After defeating Boston University 3-2 last night, the Eagles will face UMass Lowell in the Hockey East championship game. With the exception of a loss to UNH in the quarterfinals, Lowell has been pretty much unbeatable lately. Meanwhile, BC is coming off of a rough February but has had a pretty great March. BC beat BU for the first time this season yesterday, so maybe they can beat UMass Lowell for the first time this season today? The Eagles will need to pull of an upset to win today, but anything is possible.

Coffee had to think about it a little bit, but she decided to go with BC for the win. She’s back in my good graces after picking a UVM sweep last weekend.

Visit Coffee’s friends at her former home, the Gifford Cat Shelter. Gifford is the nation’s oldest cageless, no-kill shelter and is located near BC on Undine Road in Brighton. Make a new friend before tonight’s game!


(Bad Blood is even more relevant than it was for BC/BU because we were rooting for UML to beat Notre Dame and now we are anti-UML.)
