More coverage of last night's 3-1 win over Merrimack. USCHO. The Boston Herald. The Eagle Tribune. With Coach Parker's 800th win, the game becomes an "instant classic" and is featured on our This Date in Terrier Hockey page. We also have an audio interview with Matt Gilroy. is a Web site that predicts likely outcomes--final standings--for college hockey conferences and other sports, too. This is a purely statistical method of projection, based on past games. So, for example, it doesn't take into account the fact that UNH lost several games when it was forced to play a backup goalie due to an injury to Brian Foster. There''s also a "What if" page showing projections based on varying numbers of the remaining league games BU may win. As of today, the site predicts a third-place finish in regular season for BU and a 47% chance of playing for the Hockey East title. Acknowledging our bias, we think the Terriers' chances are better than that. Still, an interesting diversion. Explore a bit.

Looking forward
2009 recruit Justin Courtnall scored his 20th goal of the season in Victoria's 5-1 win over Cowichan Valley. His 53 points are 18th best in the BCHL.

Looking back
Hershey Bears forward Chris Bourque put the puck past his former BU teammate John Curry twice last night, but the former All-American netminder was the difference-maker in a 4-3 shootout win for Wilkes Barre/Scranton. Curry stopped 46 shots in regulation and overtime, then slammed the door on all four shots he faced in the shootout. With the win, he finished January with a 7-2 record and a 2.17 GAA.

Matt Radoslovich scored a goal and an assist and Chris Dyment added a helper in the Trenton Devils’s 5-1 win over Elmira in ECHL play.

Bryan Miller assisted on the tying goal and overtime game-winner in the Alaska Aces 7-6 win over Ontario. Miller now has 30 points.
