      As things stand today

      MA 36 (18) 38 1 at UC

      PC 29 (13) 31 2-4 BC
      NE 29 (14) 31 2-5 UNH

      BC 23 (10) 25 6-8 at PC
      NH 22 (8) 24 7-8 at NE

      Thursday night
      BC at PC (NBC Sports Boston) Providence wins all tiebreakers at 31, 30 or 29 points. The Friars clinch #2 with a win. They fall to #3 by losing or tying while Northeastern wins. They fall to #4 with a loss, a NE win or tie while Lowell also defeats UVM. Boston College can jump to #6 with a win and a Maine loss. The Eagles lose the tb to both Maine and UNH so must finish ahead of them on points.

      Will update again after the Thursday evening game to preview Friday's meaningful games.

          A Lowell loss and a BU tie means Lowell is still #4. They'd be tied with 28 points and tied with 12 league wins. 3rd tie-breaker is record vs 1st place team. Lowell swept UMass, BU didn't.

                A BU win tomorrow night gives them the 4 based on second tiebreaker (league wins - 13) since they were even head to head. A tie or loss vs Maine and UML gets the 4.

                    I would agree; however, after last night's results the game means NOTHING to Maine. I'm thinking they might "rest" Swayman. Regardless, if they can't get up for a game that means home ice for 2 or possibly three games, they don't deserve it. (and this is what some of the Lowell fans were saying last night after they couldn't beat Vermont)

                          So the fact 4th spot still up for grabs and would seem to give BU a fairly good shot at 4th would be a result of Sneddon pulling the goalie in overtime essentially in a last ditch effort to slip in with 4 must wins to go.

                            Not only that, UVM also played Lowell to a tie last night in order to keep the door open for BU. Sneddon getting his revenge on Lowell for Star Wars Night.

                              Or you can just get run out of the building in the first period and head straight to Lowell next weekend
