A little surprised that Norwich isn't the unanimous #1 in the d3 hockey poll.

Norwich has only played 4 games, if they are still undefeated after this weekend then i could see them at #1 unanimously,

They beat UNE 1-4, Southern Maine 1-4, NEC 5-2, and St. Anselm 2-3-1. Not exactly facing lots of schools with winning records in those 4 games. Not to discount their wins thus far, but if they want to be solidly on top then they have to win the Primelink.
