Boston College faces off against Connecticut and Providence College this weekend

Connecticut at No. 7 Boston College (Fri. at Conte Forum)

- Boston College enters Friday's contest ranked second in the Hockey East standings after winning three of their last four WHEA games. The Eagles have allowed one goal or less in 12 games this season.

- Husky freshman forward Alexandra Vakos was named the Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Month. Over nine games during the month of January, Vakos led the freshman class with six points on three goals and three assists, while posting three game-winners against Robert Morris, Vermont and Maine.


Vermont at Maine (Sat. at Alfond Arena)

- Maine junior forward Danielle Ward recorded five points (4g,1a) in two games last weekend in the series split at UNH, which included two goals in each game.

- Vermont trails Maine and New Hampshire by two points for the final playoff spot in Hockey East.

- Vermont is 4-2-7 when scoring the first goal this season.


No. 3 Boston University at New Hampshire (Sat. at the Whittemore Center)

- These two teams met Thursday night with New Hampshire taking a 4-2 decision. UNH goaltender Kayley Herman made 52 saves on 54 shots (.963 save%) in the victory.

- The loss by the Terriers was there first in thirteen contests. The streak started on November 21 in a win against Boston College (1-0).

- Last weekend, UNH recorded its 200th victory at the Whittemore Center with Sunday's 4-2 victory vs. Maine; the Wildcats are 200-43-24 for a .794 winning percentage since the building opened in the 1995-96 season.


No. 7 Boston College at No. 9 Providence (Sun. at Schneider Arena)

- BC senior forward Kelli Stack scored four goals last weekend in two Hockey East games. She became the league's all-time leading goal scorer with 65 over the weekend, passing former UNH forward Jenn Hitchcock's record of 61.

- The Friars were shut out last Sunday at Vermont, the first time the team has failed to score since losing to Mercyhurst, 3-0, on November 21, 2008.


Northeastern at Connecticut (Sun. at Freitas Ice Forum)

- This is the first meeting of the season between these two teams. UConn leads the all time series 16-7-7. NU won the season series last year, 1-0-2, but UConn was victorious in the last meeting in the WHEA quarterfinals.

- Connecticut's penalty kill over the last nine games has killed 28 of its last 32 (87.5%) opportunities. On the season they are 91 of 108 times short (84.3%).
