9. Northeastern Huskies: (1-5-2) (T, 1-1 MC, L, 3-2 MC)

It went from bad to worse for the Catamounts as they were beaten soundly two nights in a row by the Providence Friars. Senior goalie Rob Madore’s numbers this season are not for the faint of heart, as the net minder has posted a .838 save percentage and a 5.18 GAA.
