For ECAC and Atlantic Hockey clubs, this is it. The postseason begins next week.
American International has already clinched a share of its first regular-season title in program history, but whether or not it takes the crown outright remains to be seen this weekend. Bentley and Holy Cross both hit the road for their series as the Yellow Jackets host Sacred Heart to conclude the New England rivalry set on Saturday afternoon.
Things are less settled in the ECAC as the top five teams are separated by four points. New England schools are a major part of the race as Harvard and Quinnipiac are tied within one point of the top slot and Yale is fifth. The Crimson and Dartmouth head to the Capital District to conclude their seasons this weekend, while Quinnipiac visits Brown and Yale.
In Hockey East, there is plenty to be decided over the final two regular-season weekends. UMass clinched its first-ever regular-season title with a Thursday win, but the next five teams are separated by five points. Northeastern, Boston University, and Maine can all finish in any of five positions in the standings with the Huskies still able to climb as high as second.
