There have been a few times when Northeastern's looked really good this year. But mostly, they've looked really bad.
Stat of the week: 31
That's the number of goals that Northeastern has allowed in their seven conference losses, an average of 3.43 goals per game. By comparison, in the four conference games that they've taken points in (three wins, one tie), they've allowed three goals, an average of .75 goals per game. No team has allowed more than 30 goals per game (Vermont) on the season, and New Hampshire has allowed just 11 goals all season (albeit in one fewer game). Hey, speaking of the Wildcats...
Honorable Mention: 30
That's the number of times short that the Wildcats have successfully killed off, dating back to their November 2nd overtime loss, their only defeat of the year, at UMass. The only other power play goal that the Wildcats have allowed was in their third time short of the season, when they surrendered a man-advantage marker to St. Cloud State.
Honorable Honorable Mention: 1,100
The number of days since BC last scored four power play goals in a game. The Eagles 6-5 victory over Clarkson on November 27th, 2009 featured power play goals by Cam Atkinson, Paul Carey, Ben Smith and Carl Sneep. John Muse made just 13 saves to preserve the win for the then-15th ranked Eagles, who would go on to win their second NCAA Championship in three years the next spring.
