Hey! Wha' happened?!

Just when I wasn't looking, the BU men's ice hockey team has gone from stunning mediocrity to rattling off seven straight Hockey East wins! They've gone from being nowhere near the polls to 10th on the USA Today poll and 8th on the USCHO.com poll.

Better yet, it's coming up on Beanpot time. For those that don't know, BU wins the Beanpot a lot:

The Boston University Terriers have enjoyed unparalleled success for more than eight decades. With four NCAA Division I national titles - more than any other eastern school - and 26 Beanpot championships in the tournament’s 53-year history, the Terriers have established a rich tradition of excellence.

(Note: The last time I wrote a post like this it kind of killed - or at least slowed - the momentum the Colorado Avalanche had at the time... Here's hoping that's not the case this time.)
