Hosts Jim Connelly and Ed Trefzger look at the weekend of November 21-23, including Northeastern’s sweep of Maine in our Game of the Week, Cornell and Harvard staying unbeaten, and Minnesota State and North Dakota keeping their momentum going.
We also note Michigan State’s four-point weekend against Notre Dame and splits between Ohio State and Penn State as well as Denver and Western Michigan. And we take notice of a bunch of penalties in Hockey East, as well as 56 minutes doled out at the end of Saturday’s Michigan Tech at Northern Michigan game.
In addition, we have some thoughts on Alabama Huntsville’s announced withdrawal from the WCHA and St. Thomas’ request to jump directly to D-I. Finally, we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the founding of College Hockey Inc.
