Storyline: BC and Notre Dame clash tonight with a lot on the line. For starters, the winner will be in first place in the Hockey East standings at the end of the night. Secondly, there are big pairwise implications as these two teams sit at #7 and #8. According to CHN's PWR predictor, isolated from other results a BC win would keep the Eagles in 7th while kicking ND down to #11. An ND win would move them to 7th and drop BC to 10th.
