Boston College Women’s Hockey vs. Quinnipiac Preview

BC looks to stay undefeated in a mid-week match

FloHockey: Women's Ice Hockey-Quinnipiac at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles finally return to action tonight as they take on the Quinnipiac Bobcats at Conte Forum. BC heads into the game undefeated, but having only played 2 regular season games. Quinnipiac is 4-2, with both losses occurring on the road. Quinnipiac has faced slightly easier teams so far this season, while BC earned two solid wins against a talented Minnesota-Duluth team. With freshman Daryl Watts leading the charge on offense and Katie Burt holding things down in goal, this should be a winnable game for BC. QU is a good team, but the Eagles are a great team.

How Much Does Laura Hate the Opposing Mascot?

Did you know that I have very strong opinions on mascots? Now you do!

Boomer the Bobcat: 4 / 5

I like that Boomer A) is a feline and B) is recognizable as a wild cat. But his saucy expression creeps me out and moves him very far up on the “I do not like this” scale. I do not want a mascot to have the expression that I imagine most internet trolls have when trolling.

Predictions

Laura: BC 4, QU 1
Grant: BC 3, QU 0
