The Hockey East playoffs start tonight and since it is their inaugural season in Hockey East, it is the Huskies’ first Hockey East Tournament. They finished the #9 seed in the playoffs, ahead of UMass, Merrimack, and Maine; despite ninth not looking too good on paper, the Huskies highly exceeded expectations, as they were picked to finish dead-last. Instead they almost got home playoffs, finished the #9 seed for the playoffs and got wins over the likes of Boston College, UMass Lowell, Quinnipiac, and Vermont, as well as making the XL Center one of the toughest college hockey arenas to play at in the country. The Huskies plays their first ever Hockey East playoff game tonight as they play at #8 seed New Hampshire, who hosts them for the first round series this weekend. The video below features different Husky players and coach Mike Cavanaugh talk about their upcoming first round playoff series at New Hampshire. Go Huskies!! Continue to make this inaugural Hockey East season one to remember!!
Stay tuned for a recap of the month of February and the Hockey East Playoffs once the playoffs are over.
