BU Down to #2 After Stumbling Against Maine

Notre Dame reclaimed college hockey’s #1 spot in the latest poll, flip-flopping with BU as the pair of teams continues their stranglehold on the top of the ballot.  ND was last #1 seven weeks ago and the teams have gone 1-2 for 11 consecutive polls.

BU defeated Maine two games to one to advance to the Hockey East semis, but the pollsters must not have liked the difficulty the Terriers had in getting the job done.  Michigan holds the third spot while Denver and Northeastern flipped at number four and five, respectively.  The Huskies needed three games to down UMass to advance to the HEA semis.

North Dakota, Yale, Princeton, Cornell, and Vermont round out the top ten.  The three Ivy League schools, and ECAC members, each climbed three spots as Vermont, #11 New Hampshire, and #12 Miami each dropped after losing series this weekend.  Boston College, who defeated UNH, climbed three spots to #15 and UMass-Lowell, who defeated Vermont, returns to the poll at #19.

College Hockey wraps up its conference tournaments this weekend, leading into Sunday’s announcements of the NCAA tournament pairings which will begin next weekend.  In Hockey East, Northeastern and UMass-Lowell face off and arch-rivals BC and BU tangle on Friday night.  The winners advance to the Saturday Championship Game.
