Boston College will face two top-ranked teams this weekend. Here's a look at those matchups, along with a few other notable games around the nation.
The Boston College Eagles head into Friday night riding a three-game win streak and currently sitting with the No. 4 overall ranking in the nation. This weekend could boost their national standing even higher with two ranked matchups to come.
Boston College heads north Friday to take on No. 19 Merrimack for the second time this season. Their first meeting resulted in a 4-3 win for the Eagles back in November. Friday night's game is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
After a one-day break, Boston College heads back home for a 4:00 p.m. ET matchup with No. 5 Hampshire. At 16-7-2 overall, the Eagles could easily jump up a spot if they can string together two wins against these two ranked squads.
No. 13 Boston University travels to take on Maine in a two-game series. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday, and 7 p.m. ET on Saturday night.
One of the more notable slate of games for the entire 2012-2013 season will take place at Soldier Field on Sunday afternoon. The Hockey City Classic in Chicago kicks off with No. 3 Miami vs. No. 12 Notre Dame at noon CT. No. 2 Minnesota faces No. 18 Wisconsin will follow at 3:30 p.m. CT.
