Friday night recaps; more catching up

Last night’s 9-1 win over Vermont in Burlington sent BU Sports Information Director and the journalists looking into the record book for the last time BU had such a lopsided road win, which the Daily Free Press addressed. The answer is a 1989 8-0 blowout at Merrimack. BU last hit a 9-spot in the 2005-06 post-season in wins over New Hampshire and Nebraska-Omaha.

With the Terriers flexing their offensive muscles, Colby Cohen scored his first college goal, Chris Higgins had his first non-ENG goals and Bryan Ewing had a goal and three assists to become, for now the top point scorer in Hockey East. Tonight’s rematch is only available on radio which can be accessed at the WZZN site.

Omaha left wing Chris Connolly, another 2008 recruit, scored a goal in regulation and another in the shootout to help the Lancers edge the Chicago Steel and 2009 recruit Max Nicastro 2-1.

Wrapping up last week’s Four Nations Tournament in Huttwil, Switzerland, the NTDP U18s lost to the host team in the finals. In the team’s 6-5 win over Finland, 2008 recruit Vinny Saponari had a goal and two assists and now the second leading scorer on the team with 5-8-13. He was assisted on his goal by David Warsofsky.

With NJ Devils goalie Marty Brodeur seeking his 500th career win Rick DiPietro stopped all 26 shots he faced and outdueled Brodeur for a 1-0 Islander win. The only goal came on a shorthander when Devils defenseman Mike Mottau fell down, allowing a breakaway.

The men's and women's basketball teams take over Agganis Arena today, with the men's game against St. Joseph's airing tonight on CN8 in both the New England and MidAtlantic regions.

Finally, a good read on astute hockey analyst Dave Starman takes a look at college hockey’s greatest rivalries.
