NESN College Hockey Podcast: Assessing Hobey Baker Nominations

What a week in the college hockey world.

Minnesota-Duluth and the University of Denver typically are two of the top hockey programs in the country, but both had tough weekends. Denver had a two-game slate with Omaha and were unable to secure a win, tying both contests. Minnesota-Duluth was even less fortunate, as they were swept by St. Cloud State in a two-game series of their own.

Boston College on the other hand thrived this past weekend. The Eagles’ 10-game winning streak was snapped by UMass two weeks ago, but they have responded by winning three straight, including marquee wins over UMass Lowell and Boston University this past weekend.

NESN.com’s Dakota Randall and Patrick McAvoy discussed these topics and their impact nationally, and also gave their Hockey East three stars of the week on the latest installment of the “NESN College Hockey Podcast.” They also discussed the recent Hobey Baker nominations and previewed this weekend’s games on NESN.
