On Friday night, the Boston College men’s hockey team opens up Conte Forum for the first time in 2023-24 to face the Long Island University Sharks. BC is coming fresh off of their big win last weekend against the reigning national champion Quinnipiac Bobcats, who were ranked #2 in the nation and hoisted their banner before falling to the Eagles, 2-1 in overtime.
LIU hasn’t gotten off to the same kind of start. The Sharks dropped both of their games last weekend, 3-2 to Penn State at home, then 5-2 against Holy Cross in Worcester. LIU is an independent team coming off of 13-22-1 season that included a couple of great wins against schools like #12 Ohio State and #20 Alaska, but also included plenty of losses. The two teams will play against each other just one time this weekend.
