Boston College Women’s Hockey Weekend Preview: Providence and Syracuse

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

This weekend, the Eagles will face a hot Providence team and a struggling Syracuse team...that has its only win of the season against the Friars. The Eagles will have to quickly adjust to the loss of freshman defensive standout Cayla Barnes, who has joined Team USA. Providence will be an early test of how well BC can perform now that 3 of the team’s top defensive players are away preparing for the Olympics. BC should be able to handle both of these teams, but this could be an interesting weekend.

How Much Does Laura Hate the Opposing Mascot?

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

Friar Dom 4.5/5

He doesn’t get the full 5 stars because he’s so creepy that you have to respect it a LITTLE bit.

Otto the Orange 3/5

He’s cute I guess, but it creeps me out how he’s a cute orange face and then just the human’s legs. Also he thinks he’s the most fun, but he’s way less fun than Goldy.
