Three Days of Hockey!

It's the first full weekend of hockey that counts for the Engineers, with the women kicking off the home portion of the schedule on Friday and Saturday and the men getting the games that count underway on the road on Saturday and Sunday.

The women open their home games with contests against #7 Boston University tonight at 7pm (it's "pack the house night," so hit the Field House if you can get there) and then host Northeastern tomorrow afternoon. Tonight is obviously going to be a big challenge for the Engineers, but it's in those tough non-conference games that you earn the grit to gut out important league wins.

The men, meanwhile, open with a game in Bridgeport, CT against the Sacred Heart Pioneers, a game that they absolutely must win if they're going to inspire the confidence most pundits have in them this season. That game is at 1pm on Saturday and it's totally free admission-wise if you can get down to southern CT. (We may be unable to live-tweet this game, unfortunately, but we'll try to provide updates when and where possible.)

The weekend concludes with a rare trip to #4 Boston College, which is also their home opener. The Eagles lost 3-1 to Michigan last night, so you know they're going to be slightly amped not wanting to open their season 0-2.

You'd have to be clinically dead not to be pumped up for the first full weekend, especially three days worth, but in case you need a helping hand, here's a classic pumpup track that's pushing a quarter-century old... but definitely works.
