Let's be honest: nobody expected BC vs. Providence to be the consolation game of the Florida College Hockey Classic. Cornell's win over PC yesterday in overtime wasn't necessarily surprising - Cornell is a legit contender in a very strong ECAC - but the loss still represented the Friars' first since last March. As for BC... I have no explanation for what the hell happened as BC fell apart and lost to a bad Ohio State team. Now they're suddenly facing a pretty important game against a league rival as they look to prevent a three game losing streak. With one win in their last four games, this is a bona fide Slump (TM).
This game will not count for the Hockey East standings but will be huge in terms of Pairwise implications.
