From USCHO - BC Hockey

OK, I’ll admit it. I need your help, particularly those with great memories of college hockey. With Boston College’s win last Saturday, it has won 29 of its last 30 games, dating to last season. Long-time radio announcer at Providence Mike Logan mentioned to me that this run is the best in college hockey since a Maine team that went 42-1-2 in 1992-93. But after I looked into it, even that Black Bears team didn’t post 29 wins in a 30-game period. I’ve racked my brain all weekend trying to figure out if any other team has posted 29 wins in 30 games and the only club I could think that would qualify for that is Cornell. In 1969-70, the Big Red went 29-0-0, thus regardless of the result of Cornell’s final game in 1968-69 or the first game of the 1970-71 seasons, Cornell at least matches BC’s 29 wins in 30 games.

  1. Cornell lost its last game in the 1968-69 season. After the 29-0-0 season in 1969-1970 (thank you Ken Dryden) the team won it's first game in 1970-1971 before RPI broke the streak in the second game, so they won 30 in a row.
