Hosts Jim Connelly and Ed Trefzger look at the weekend of December 6-8, starting with the USCHO Game of the Week, which saw No. 15 Providence take the second half of a weekend split with No. 16 UMass Lowell, with both teams winning on the road.
Also in this episode: Boston University showed some offense in wins over No. 8 Northeastern and last Tuesday over No. 12 Harvard; No. 10 Boston College won both halves of a home-and-home with No. 9 Notre Dame, Dartmouth upset No. 2 Cornell for the Big Red’s first loss; No. 3 North Dakota extended its unbeaten streak to 13 with a weekend road sweep of No. 17 Western Michigan; No. 19 Wisconsin was swept at Michigan State; and No. 4 Denver lost 4-1 on Friday and scored late for a 2-2 tie on Saturday with No. 20 Arizona State.
We also take note of a high-scoring Sacred Heart team that has won eight of its last nine, and congratulate Air Force’s Frank Serratore for his 400th win behind the Falcons bench.
