6:00 ET (8) Clarkson @ (5) Quinnipiac (Quinnipiac All Access)

The battle for ECAC supremacy begins with two teams that have seen each other a lot recently. They played four times last season with Clarkson failing to notch a win until it counted the most, the NCAA tournament.

3:00 ET (7) St. Lawrence @ (5) Quinnipiac (Quinnipiac All Access)

The Saints can make their claim for the top spot in the ECAC with a good weekend. St. Lawrence hasn’t beaten Quinnipiac since February 13th, 2014, and they haven’t scored a goal on the Bobcats in that span either.

3:00 ET (4) Boston College @ Boston University (Campus Insiders)

Neither BC nor BU have gotten off to the starts they’ve wanted. The Terriers are in stop the bleeding mode right now with three straight losses in Hockey East play.

2:00 ET Maine @ Northeastern (GoNUxstream)

Northeastern can cement a position in the number two spot in Hockey east with a solid weekend. The seven teams below them will be playing musical chairs for the six other playoff spots.

3:00 ET RIT @ (6) Colgate (Patriot League Network)

Colgate sits in sole possession of first place in the ECAC thanks to a mid-week win over Cornell. That probably hasn’t happened ever. The Raiders’ fourth place finish in the ECAC last season was their best ever and they’ll look to better that this year.

2:00 ET Providence @ Northeastern (GoNUxstream)

The Hockey East logjam has Providence in a three-way tie in second place with Northeastern and Vermont with 2-1 records. None of them have played each other and none have beaten BC so the tiebreaker comes down to a coin flip right now. (Hockey East tiebreakers are really limited.) If you go by goal differential the Friars sit in third.

2:00 ET Connecticut @ New Hampshire (UNH Wildcat Productions on YouTube)

UConn is the odd team out of the playoffs right now and the only team winless in conference play.
