The last time this happened, Oct. 18, 2008, BC was the reigning national college hockey champion and ranked No. 1 overall for the new season. The Huskies prevailed in that game, getting the final goal from forward Joe Vitale in the third period to win 4-3. NU went 25-12-4 that season and qualified for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1994. The Eagles are once again coming off a national championship, and the Huskies will look to repeat history in front of their fans.

In the last two years, the Huskies made trips to Alaska, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Colorado, but this year head coach Greg Cronin decided against it. Instead, the Huskies will play out-of-conference battles against Rensselear Polytechnic Institute, the College of the Holy Cross, Bentley College, Niagara University, and Harvard University. All will be played at home except for the Niagara game, which will be played Nov. 6 at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn., a neutral site. “It’s always good to get a different look at what the other leagues are doing and what the other teams are doing,” McNeely said. The only other non-conference games on the schedule are the annual Beanpot tournament, customarily taking place on the first two Mondays in February. The first round games will be played Feb. 7 with NU taking on Harvard at 5 p.m. The championship and consolation will be a week later on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.

And it’ll be a lot of fun playing in front of all those fans a lot more.” فوركس توصيات The Huskies will finish their regular season with a home-and-home series against the Boston University Terriers. Last season, the Terriers kept NU out of the playoffs as the Huskies failed to win either game during the final weekend. This year’s series will be held March 4 and 5. But first, the rivalry with BU will be renewed at Agganis Arena Dec. 8. That will serve as the Huskies last game before winter break.
