BC Hockey: Hockey East tourney an all-inclusive affair
For the first time as a double-digit member conference, the Hockey East Tournament will include all comers. While this is probably good for the conference as one-game playoffs tend to build excitement and every team gets to pay attention, the teams with byes might not like what they get, either.
