Weekly Rankings

A lot happened in the college hockey world over the weekend. One team (Notre Dame) clinched a regular season title, two (Air Force and RIT) shared one and another (North Dakota) moved within a point of clinching one.

Going into the last weekend of play we’ll take a look at the games facing the teams in our rankings, and where we think they’ll finish off the season.

1. Boston University (25-5-4) (16-5-4) No Change

BU has a home and home with Providence this weekend. BU has a great shot at the Hockey East regular season title, but needs help from their rivals Boston College to get it done.

2. Notre Dame (27-5-3) (21-4-3) No Change

The CCHA champs are off this week and have a playoff series to look forward to before heading to the Joe (hopefully).

3. Northeastern (22-8-4) (17-5-3) No Change

The Huskies can lock up the Hockey East regular season title this weekend.

4. Michigan (26-10-0) (20-8-0)

The Wolverines are off this week before hosting their 2nd round playoff series

5. Vermont (19-8-5) (14-7-4) Up 2

The Catamounts welcome New Hampshire in a battle that will decide who takes third in the Hockey East regular season. We see UVM taking 3 points.

6. North Dakota (21-11-4) (16-6-4) No Change

The Sioux are one point away from wrapping up the WCHA crown. It’s a tough trip to Wisconsin, but we think they have it in them.

7. Denver (20-10-4) (16-8-3) Down 2

The Pioneers finish up with one game at Colorado College. They need a win and a Wisconsin sweep for the WCHA title.

8. Miami (19-10-5) (17-7-4) No Change

Miami is off this weekend.

9. Yale (20-7-2) (15-5-2) Up 1

The Bulldogs are off this weekend.

10. Cornell (18-7-4) (13-6-3) Up 1

The Big Red are off this weekend.

11. UNH (18-9-5) (14-7-4) Up 1

It’s off to Burlington for the Wildcats in a battle for 3rd in Hockey East

12. Princeton (20-9-0) (14-8-0) Down 3

The Tigers are off this weekend

13. Ohio State (20-12-4) (13-11-4) Up 2

The Buckeyes face last place Bowling Green in the first round of the CCHA playoffs. A win sends them to Fairbanks.

14. St. Lawrence (19-11-4) (11-7-4) Up 2

The Saints are off this week

15. Minnesota (14-11-7) (11-10-5) ——-

The Gophs head to Michigan Tech, where two wins could help them get as high as 3rd in the WCHA.

16. Minnesota -Duluth (16-10-8) (10-9-7) Down 2

The Bulldogs host Alaska-Anchorage. Two wins could have them in position for a 3rd place finish as well.

    Boston College is either the team no one wants to play to the HE tourney or the biggest pretender in all of NCAA hockey…will the real Eagles please stand up?
