Hockey East Playoff Seeds Now Set 

So what does this weekend’s sweep by UMass mean for the bigger picture? With the loss, Maine ends the season with 28 points. However Boston University and UMass-Lowell also ended the season with 28 points. BU owns the tie breaker over both Maine and Lowell due to their head-to-head records so the Terriers are the three seed. However, Maine owns the tie-breaker over Lowell because the Black Bears went 2-1-0 against the Riverhawks this season. Maine will get the fourth seed and host next weekend against UMass-Lowell in the Hockey East tournament.Hockey East Matchups:1) New Hampshire vs 8) Vermont2) Boston College vs 7) Massachusetts3) Boston University vs 6) Merrimack4) Maine vs 5) UMass-LowellMaine vs UMass-Lowell (@ Alfond Arena) Game 1: 7:00 – Friday, March 12 Game 2: 7:00 – Saturday, March 13Game 3: 7:00 – Sunday, March 14 (if necessary)
