This weekend, Northeastern faces UNH for a home and home series in league play. UNH has had a middle of a road record so far, with 2 wins and 2 losses in Hockey East play, and a 4-5-1 record overall. However, UNH did annihilate UMass by a whopping 9-0 last weekend, so the New Hampshire’s offensive power has a lot of kick to it.
Northeastern got mighty lucky last weekend, benefiting from a lot of post shots and missed opportunities by the Riverhawks. For NU, this is an opportunity to really get the ball rolling and pick up some Hockey East wins. UNH is a good team, but certainly beatable, and if NU can pick up some points against them, it’d really help down the stretch.
Northeastern’s played better so far this season than some might have thought. Picking up some points this weekend will go a long way toward showing the league they are a team to be taken seriously.
