MALDEN, Mass. -- Malden Catholic hockey's season had an auspicious start when head coach Chris Serino announced he was stepping aside for the season to deal with health problems in December.

The program was entrusted to John McLean, who took over as head coach in the interim, along with fellow longtime assistants Phil Antonelli and Pat Driscoll.

The Lancers haven't disappointed as the No. 1 team in our Top 25 poll throughout the season. But the pressure will mount on Wednesday, as they look to advance to the TD Garden and secure their second straight Division 1A title. Still, the biggest goal the Lancers hope to live up to is the ability to deliver another title in honor of their ailing coach, who is undergoing treatment in a bout with throat cancer.

We visited MC's practice on Monday to file this story:
