UML is not playing another game. Both schools could use the extra game played. Remember back in January when a weekend series was cancelled and at the last minute we got a Sunday afternoon game? Should we expect something like that to happen?
      Sunday games on this particular weekend are difficult since the first round of the HET is Wednesday. So if UML played game 2 Sunday and then faced a team on Wednesday who played one game on Friday the prior weekend, that puts UML at a significant disadvantage. Currently, every HE team is playing one game this weekend. I'd love to see us play two, but it would've had to be in the time slot we had today. Given the UNH game was cancelled 24 hours ago, likely not enough time to ask UML to prepare and suit up for a game 24 hours later.
      ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      • Merrimack's season is done.

        I feel like we're walking on serious egg shells here. I'm going to try and enjoy each game BU plays, because it might be their last.

        • Sooooo, since BU played them this past weekend were they all exposed?? Assuming BU is continuously being tested this week.

          • They've gotten this far, there will be a tournament. I guess the question would be what will BU do if they have a COVID blip leading up to it. I don't know what rules they have been following to go on pause but that would be interesting...

              Hmmmm. Mookie woulda guessed that there is a least a couple directed giving amounts that produce black figures for Harvard hockey....

                I know it's indoors vs. outdoors, but the NFL had no cases they could document passed between teams.

                    Such a shame. I'll never forgive Sweeney. EVERYONE knew he wasn't ready for the NHL, but Sweeney promised him a game to burn a year of his ELC. He was turning into such a good college player, played a huge role in the win over North Dakota in the NCAAs (the "review" game). And it has all gone to crap.

                      I think I read it was a MC coach who tested positive. Obviously he could have passed it to his players and they could have passed it to BU players, but at least there is an additional degree of separation.

                          2nd seed. There was no 2nd place as hockey East didn’t have a regular season title. This was all for seeding.

                            • Today's game is a chance to 1) avoid BC until the championship game and 2) finish 11-3 which hopefully gets the team a 2 seed in the NCAAs.

                              • BU can only finish as low as 3rd so avoiding BC until title game is already accomplished. This game today determines your path to the title game. Taking upsets out of the equation, your path as #2 would be UML and home to UMass. As #3, it would be NU and then at UMass.
