In the Pipeline: 2/26/2018

Quinnipiac concluded the regular season with a split of its North Country games beating St. Lawrence on Friday 3-2 before falling a night later 4-2 to Clarkson. In turn the Bobcats finished their first losing regular season in the Division I history of the Quinnipiac program. The loss cost them home ice in the first round of the ECAC tournament and they now will take the short trek down Whitney Avenue for a Best of 3 match-up with rival Yale for their first postseason meeting since 2014 when Quinnipiac swept Yale en route to a return trip to the NCAA tournament. Over the weekend there was a handful of Quinnipiac commits that had good weeks so let's take a look at how some of them did.
