UConn Men’s Hockey: Final Weekend Standings and Scenarios

Everyone else but Providence has two games left.

Ian Bethune/The UConn Blog

Part of the quirk of an 11-team league as opposed to a 12-team one (Hockey East, invite Holy Cross and get it over with already) is that it makes setting the conference tournament bracket tough.

UConn has one more game left, against the UMass Minutemen on Thursday, and then will sit and wait to see how everything shakes out this weekend.
