Game Day—Bennett is BU’s netminder—for now

The Daily Free Press reports that Coach Jack Parker has decided to go with one goalie, sophomore Brett Bennett, getting the starts, for now, explaining. “"We're not in a rotation anymore. We're just going to see how Benny goes and see what happens after that." That begins tonight when ex-Terrier Don “Toot” Cahoon brings the UMass Minutemen to Agganis Arena. The Terriers second game of the weekend is Saturday night against Northeastern at Matthews Arena. INCH’s weekly HE column looks at Coach Greg Cronin’s Huskies, now considered a serious challenger for home ice in the conference playoffs. USCHO columnist Dave Hendrickson’s weekly HE report is up, too, complete with game predictions. Terrier game notes are now available for tonight's 7:30 start. Gametracker is available, as are the All Access service for watching the game and the WWZN broadcast.

All three Terrier recruits playing in the World Junior A Challenge have advanced to the tournament semifinals tomorrow. CanadaEast (Corey Trivino, Ethan Werek) plays Russia, while Team USA (Max Nicastro, photo) takes on CanadaWest).

Former BU All-American goalie John Curry’s 36-save performance led Team USA to a 3-2 win over host Germany in the Deutschland Cup tournament in Mannheim. Curry, no stranger to close, low-scoring games, stopped 17 shots in the 3rd period and was named U.S. player of the game. He held Germany to one powerplay goal until late in the third period when a two-man advantage for the hosts became a 6-on-3 with the goalie pulled. Team USA next takes on Denmark.

The NTDP U18s 2008 recruits Vinny Saponari and David Warsofsky) take on Sweden today in the Four Nations tournament in Huttwil, Switzerland.
