    The Obama administration’s media spin cycle would be impressed by this article.

    This past weekend’s “big loser”, BC, two points separated from UNH, and tied w/ Merrimack but down on the tie-breaker, mostly controls its own destiny, and the “mostly” part will be resolved by Maine vs. Merrimack in Orono this weekend.

      Irish, I can’t figure out that final garbled paragraph, but if you go from being tied for first (with your destiny entirely in your hands) to being two points out of first and tied for second with a losing tiebreaker (your destiny now in your hands against UNH but not against Merrimack), how is that not a significant step backward?

    Isnt the second tiebreaker wins? If UNH and BC sweep and then UNH takes 1 point on the last weekend – BC would be #1 seed b/c the HtoH would be 1-1-1 and BC has more wins. of course Merrimack would have to lose in there somewhere

      I’d locked onto UNH holding the tiebreaker lead and overlooked the point you made. Apparently after midnight my brain turns into a pumpkin. And to think in high school I was captain of the math team…
