One of the most obvious options, which has been brought up by a number of top coaches, is reducing the shot clock to increase the pace of play. Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey is pretty confident that this change is coming sooner than later, and thinks that we may even see a 30-second shot clock...

Boston University fans may have their sights set on Monday’s Beanpot final, but the Terriers know they have their work cut out for them in Hockey East play.

Duke was out for blood against Notre Dame Saturday afternoon and from the final score (90-60, Duke) it appears like they got it.

The last time Duke and Notre Dame met the Fighting Irish took down the Blue Devils 77-73 handing Coach K's team its third loss of the season. So when Notre Dame came to town for a rematch Saturday afternoon the Blue Devils likely had a little revenge in mind. With time ticking away in the final half it looks like they'll get it with a nice 30-point win.Justice Winslow certainly got...
