Hockey East Captures Inaugural Big 10/Hockey East Challenge

Hockey East has conference bragging rights after besting the Big 10.


Hockey East came out on top in the first ever Big 10/Hockey East Challenge. Vermont's 5-2 win over Penn State on Saturday clinched the victory for Hockey East. The challenge didn't officially end until Sunday afternoon with the conclusion of the Boston College-Minnesota contest. The Gophers won, 6-1, but it was too little and too late for the newly formed Big 10.
