This weekend is one of those make or break weekends for Northeastern. They need at least 3 points this weekend. There’s no slack anywhere else in the schedule that can be made up if we drop a game here.
UVM is the worst team in Hockey East, so Northeastern really needs to roll here. Tear apart UVM, improve the bad facets of our game, and springboard the Huskies into the rest of the season.
So this weekend will tell us where we’re headed. If we look lagging, or can’t get anything going, then best to look forward to next year. If they can take these games by storm then it might be time to get excited again.
