MODERN HISTORY:
(aka, How They Got Here)

Notre Dame: An early pick atop all of the preseason polls, Notre Dame has played up to expectations. They bounced back from an opening loss to Minnestoa-Duluth to topple the reigning NCAA champs the following night. Since then, they split a weekend series with Ohio State, and then brushed off Rensselaer before sweeping in-conference foe Bowling Green in Ohio.

Boston College: The Eagles started the season off in style, taking home the Ice Breaker tournament title. Despite falling to Denver at home, they've reeled off five straight wins - all against Hockey East conference-mates. They won at New Hampshire, dispatched Massachusetts, edged Northeastern in OT, and then took both games of a home-and-home with Lowell.

INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS:

When it comes to the Irish, the name Anders Lee jumps right off the roster. The 6-3, 218-pound sophomore is atop the NCAA with 10 goals in just seven games. It has to be noted that slick mighty-mite TJ Tynan leads the nation in that other offensive category with 12 assists; added in with his two goals, he’s second in scoring, nationally. Junior Riley Sheahan missed the first two games of the season, but that hasn’t stopped him from posting seven points in five games since his return.

Sophomore Bill Arnold leads a seasoned offense for the Eagles, with six goals and 12 points. Well known to Ranger fans, Chris Kreider  has lived up to his billing as a top-notch power forward; the junior has pitched in 20 PIMS to go with his six tallies and five assists. Freshman Johnny Gadreau has stepped into the college game with ease, posting nine points in his first eight games for BC.

TAKING NOTES:
(aka, Notables)

The trio of Anders Lee and TJ Tynan have combined for 27 points through seven games, but are lethal when put together: they’ve factored into the same goal 10 times already… Flames and Blackhawks fans beware, as you’ll have prospects facing off against one another:  CGY: Johnny Gadreau (BC), Nick Larson (ND), CHI: Kevin Hayes (BC), Stephen Johns (ND)… Hayes is the younger brother of current Blackhawks prospect Jimmy Hayes… Coaches Jeff Jackson and Jerry York have 1148 NCAA wins and six national championships between them.
