Boston College Eagles (0-1-0, 0-0-0 Hockey East) at
Denver Pioneers (0-1-0, 0-0-0 NCHC)

Magness Arena, Denver, CO
It’s ICEBREAKER CONSOLATION TIME, y’all!
BC takes on Denver in one of the best (and probably one of the friendliest) inter-conference rivalries in college hockey in the third place game of the IceBreaker, after both teams lost to less-heralded opponents last night.
Both teams are ranked in the top 5 of the USCHO poll, although I think pretty much everyone on the planet who is not on the USCHO voting panel agrees BC’s rating was a bit silly.
Denver’s ranking is probably justified, and they will be looking to demonstrate that after losing to Ohio State despite dominating the Buckeyes last night in terms of shot attempts.
This will be your first chance to actually watch the Eagles this season - tune in on altitude2 if you get DirecTV, or stream the game on NCHC.TV. If you don’t want to pay for the video stream, listen for free on BCEagles.com, and join in the conversation here or on twitter: @bcinterruption, @joegrav and our Denver friend @letsgoDU will be live-tweeting the proceedings.
