A November 13th game between Notre Dame and Northeastern was suspended after the second period due to a Zamboni breakdown and subsequent problems with the ice.  The score was tied 0-0 when the game was suspended.  On November 16 Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna announced the game will be recorded as a tie as the two teams could not find a workable date to resume the game.
