Game day--BU takes on Maine

With the out-of-conference schedule now complete, BU faces a critical weekend with a pair of home games against Maine, which has been one of the surprise teams of the season. The Black Bears finished 8th in Hockey East last season, but currently are tied with BC for second place and they're six points ahead of the tied-for-fifth-place Terriers. The weekend's results will go a long way in determining if BU's hopes for achieving home ice for the conference playoffs will be realized.

Tonight's game is a 7:30 p.m. start that airs on NESN. Tomorrow game, a 7:00 p.m. start will air on BU All-Access. has game notes and links to game tracker and the Radio Webcast on WWZN.

Looking back
The Worcester Telegram's Olympic coverage include a feature on former Terrier blueliner Dick Lamby, a member of the 1976 U.S. Olympic team and BU's 1978 National Championship team.

Looking ahead
After their first three games in the Six Nations' tournament in Minsk, Belarus, the U.S. NTDP U18s have a perfect record and Terrier 2010 recruits Matt Nieto and Adam Clendening have been important contributors. Nieto has three points including shorthanded goals in wins against Sweden and Belarus while blueliner Clendening, with four assists, is tied for the team's scoring lead. This event is the team's final international tournament before the World U18s next month also in Minsk.
