ECAC Northeast and MASCAC wrap: Feb. 21

With the exception of the postponed Wentworth-Curry game Saturday, regular season play has ended in the ECAC Northeast.
The good news is most of the Curry players appear to be out of the hospital following a scary incident after Thursday’s game at Johnson and Wales.
No makeup date has been announced. The Colonels have already clinched the top seed and a bye in the playoffs, while Wentworth could overtake JWU for the second bye with a win.
Here’s a look at games that did take place over the weekend. Check back later for a playoff breakdown and a look at the final weekend in the MASCAC.

The conference has yet to announce game times.

Becker 7, Salve Regina 5: A game with no playoff implications (Becker had locked up the fourth seed, while Salve was already out) saw the Hawks rally back with four third period goals to erase a 5-2 Seahawks’ lead. Kevin Sullivan had a goal and two assists for Salve, while Brian Murray scored twice for Becker. Salve Regina will play a makeup game Tuesday against Assumption. The orginal date had been moved due to the snow earlier in the month.
Western New England 3, Suffolk 2 (OT): A duel for the final playoff spot went to overtime, with Dan Monahan adding his second goal of the game to send WNEC into the playoffs.  Meanwhile, the Rams are going home after entering last year’s postseason as the third seed.
Nichols 6, Johnson and Wales 3: A three-goal outburst in the final period helped the Bisons emerge with a win and put JWU’s playoff bye in jeopardy.  All three scores came within a minute, including a pair by Matt Roberts, one while short-handed.

Salem State 5, Westfield State 1: Josh Franklin’s two goals helped Salem coast to a 4-0 lead en route to a 5-1 win on Senior Night.  Jame Lacour made 29 saves in net for the Vikings, who hold a one-point lead over UMass Dartmouth for first.
Plymouth Sate 5, Framingham State 4 (OT): Their playoff status is still in limbo, but Framingham State has been giving the conference’s top teams a run for their money. After beating Fitchburg and playing close against Salem State, a Kyle Greco goal under a minute into overtime sent the Panthers over with the win.  Daniel Miressi added his 16th and 17th goals of the year for the Rams. With the win, Plymouth is two points behind UMD for second, and three behind Salem State for first.
Fitchburg State 5, Worcester State 2: The Falcons used a pair of third period goals by Trevor Lawler, including an empty-netter, to put some distance between themselves and the Lancers in both the game and the standings. The win snapped a five-game losing streak for Fitchburg, which now has a comfortable six point lead over Worcester for the fourth seed.
