Weekly women’s hockey wrap-up: January 18

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

Boston Pride (6-2-0) Standings: 3rd (13 Points behind)

  • Last Week: No Games
  • Next Week: v Metropolitan Riveters (1/22, 1/23)

The standings are a bit misleading as the Pride have three games in hand on Toronto and four on Connecticut. They haven’t played since their series sweep of Toronto to start December, with four games postponed since then. Boston hopes to see the ice this weekend as Metropolitan is scheduled to travel up to Warrior.

  • Last week: L 0-3 @ Connecticut (1/14), L 3-4 OT v Connecticut (1/15)
  • Coming Week: v Northeastern (1/18), @ Holy Cross (1/21), v Holy Cross (1/22)

The Eagles would like to play anybody not named the Huskies, but they have one more tonight then get a respite when the take on last place Holy Cross. BC got a boost this weekend when Michaela Boyle made her Eagle’s debut but were unable to take a win over UConn.

Boston University (9-8-4, 8-5-3-1 HEA) SBN Poll: NR HEA: 3rd (17 Points behind)

  • Last week: L 1-3 v Northeastern (1/15)
  • Coming Week: @ Northeastern (1/21)

The Maine series was pushed back and their home game against NU moved up. The first period was tight but Northeastern cruised to a win after that. They will travel to Matthews on Friday for their lone game.

Harvard University (11-5-0, 8-3-0 ECAC, 5-1-0 Ivy) SBN Poll: 9 (+1) ECAC: 1st (0 Points behind) Ivy: 1st (0 Points behind)

  • Coming Week: @ Princeton (1/21), @ Quinnipiac (1/22)

Two wins over Ivy and ECAC opponents were just what Harvard wanted as they move atop both tables. This week they can cement their place at the top with two very tough road games on the books.
