Boston College Women’s Hockey Weekend Preview: UConn

BC returns to Hockey East play this weekend

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

After a surprising tie against the Huskies earlier this season, the Eagles will look to pick up 2 wins this weekend in a home/series with UConn. These are winnable games for BC, and going 2-0 would help the Eagles to continue to rise in the rankings despite a loss to a strong Saint Lawrence team last weekend.

How Much Does Laura Hate the Opposing Mascot?

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

Jonathan the Husky 2/5

Mascot Jonathan is a 3.5/5 because he’s mediocre and vastly inferior to Northeastern’s Paws. But Real Jonathan is 0/5 because he’s a real dog and he’s so cute and good and perfect.
