2:00 ET (6) Boston College (12-2-2) @ Vermont (6-3-5) (CatamounTV)

The potential series of the season as the third-place Catamounts take on first-place Boston College. With a sweep and some help Vermont can leap into second in Hockey East which will all but clinch them a tournament spot.

6:00 ET Cornell (8-2-2) @ (2) Clarkson (11-0-1) (Pack Network)

The Golden Knights face a major test in the Big Red. Cornell sits in 5th in the ECAC but has two games in hand on the second and third-place teams. It will be on Cornell to keep up with the Golden Knight offense as the Big Red average just over two goals in conference games. Clarkson? Five.

6:00 ET (10) Colgate (6-5-1) @ (5) St. Lawrence (10-1-1) (Saints Women’s Hockey)

Colgate looks to stop the free fall as they come in riding an 0-4-2 streak. St. Lawrence needs two wins to keep pace in second in the ECAC.

7:00 ET Maine (4-10-1) @ New Hampshire (7-7-1) (UNH Live on YouTube)

Can Maine beat the teams directly above them? The Black Bears have four wins against the top half of the conference and zero wins against the bottom half. A good showing this weekend by New Hampshire this weekend could raise them as high as 3rd in the conference.

3:00 ET Union (1-11-0) @ Rensselaer (5-7-0) (RPI TV on YouTube)

An RPI win will improve their gap above the teams fighting for the final tournament spot and likely kill any hopes for Union.

3:00 ET (10) Cornell @ (5) St. Lawrence (Saints Women’s Hockey)

3:00 ET Connecticut (6-7-1) @ Northeastern (9-7-2) (GoNUxStream)

Had they not gotten swept by Maine last weekend Northeastern would have about cemented the second seed in Hockey East. Instead they’re just three points up on Vermont and Boston University with four and one more games played respectively.
