2013 Hockey East Tournament Bracket Set: Eagles To Face Catamounts At Conte Forum

via bceagles.com

The no. 2 Boston College Eagles will face the no. 7 Vermont Catamounts in the Hockey East Quarterfinals.

The bracket is set for the 29th annual Hockey East Tournament, starting with a best-of-three quarterfinal round on campus sites of the top four seeds next weekend.

With a 4-1 victory over Providence, UMass-Lowell wins the regular season title for the first time in program history. The River Hawks become the first non-Big Four member to take home the regular season title. The title also marks the first piece of non-holiday tournament hardware for UML during their time in Division I. Lowell will host Maine starting on Thursday night at Tsongas.

Raise your hand if you had UMass Lowell as the first non-Big Four program to take home the Hockey East regular season title.

Boston College (20-10-4, 15-9-3 Hockey East) earns the tournament's no. 2 seed, finishing a point behind Lowell. The Eagles will host the no. 7 seed Vermont Catamounts (11-17-6, 8-13-6 Hockey East) at Conte Forum in a rematch of this weekend's regular season series finale. BC won the regular season series 2-0-1, outscoring the Catamounts 15-7.

Despite its second-half slump, Boston University managed to finish as the no. 3 seed, two points back of Lowell for first. The Terriers will host no. 6 seed Merrimack at Agganis starting on Friday. Providence, which had a shot at the outright Hockey East regular season title, falls all the way to the no. 4 seed. The Friars will host the no. 5 seeded New Hampshire Wildcats at Schneider Arena.
