Gameday: Terriers take on River Hawks

Third-ranked BU (5-1-0) is on the road tonight, taking on UMass-Lowell at Tsongas Arena. Lowell, coached by former BU assistant Blaise McDonald and assisted by former Terrier standout and Hall of Famer Shawn McEachern (photo), is 3-2-0 after five games, but has yielded just six goals this season. BU gamenotes include links to gametracker and the audio Web cast. The Daily Free Press previewed the contest and USCHO’s weekly Hockey East column looks at all conference games.

Looking Back:
It’s hard to believe that, prior to last night, Rangers captain Chris Drury had scored just one NHL hattrick. But that’s a fact. His second came against Tampa and included a shorthanded breakaway that left the Lightning goalie sprawled on the ice and the net wide open.

Keith Tkachuk took another step toward the 1,000-point milestone with his 10th goal of the season last night as the Blues were edged by the Sharks, 5-4. He's now at 994 points. Ex-Maine Black Bear Ben Bishop was in goal for St. Louis.
