Game Day—UMass-Lowell

The Terriers take on UMass Lowell tonight at Agganis Arena, the third and final regular season meeting. BU won the two previous games by 6-4 and 3-2 margins. For the River Hawks, their leading scorer, defenseman Maury Edwards has been a Terrier nemesis, with six goals and four assists in eight games against the Scarlet & White.

The "tween the beans" game is an annual concern for Terrier fans, worried that anticipation of the Beanpot championship game will result in a lack of focus for the business at hand--earning two critical league points. In fact, of the last 20 "between" games, BU has won 18, falling only to Providence in 2004 and Lowell in 2001. Since 1986, there were three years with no "between" game on the schedule.

Game notes from, along with links to gametracker and online Webcasts (WWZN and BU All-Access) are now available. Also Hockey East weekly preview columns from USCHO and Inside College Hockey and a preview article from The Daily Free Press.
Coach Jack Parker’s 800th victory (the Jan. 30 win against Merrimack) will be recognized tonight during an on ice pre-game ceremony.

A BU online publication, BU Today, provides a slide-and-audio feature in which co-captains Matt Gilroy and John McCarthy reveal how they prepare for game day.

That slide show was cool, but I found this hilarious error at the bottom of the text:
