INCH Power Rankings for November 27

Inside College Hockey has its new Top 20 for college puck up. Eight solidly traditional programs are lodged in the Top 10, with Miami the up-and-comer of recent seasons at 7 and Cinderella in South Bend at 4.

  1. Minnesota (12-1-2) “In nine home matches, the Gophers have averaged an even five goals per game while allowing 1.78 goals per contest.”
  2. New Hampshire (9-2-1) “UNH hasn’t gotten even a sniff of the attention that BC and Maine have received this season, but the Wildcats have quietly put together a five-game win streak and an eight-game unbeaten streak (7-0-1).”
  3. Maine (8-3-1) “Before the bridges in Orono start filling up, remember the Black Bears got off to a hot start before cooling off in late November last year, too. It’s safe to say Maine rebounded nicely.”
  4. Notre Dame (10-3-1) “The Fighting Irish won their 10th game of the season at Nebraska-Omaha Friday. Last season, win no. 10 came Feb. 10.”
  5. Boston College (7-4-1) “The highs have been high and the lows have been low. BC fans are hoping The Hights will plateau.”
  6. Michigan (11-4-0) “Saturday’s drubbing by Minnesota not only snapped the Wolverines’ seven-game win streak, but also extended U-M’s losing streak against the Gophers to five.”
  7. Miami (11-5-0) “Making a State-ment? RedHawks’ next three league series are against Ferris State, Ohio State, and Michigan State . . . and they could face Bowling Green State and Ohio State in the Ohio Hockey Classic holiday tournament.”
  8. Denver (9-4-1) “Ryan Dingle has 7-3-10 during the Pioneers’ current unbeaten streak, which reached seven games with wins against Air Force and Robert Morris.”
  9. Boston University (5-2-4) “The Terriers have had eight months to think about that 5-0 whitewashing handed to them by BC in the Northeast Regional Final. If there is any weekend they’d like to jumpstart their season, this one is it.”
  10. North Dakota (7-6-1) “Goaltender Philippe Lamoureux made 15 saves in the Fighting Sioux’s 5-2 win against Colorado College Saturday, his first victory since Oct. 13.”
