Boston College Remains Unanimous Choice for Nation’s No. 1 Team After Sweeping UMass in Hockey East Tournament

Boston College is peaking at the right time, and once again, they'll head to TD Garden this weekend for the Hockey East tournament with a "No. 1" next to its name.

The Eagles were once again voted as the country's unanimous No. 1 team in the USCHO.com rankings released on Monday. BC has now won 13 consecutive games after sweeping UMass over the weekend in the Hockey East quarterfinals.

The Eagles won't play again until Friday when they square off with Providence College at the Garden after the Friars upended UMass-Lowell over the weekend. The River Hawks' loss to Providence saw them drop three spots in the national rankings falling from No. 7 down to No. 10.

Boston University finds itself back in the top five after a hard-earned series win over New Hampshire this past weekend. The Terriers will have the No. 11 Maine Black Bears waiting for them after Maine got through its quarterfinals series by outlasting No. 15 Merrimack.
