At 4-5-0 on the season and riding their first four-game losing streak in ten years, Boston College hockey has been reeling lately. They are in desperate need of a victory to get themselves back on track, but unfortunately for them, they must go to East Lansing to get it.
Meanwhile, Michigan State hockey was ranked in the preseason but have fallen out, and are equally desperate to get themselves going at 3-5-0. Sparty is 2-4-0 already this year against Hockey East opposition, and the Eagles would like nothing more than to make it 2-5-0.
Given how the Eagles have played in recent times, especially on Tuesday night when they were embarrassed at home by Harvard to lose to the Crimson for the first time since 2006, this may prove to be a difficult game to win.
Will Boston College be up to the challenge and finally start their rebound, or will they find themselves in an unprecedented five-game losing streak after tonight?
