Pretty much the same that could be said of our men's post about this can be said here: yes, it is early to start talking about playoffs, but with no games on the docket, this is what we've got to talk about. So here are the matchups if the women's hockey ECAC playoffs started today.
8. Dartmouth at 1. Clarkson
7. St. Lawrence at 2. Cornell
6. RPI at 3. Harvard
5. Princeton at 4. Quinnipiac
Missing the Cut:
Colgate, Yale, Brown, Union
Two series that stand out right off the bat- Harvard gets another crack at RPI at the Bright Center, the team that eliminated the Crimson in last year's ECAC semifinals at the Bright, while Princeton and Quinnipiac will be a battle of travel partners.
There's still a long way to go in the season, however, so nothing to get too excited about with the different pairings yet.
