BU moves up to 15 in new polls

The BU mens' ice hockey team has moved up to #15 in the new poll released today while remaining the first team out in the USA Today poll. They also moved up to #18 in INCH power rankings which mean even less the meaningless polls besides national perception of the team. Here is the top 10 of the and my expert opinion on each along with some other notables.

1. Merrihack 8-0-1- they should have been first place last week so it is where they belong. It is weird that they get there by not playing a game this past weekend.
2. Notre Dame 9-2-2 - I was a fan of this team for one night and they came through with that 3-2 OT win over BC on Friday night. Now back to rooting against you for every game.
3. Minnesota 11-3-0 They have lost the last two Friday nights before rebounding to win their Saturday night games
4. Colorado College- 7-2-0
5. Boston College 9-4-0-
6. Minnesota-Duluth 9-3-2 - The defending national champs look strong after getting swept by Minnesota earlier in the year
7. Ferris State 10-3-1
8. Yale 5-1-1
9. Ohio State 10-3-1 - Went into Michigan this weekend and swept the Wolverines which is an impressive feat that puts them atop the CCHA standings
10. Denver 5-3-3
11. Michigan
15.BU -Gotta keep riding this 3 game winning steak into RHH this weekend at MSG
17. Cornell- Take on BU this weekend in Red Hot Hockey in NYC

Also receiving votes were UMass-Lowell, UNH , and Providence.

-Also, in the Hockey East press release, goalie Kieran " XBox is more fun than class" Millan earned himself the HE defensive player of the week for stopping 33/34 shots against UNH Saturday night. Terrier forwards, Wade Megan, Corey Trivino and Matt Nieto also found themselves in the Top Performers Categories. The press release also mentions sophomores Garrett Noonan(for already matching his goal total from last season with 4) and forward Charlie Coyle for leading the league with a +10 rating.
