Irish Tops, Eagles Hold Second

USCHO Ice Hockey Polls

Notre Dame men’s ice hockey doesn’t have a complete lock on the top spot in this week’s rankings but they aren’t far off. The Irish have corralled 44 First Place Votes among the 50 available as they hold off Clarkson and St. Cloud State in the polling.

Sitting on top of the Big Ten, Notre Dame has played into a position where it’s possible but not probable for any other conference team to catch them.

Boston College sits atop the Hockey East standings but Northeastern is only one point behind the Eagles who stumbled at the Ice Vegas Invitational. The team had a bad showing with a loss and a tie. Then they suffered a loss in conference play to Providence.

Boston College women’s team is now tied for #2 with Clarkson as both teams received 122 overall points among voters.  The Eagles are coming off a loss and overtime win against Northeastern.

Syracuse is third in College Hockey America conference standings. Cuse is coming off two losses, one to Cornell the other to Colgate.
