Gameday—Terriers on the road at Harvard

BU hopes to build off a good effort in Saturday’s tie with UNH when it makes the short trip to Harvard’s Bright Center tonight. The Terriers and Crimson will be playing the 141st game in a series that dates to 1922-23. Last season there was no pre-Thanksgiving matchup of the teams as they were scheduled to be opponents in the opening round of the Beanpot, which BU won, 4-3, on a Jason Lawrence slapper (video) with under two minutes left in regulation.

The Daily Free Press's game preview reports that sophomore Chris Connolly, who missed the UNH series with a shoulder injury, will return to the lineup tonight. With the exception of defenseman Ryan Ruikka, who is out for the season, all hands should be available tonight. UPDATE: Alex Chiasson is out with the flu. Line combinations and defense pairings:

Connolly, Bonino, Pereira
Cohen, Trivino, Saponari
Gaudet, Megan, Gilroy
Glass, Popko, Santana
