Boston College hockey is undefeated over their last seven games, but is that enough to bring them up in the January 12 Hockey East power rankings?

The Eagles, 12-7-2 and five games over .500 for the first time this season, appear to be one of five or six good teams in Hockey East. Of course, not all of those teams will make the NCAA Tournament with its low number of at-large bids, but Boston College is going to fight to get into the top of the conference to give themselves a shot.

Did they move relative to the rest of the conference? What might it take to get them in the top four, if they are not there already?
