One hot topic in New England these days is the prospect of Hockey East expansion. At least one published blogger says Enrico Blasi’s RedHawks would make an excellent addition to the powerhouse college hockey conference which includes Boston University, Boston College, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine among its 10 members.
BC Interruption, which describes itself as an unofficial blog of the Boston College Eagles, lists Miami No. 2 on a list of five potential additions. No. 1 on the list is Notre Dame.
The Eagles saw Maine snap their seven-game winning streak Sunday, but they are still the team to beat in Hockey East. BC leads the conference in offense (3.71 goals per game) and special teams (+15 net) and ranks second in defense (2.19 goals-against average). Junior forward Cam Atkinson leads the league in goals (17) and senior goalie John Muse is tops in save percentage (.930).
