HE Playoffs begin; Honors for Women

Terriers know they'll face Connecticut next weekend in the quarterfinal round of the Hockey East playoffs, but BC, Northeastern and Providence will be watching this weekend's first round to determine their opponents. Three of the four games played thus far have gone to overtime. Vermont and Massachusetts split their first two games and will play the decider on Sunday. Merrimack leads Lowell, 1-0, and could end that series tonight. Maine also is up 1-0, and could end UNH's season--and Dick Umile's coaching career--tonight.

Looking ahead
2018 recruit Joel Farabee assisted on a pair of goals and Jake Wise contributed a helper in the NTDP U18s’ 5-2 win against the Green Bay Gamblers. Farabee is second in team scoring with 49 points (22G, 27A) in 45 games, while Wise, who missed the first half of the season with an injury, has 19 points in 21 games.
