AROUND HOCKEY EAST: The Maine Black Bears earned a weekend sweep over Northeastern at Alfond Arena. Friday saw Maine jump out to a 3-0 lead off goals from Tereza Vanisova (Strakonice, Czech Republic), Alyson Matteau (Mirabel, Que.), and Brooke Stacey (Kahnawake, Que.) to hold on for a 3-1 win. The next day, Matteau scored another goal and added three assists for the Black Bears in a 6-3 victory. Northeastern's Denisa Krizova (Horni Cerekev, Czech Republic) scored twice in Saturday's effort for the Huskies ... No. 6 Boston College met Harvard University on Tuesday as part of the 2017 Capital One Frozen Fenway Series. Freshman forward Erin Connolly (South Boston, Mass.) scored two goals while senior captain Andie Anastos (Farmington Hills, Mich.) added a pair of assists to help the Eagles to a 3-1 victory at a rainy Fenway Park. Later in the week, the Eagles battled league rival Merrimack in a home-and-home series that saw Anastos score the game winner with 2:30 left in the game to earn a 1-0 victory at Conte Forum on Friday. That shutout gave junior goaltender Katie Burt (Lynn, Mass.) her 19th career blank sheet in Hockey East play, the most ever by a league backstop. The next afternoon, Anasots opened the scoring and rookie forward Delaney Belinskas (Port Orange, Fla.) earned two assists in a 3-1 win. Merrimack sophomore forward Paige Voight (St. Michael, Minn.) scored the lone goal for the Warriors in the series ... Providence earned four points in Hockey East play by sweeping UConn in a home-and-home. Friars freshman Whitney Dove (Port Moody, B.C.) scored a pair of goals while three other Providence skaters recorded multi-point games in a 5-2 win Saturday. UConn netminder Annie Belanger (Sherbrooke, Que.) made 28 saves in the loss. The next afternoon, the Friars earned a 4-1 win at home thanks in part to a goal and an assist from sophomore forward Cassidy MacPherson (Oakville, Ont.). The weekend launched Providence into a tie for fifth place in the Hockey East standings and just one point out of third place ... Boston University skated three times last week, dropping a 2-1 decision to UConn on Tuesday before skating to a pair of stalemates with Vermont on Saturday and Sunday. Junior Victoria Bach (Milton, Ont.) had a goal and two assists for a three-point outing in Friday's 3-3 draw while graduate student forward Mary Parker (Milton, Mass.) scored the lone goal for BU Sunday. Vermont's rookie forward Eve-Audrey Picard (Longueuil, Que.) scored a goal in each outing for the Catamounts. The Terriers finished the season series with the Catamounts with a 0-1-2 record ... In New Hampshire's only outing of the week, Meghara McManus's (Milton, Mass.) seventh goal of the year and 23 saves from sophomore netminder Kyra Smith (Littleton, Colo.) was not enough against Dartmouth, as the Wildcats fell to the Big Green, 2-1.
