Boston College Men’s Hockey vs. Wisconsin Preview

New, comment

Can BC MIH earn a win on Friday night?

NCAA Hockey: Frozen Four-Quinnipiac vs Boston College Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

After tying Quinnipiac last weekend, the Eagles face another tough team tonight. Wisconsin has played 3 games already, while the Eagles are only one game into the season. The Eagles played well against QU (for the most part), but as expected, offense is going to be a struggle for this team. BC is certainly capable of holding Wisconsin to only a goal or two, but they are going to need to score more than once to pull off a victory.

Ice Cream of the Game

Many of our other previews feature a beverage of the game, but this year we’ll be picking an ice cream dessert of the game for MIH games. Why, you ask? Because when Jerry York got the BC coaching job, he went out for ice cream sundaes to celebrate.

It’s Wisconsin, so we’ve gotta throw cheese in somehow, right? Because cheese ice cream probably exists but sounds gross, we’re gonna go with Ben & Jerry’s strawberry cheesecake as this tonight’s ice cream of the game :)

Cat Predictions

Every game, we have the cats of the Ellen M. Gifford Cat Shelter (located right across from BC at 30 Undine Road) predict the outcome of the games. The Gifford Cat Shelter is the oldest cageless, no-kill shelter in the USA.

Last week, Traveller went with his fellow cats and picked QU. This week, he’s feeling better about BC and is picking a 4-1 win over the Badgers.
