Just when you think you have Hockey East figured out, the league landscape changes.
Take Boston College, for example. The Eagles lost their season opener but then went on a 10-0 run before their next loss. The team has hit a rough patch, however, in large part because of subpar team defense. Over the last 12 games, the Eagles are 4-6-2; they have dropped four of their last five but remain in first place by 2 points.
