Hockey East Thanksgiving Roundup

An odd week with the holiday this past week, so there was a whole bunch of hockey played. Let's shake off that tryptophan and get rolling!

1. BU - Yes, your Terriers hold the top spot with a tie against Brown on Saturday. While perhaps not their best effort on the season, they overcame a 2-0 deficit to fight for the tie at home. Our Terriers are next in play this coming weekend against the ever popular Boston College.

2. BC - It was an interesting week for the Eagles. They thrashed Maine last Sunday, lost to Merrimack again on Friday, and destroyed Vermont today. All in all, they remain at #2. I have to say, I'm a little scared that BC found their game this afternoon. Should be interesting next weekend.

3. UNH - They retain their top spot with a victory over my recently anointed "Most Hated Team in Hockey East", Merrimack. Look, anytime you beat BC or Merrimack you are good in my book. So a tip of the hat to you, UNH. Except for Dick Umile. Bite me.

4. Maine - They didn't play this week. I guess they can't be bothered to run their stereotypical run down pick up trucks on Thanksgiving week.

5. Merrimack - Yeah, they beat BC. But they lost to UNH, so explain to me why I should care. Oh, and I have news for all Merrimack fans. STEPHANE DA COSTA ISN'T THAT GOOD. Also, he's a commie. Or his grandfather probably sympathized with them. Either way, this is AMERICA (shout out to the Next Tiger Woods).

6. Northeastern - They tied Vermont, which isn't terrible for them. I still don't see this team doing much of anything down the road, but that's beside the point. Also, Chris Rawlings is a beast.

7. Providence College - They beat Holy Cross in a holy battle the likes of which hasn't been seen since the Crusades (not really). But for real, they beat HC, which won't do anything for their Pairwise ranking but something tells me they have no reason to pay attention to that anyways.

8. UMass - Amherst - THEY FINALLY WON. Twice. Only against Vermont and Quinnipiac, but hey. A win is a win.

9. Vermont - They lost, tied, then lost. Ouch. Sorry Catamounts, not looking good.

10. UMass - Lowell - They got thrashed at home by Minnesota State on Friday and Saturday this weekend. 8-3? Come on.
