It’s all about conference action for Hockey East, ECAC Hockey, and Atlantic Hockey schools from New England during this upcoming first weekend of February.
Boston College, Boston University, Harvard, and Northeastern will have a quick turnaround to the 67th Beanpot at TD Garden — a non-conference tournament although three schools play in Hockey East — after playing on the next two Fridays. Before the famed tournament commences on Monday night, it’s a busy week across the three conferences.
There are two Hockey East series that extend over the two weekend nights as Maine travels down to face rival New Hampshire and Providence hosts Vermont.
Quinnipiac returns to ECAC action with games in the North Country of New York. League travel partners Brown and Yale have a Saturday night skate scheduled in New Haven, a night after Dartmouth and Harvard do the same.
