Gameday: A pair with the Wildcats

The Terriers are back in action for a crucial home and home series with New Hampshire. Tonight at Agganis Arena—where BU has never beaten the Wildcats—and tomorrow at the Whittemore Center in Durham—where BU holds a slight edge. Currently, BU is in second place in Hockey East, two points ahead of UNH, which has a game in hand.

Freshman goalie Kieran Millan is expected to be in the Terrier lineup both nights. Chris Higgins, who suffered a concussion against Merrimack and missed Saturday’s win over BC, is listed as questionable, with a decision on his availability to be made following BU’s afternoon skate.

The BU Athletics Web site has links to game notes, gametracker, and the radio broadcast on WWZN, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Beginning at 6:30 p.m., Bernie Corbett hosts BU All-Access with sophomore Joe Pereira among the guests tonight. Both weekend games are being telecast on NESN.

Previewing the two-game series—and Hockey East’s weekend— are articles from The Daily Free Press, USCHO, HockeyEastOnline and The Union Leader. The Concord Monitor spoke with Colin Wilson and UNH’s James VanRiemsdyk, rivals tonight, but close friends and linemates on USA Hockey U-18 and Junior National teams. Both NHL first-round draft choices, they passed up opportunities to turn pro to return to Hockey East for their sophomore seasons.

► NESN’s Tom Caron got together with BU Coach Jack Parker to talk about changes in the college game during his 36 years behind the Terrier bench and offers he received to coach the Boston Bruins.'s Tim Rosenthal spoke with Terrier co-captains John McCarthy and Matt Gilroy about BU's tight-knit senior class and how they've led the team's resurgence this season.
