Eagles #2, Terriers #3 in Latest Hockey Poll

Colorado College tied twice with #15 Clarkson over the weekend to maintain its top spot in the poll for the second straight week.  They were the overwhelming choice, gathering 37 of 50 first place votes.  The #2 Eagles, who beat #14 Vermont over the weekend, got seven first place votes, while the Terriers, who whalloped #8 Michigan, got one first place vote as they jumped up three spots.

Denver dropped two spots to #4, but held onto three first place votes after splitting with Ohio State.  They will play a huge home and home series with the #1 Tigers this weekend.  Rounding out the top five is Minnesota, getting the final two first place votes after beating and tying conference rival Wisconsin.

New Hampshire checks in at #6, giving Hockey East and the WCHA three teams apiece at the top of the polls before any other conference is represented.  UNH and UMass skated to a draw this weekend.

Northeastern traveled north and took two games from Maine, giving them a quick 4-0-0 start in league play and helping them make a five spot leap to crack the top ten, at #9.  Vermont dropped three spots with the BC loss, but is the fifth HEA team in the Top 20 at #14.  Harvard, which will finally open its regular season this week, hangs in the poll at #20.  Northeastern and UNH play a home and home series in the biggest Hockey East action of the weekend.  BU will travel to Vermont and BC and Merrimack will play a game at each venue this weekend.  UMass and Providence will also host each other this weekend.
