After a Friday night that saw all the winning teams score four goals, the race for ECAC Hockey tournament positioning is still unclear for most teams.

Ten teams remain in the hunt for a first-round bye. Two things are definite -- Quinnipiac is the top seed and has a first-round bye, and Harvard will be on the road for the first round.

Here's a look at the ranges of where 11 of the 12 ECACH teams can finish. There are three games left in the regular season.

St. Lawrence (9-6-4 22 points, second place) -- Can finish anywhere from second to ninth. The Saints need one point to clinch home ice, and four points to clinch a bye.

RPI (9-7-3, 21 points, third place) -- Can finish anywhere from second to 10th. The Engineers need two points to clinch home ice, and five points to clinch a bye.

Union (8-7-4, 20 points, fourth place) -- Can finish anywhere from second to 11th. The Dutchmen need three points to clinch home ice, and six points to clinch a bye.

Clarkson (8-8-3, 19 points, tied for fifth) -- Can finish anywhere from second to 11th. The Golden Knights need four points to clinch home ice.

Dartmouth (8-8-3, 19 points, tied for fifth) -- Can finish anywhere from second to 11th. The Big Green need five points to clinch home ice.
