Galleries: Sunday Double-Header at Boston’s Matthews Arena

On Sunday, November 20, Matthews Arena hosted a college double-header. First at 2:00 pm, the Huskies hosted the Friars as part of Hockey East’s Skating Strides weekend. The Northeastern ladies along with mascot Paws and child guests wore versions of their road uniforms that replaced the red in their sweaters and socks with pink while Providence wore special practice sweaters featuring a pink ribbon on the front.

The home team scored first and never relinquished the lead holding on for an 8-7 victory.

That night, Wentworth hosted Curry for the first time since defeating the Colonels to take the ECAC Northeast Championship last March. The Leopards were again successful and defeated the Colonels 3-1. The win was Wentworth’s first at home this season.

  1. I have actually watched MSU play at home and they can be
    pretty strong trying to defend their house. I’ve also seen UMD in the past few
    years have a hard time sweeping when away. I think a split should be called on
    this one. I think MSU might be able to at least take them into OT if they keep
    playing tough like they have.

    I do like how Minnesota is looking this year although, they
    haven’t really been tested yet. A part of me wants a split just so both teams
    can get stronger by working on their flaws, but this is hard to accomplish when
    Noora is on net.

    Clarkson and Mercyhurst are on my to watch list. I want to
    see what USCHO coaches are seeing on the Knights to make this team #5 in the
    nation. It should be interesting.

    The rush is in the air here at Hockey East. A long overdue
    rematch is finally happening this weekend. Big expectations for BU to defend
    the house and Hockey East honor. Games like this are the ones BU come out full speed,
    but I also expect Cornell to do the same. The Terriers are advertising this
    series quite a bit to fill up the seats, so I expect them to put up a show as
    they usually do when the crowd is good. A must watch game for sure!

  2. I’m surprised you didn’t pick the big RIT-Yale tilt at Rochester’s downtown arena. It’s the first time the ladies have played there, and it’s part of a big doubleheader homecoming weekend at RIT.

  3. Just a hint of how big of a deal the BU game is: Milan Lucic

    Big women’s hockey game Saturday night @BUwhockey vs Cornell. Go terriers!

  4. I’d say you are underestimating MSU…a shoot out victory on Friday and a shutout on Saturday…the Mavericks are certainly making waves. Wouldn’t be surprised if they continue to stay strong in the WCHA. Also, Minnesota is completely routing their opponents…might wanna add some more pts to your next picks for the Gophers.
