After receiving a first round bye in the Hockey East Tournament, Boston College men’s hockey will face UVM this weekend in a best of 3 series. Whichever team wins the quarterfinals matchup will proceed to the TD Garden for the semifinals. This is do or die for the Eagles, whose season will end for the year if they lose to UVM. The Eagles and the Catamounts skated to two ties last month.
