Boston College Hockey at UMass Lowell GameThread (7:00 PM, NESN)

BC closes out the regular season tonight with a tilt in Lowell

It's the final day of the Hockey East regular season, and while both BC and Lowell are locked in to the #1 and #5 seeds in the Hockey East tournament, there's plenty to play for tonight. The top 5 in the Pairwise are all razor tight and BC is hoping to both hold on to a top 4 position and a #1 seed, and hopefully move up even higher. For Lowell, the stakes are high as they are hanging on to one of the last at large NCAA positions in the Pairwise.

Less important but still on the radar is the fact that BC needs either 1 point or for Providence to drop 1 point in order to lock up sole possession of the HEA regular season trophy. A PC win tonight and a BC loss means the two teams will share the title. And who likes sharing?
