New, comments

The Eagles have a 2 game homestand against UVM this weekend.

Maine v Boston College

After a devastating loss to Northeastern (that shouldn’t have been a loss), BC looks to earn two much needed wins this weekend at UVM. The Eagles are on the tournament bubble and they need to firm up their defense, fix their power-play, and win some games as the season winds down. UVM used to be an easy win, but they’re a good team this year and BC is going to need to work hard to win both games.

FINAL THOUGHTS

The Eagles have looked tired lately, but they need to figure things out if they want their season to keep going. Despite not converting, they looked better on the power-play on Monday, so that’s a plus.
