After a 5-4 loss to the eventual Hockey East champions on Friday night, BC will gear up for a rematch with rival Harvard in the NCAAs. The Eagles will be the #2 seed in the Northeast regional, which is rounded out by #1 Providence, #3 Harvard, and #4 Minnesota-Duluth. BC has won each of the past five Worcester regionals- 2014, 2012, 2010, 2008, and 2006. The last loss there was against North Dakota in 2005.
This will be the second meeting of the season between BC and Harvard. The two crosstown foes met in the first round of the Beanpot, which resulted in a 3-2 victory for the good guys. The Crimson are coming off a 3-1 loss to Quinnipiac in the ECAC championship.
Also, I wanted to congratulate Coach Crowley and the Lady Eagles on an outstanding season. It may not have been an ideal ending, but they made everyone at BC proud.
