The University of Maine hockey team moved up to sixth in the Pairwise ranking. With a win over Boston College tonight in the Hockey East title game, the Black Bears could move up and grab a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Maine is in line for a No. 2 seed at the moment. But depending on tonight's conference championship games (Maine fans should root for Harvard over Union in the ECAC), Maine could rise to take one of the four No. 1 seeds, or fall to a No. 3 seed.

The puck drops at 8 p.m. at the TD Garden. The game will be on NESN.
