Non-conference action ruled the weekend around New England college hockey, but the opponents didn’t change results for several of the region’s top Division 1 teams.
Quinnipiac hit the road for Thanksgiving and handed Hockey East foe Maine a two-game sweep in Orono, while Massachusetts also reached the 11-win mark with an overtime triumph against Princeton. The Minutemen own the longest winning streak in the country at eight games.
Providence hung tough despite a winless weekend against an NCHC opponent in Denver, while Yale enjoyed an unbeaten trip to the Friendship Four in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where Boston University also competed and lost a one-goal game to Union for the championship. Harvard improved to 3-1-2 over its last six games with a win on the grand New York City stage.
Other weekend highlights included a two-win weekend for Bentley, which is tied with AIC and three other teams for fifth in Atlantic Hockey with nine points. The Falcons upended Boston College before its fourth league win of the year at Holy Cross. New Hampshire posted a 1-0-1 mark against Miami, while Northeastern, Vermont, and UMass Lowell also had non-league wins.
