind) Ivy: 2nd (5 Points behind)

Last week: L 0-4 @ Cornell (3/7)

Coming Week: No Games

Their attempt to extend their season failed pretty badly as they were shutout by Cornell and became the 24th team eliminated from NCAA consideration.

Northeastern University (32-4-2, 24-3-0 HEA) SBN Poll: 3 (-) HEA: 1st (0 Points behind) *Clinched*

Last week: W 3-1 v Maine (3/7), W 9-1 v Connecticut (3/8)

Coming Week: v Princeton (3/14)

The Huskies were able to defend their crown for a third consecutive HEA title. The path they travelled to get there as the easiest path in tournament history due to all the upsets in the quarterfinals. They were almost unable to do it when Carly Jackson kept doing her thing for Maine and almost stole one for the Black Bears before the NU offense showed up and put it away. The offense stayed active en route to a historic blowout in the title match. They will now play host to Princeton in what most are considering the most exciting quarterfinal in the NCAA this year.

Record This Week: 3-1-0
