Gameday: Terriers resume HE play vs. Maine

Terriers and the Maine Black Bears face off tonight at Agganis Arena for the 100th time. The teams first met in the 1923-24 season, but didn’t play again until 1979. BU leads the series, 48-42-9. The Terriers welcome sophomores Colin Wilson and Kevin Shattenkirk back to the lineup while Maine defenseman Simon Danis-Pepin is expected to return from an injury. We have game notes and links to game tracker and internet audio and video broadcasts.

The Kennebec Morning Sentinel previewed the game from the Black Bears' point of view.

The first 2009 installment of BU All Access will air today at 6 p.m. ET, prior to the Maine game, on WZZN and online.

Last night’s Hockey East schedule produced a pair of games tied in the final seconds on extra-attacker goals. UMass pulled even with New Hampshire with just four seconds remaining, while Vermont knotted its game against BC with just one second left in regulation.

Looking ahead
2009 recruit, defenseman Max Nicastro scored Chicago’s first goal and then assisted on the game-winner in the Steel’s 2-1 win against Cedar Rapids. The California native has eight points in his past eight games and 19 points overall, one fewer than last season.

Alex Chiasson’s 11th goal—unassisted on a power play—put Des Moines on the board against Lincoln, but it wasn’t enough as the Bucs fell again, 4-2. Chiasson has 22 points in 24 games.

Looking back
Former BU All-American goalie John Curry earned his seventh win in nine starts—a 4-2 win over Binghamton—since being returned to Wilkes Barre/Scranton from Pittsburgh.

Former Terrier Captain Sean Sullivan assisted on both goals in the San Antonio Rampage’s 2-1 win against Milwaukee.

David VandGulik’s 10th goal of the season tied Quad City with Toronto in the third period in a game the Flames won, 3-2, in overtime.

Boomer Ewing scored his 20th goal in 33 ECHL games and added an assist but the Wheeling Nailers were doubled up, 8-4, by Dayton.
