Chat with Mac

Tomorrow afternoon, before taking the ice against Harvard, senior wing Pete MacArthur, tied for second in scoring on the team with 12 points, will answer questions in a CSTV chat.

The annual Tuesday before Thanksgiving meeting with Harvard will be the 139th in the series—and second at Agganis Arena— with the Terriers holding a 71-61-6 edge. The Daily Free Press reports that senior Karson Gillespie, who relieved Brett Bennett in goal in Saturday's loss to Vermont, will get the start against the Crimson and that Craig Sanders will center the third line, replacing John McCarthy.

Six days before the Terriers visit Madison Square Garden, Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro took to the Garden ice and came away with his 100th career win, a 2-1 victory over the Rangers. Commenting on his milestone, DiPietro, who also drew a roughing penalty for trading punches with Rangers' pest Steve Avery, said "It means I've been in the league a couple of years, I guess." Hmmm, where have we heard those words before? [Hint: JP]

Go figure. Former BU captain Sean Sullivan has left the state of Arizona, but it brings him that much closer to Phoenix. Sullivan who began the season with the CHL Arizona Sundogs was promoted to the AHL San Antonio Rampage. In 13 starts with the Sundogs, Sully racked up 4 goals and ten assists. He was a 9th round draft choice of the Coyotes in 2003.

John Curry also made the jump to the AHL, joining the Wilkes Barre-Scranton Penguins after six games with the Las Vegas Wrangers and a strong performance for Team USA in the Deutschland Cup. Sunday night, Curry stopped 22 of 24 shots, but the Pens fell to Binghamton, 3-0.

Saturday, while the Terrier were letting two points slip away up in Burlington, some former BU standouts were hitting the score sheet in AHL games. Chris Bourque, after a few starts with the Capitals, returned the AHL Hershey Bears and registered a two-goal game in a win over Bridgeport, which got a goal from rehabbing Shawn Bates. David VanderGulik scored for Quad City its 6-0 win over Iowa while Mike Pandolfo found the back of the net for Lowell in a 3-2 loss to Harford.

Omaha’s Chris Connolly, a 2008 recruit, failed to score in regulation for just the third time in 13 games, but for the second consecutive night, he beat a Chicago Steel goalie in the shootout, helping the Lancers to sweep the Steel. Connolly’s line is now 9-11-20 ,
