When it comes down to it, no Northeastern team during my tenure here has won the big games.
Tonight is a big game. If they win, it makes Sunday a bigger game.
Northeastern's biggest games of the season this year:
Game 2 in the Minnesota Tournament
Game 2 of the Beanpot
Clinching Game for League Title
Notice any themes, here?
It was Upset City last night. With the exception of BU, who beat Maine on a late goal, every team lost on their home ice.
No #2 seed has ever lost to a #7 seed in the Hockey East quarterfinals. UMass fans are probably pretty excited at the prospect of making history tonight.
