This past weekend marked the last full slate for New England’s Division 1 college hockey teams prior to the holiday break. Now, only two games remain prior to Christmas as Yale visits UMass on Tuesday before a Friday night game in Boston between Dartmouth and Boston University.
UMass and Quinnipiac split the results in a long-anticipated series of top regional clubs in Hamden, Conn., and Amherst, Mass. The Bobcats posted a shutout in the series opener before the favor was returned before a sold-out crowd at Mullins Center the following night.
Providence and Northeastern concluded its pre-holiday schedules with convincing Hockey East victories, while BU and UMass Lowell split yet another series in that league. Sweeps were the result for Boston College and Yale in its respective conference play, while Brown earned three ECAC points on home ice.
Finally, Sacred Heart rounded out its calendar with a sweep at RIT in the only Atlantid Hockey series involving a New England club over the weekend.
