Best NU sport: Hockey

The world’s oldest hockey arena is filled with excitement, energy and anticipation when the Northeastern hockey teams take to the ice, hoping to bring in a win.

Despite having a less than successful season, hockey was voted best Northeastern sport, proving Husky fans in fact do support the players.

First year men’s coach Greg Cronin, led his players to 3-24-7 overall and a record 3-17-7 in the conference.

The team lost to Boston College in the semi-final of the Beanpot, 5-2. They then went on to the consolation game against Harvard and lost 5-0.

In her second season as head coach of the women’s team, Laura Shuler led her team to a season record of 8-24-1 overall and 6-14-1 in the conference.

In the Beanpot, the team lost to Boston College in the semi-final round 4-3 and lost again in the consolation game to Boston University 3-1.

They may have few wins, but fans still enjoy watching their home teams take to the ice.

Jackie Findra, a freshman communications major, said she enjoys the atmosphere and participating in the numerous cheers.

“The games are exciting and exhilarating,” she said. “I always participate in the cheers – You have to.”

The section located above the goal is known as the Doghouse. Fans gather together in this section wearing all black and cheering for their Huskies.

“The Doghouse is loud and can sometimes be offensive, but it’s a lot of fun,” said Amy Malmberg, a freshman psychology major. “Going to the hockey games is one of the most intense and energizing sports experiences at Northeastern.”
