Hockey East playoff race is a scrum

A glance at the Hockey East standings tells you that there is no clear-cut favorite to win the league. In fact, the playoff positioning only grew tighter with last week’s results.

Four teams — Boston College, UMass-Lowell, New Hampshire, and Providence — are tied for first place with 28 points. Six teams — those four plus Merrimack and Boston University — have clinched postseason berths. That leaves Vermont, UMass, Maine, and Northeastern in the 7-10 spots.
