Fol­lowing a 4–2 loss to the Uni­ver­sity of Mass­a­chu­setts on Nov. 12, North­eastern Uni­ver­sity men’s hockey cap­tain Mike McLaughlin held a players-​​only meeting in which, he recalled, “I set the record straight.”

Since then, the club has gone unbeaten in its last eight games, securing impres­sive road vic­to­ries over nation­ally ranked Michigan, Min­nesota and Notre Dame, the latter of which the Huskies beat 9–2 and 2–1 on suc­ces­sive nights.

The team got used to playing together,” said McLaughlin, a 5-​​foot-​​9-​​inch for­ward who has six points in 13 games. “We bought into the system.”

The hungry Huskies hope to con­tinue their strong play in the first out­door game in pro­gram his­tory at 4 p.m. on Sat­urday at Fenway Park against the No. 4 Boston Col­lege Eagles, who defeated North­eastern in both matchups ear­lier this season.

The game — which is part of the Sun Life Frozen Fenway 2012 series — will be played after Catholic Memo­rial School and Boston Col­lege High School com­pete in the first game of a dou­ble­header on Fenway ice.

Head coach Jim Madigan looks for­ward to show­casing his team’s talent for some 27,000 fans who are expected to pack the his­toric ballpark.

We’re playing well, and we want to show the Boston com­mu­nity that North­eastern hockey is a good pro­gram,” said Madigan, a North­eastern alumnus and three-​​time Beanpot champ who knows a thing or two about win­ning. “I’m a big fan of get­ting the chance to pro­mote col­lege hockey.”

McLaughlin’s friends and family will make the trip to Fenway from his home­town of Seaforth, Ontario, to watch one of col­lege hockey’s hottest team. “I hope it’s not too over­whelming,” he said. “It will be a great expe­ri­ence to share this with them.”

What are the keys to beating BC on the out­door stage? As McLaughlin explained, “We have to match their speed and play a phys­ical game.”

In prepa­ra­tion for the out­door classic, the Huskies will host No. 6 Boston Uni­ver­sity on Friday night at 7 p.m. at Matthews Arena.

The red and black aren’t over­looking the Ter­riers, who are tied with the Eagles for first place in Hockey East. “BU is a team we need to beat,” Madigan said. “It’s not a trap-​​game by any means.”

He has high expec­ta­tions for the remainder of the season. “We’re focused on the prize, which is win­ning Hockey East.”
