As for the difference between Sullivan and Carlson to Meehan, it is indeed about 118 mile further from Sullivan based on the distance given by Google Maps.
Maine has also played both the Nanooks (10 games) and the Seawolves (9 games). The Black Bears have played the Nanooks at Portland (1), at Sullivan (2), Alfond (2) and Carlson (5) and the Seawolves at Sullivan (4), Alfond (4) and Carlson (1)

Since this thread is about distances, I have to say that one of my fondest memories within the past year is driving from Albany to Hanover. It's about 140 miles and 2 and a half hours of driving through the rural outskirts of eastern New York and high, snowy mountains in Vermont. The drive back sucked because it was raining heavily and dark, but otherwise it was worth the trip to see Cornell dismantle Dartmouth on that night. If I still lived in Albany, I definitely would've done the drive again next Friday (when the two teams have their first matchup this season--in Hanover).
Most conferences have their schedules divided into home games and road trips with an occasional neutral site game sprinkled in to keep things interesting.
When I looked at Hockey East scheduling they have: home games, home games not played at their own rink and home games where neither team is playing at their own rink. I'm sure there was a huge collective sigh of relief when Notre Dame excused themselves from the conference... "Wait, what? We have to leave the day before the game is played?!?"

You forgot to mention Sacred Heart along with Yale and QPac.
>Sacred Heart to XL: 58 mi
>Yale to XL: 39 mi
>QPac to XL: 37 mi
And if you actually want to go to Storrs for some unfathomable reason, add ~30 miles; Oh, and add 5ish miles to get to the actual Sacred Heart campus from it's home venue (Webster Bank Arena) in Bridgeport, CT.
