Game day--Terriers in Providence

Terriers begin a home-and-home series with Providence tonight at Schneider Arena. BU’s last game with Providence in January, a 3-1 Friars’ win, was one of the few bumps in the road for the BU this semester. The Friars have experienced a scoring drought in recent games, but have one of the conference’s top goalies in Alex Beaudry.

Game time is 7 p.m. The only video available is for-pay through Providence College All-Access

Olympic Update
Game-winning goal scored throughout his college (video) and NHL career – 47 in regular season games and 17 in the Stanley Cup playoffs— are part of the reason Sports Illustrated calls Chris Drury (photo) “The Winner”. Now in his third Olympic appearance, he scored his first goal for Team USA and, naturally, it was a game-winner, too. Drury, BU’s first Hobey Baker Award winner, banged home the rebound of a David Backes shot to put the U.S. ahead 2-0, en route to a 6-1 win against Norway.

Looking ahead
CollegeHockey247, which ranked Matt Nieto third among 2010 recruits, has now issued its list of the top 50 recruits for next season. BU has four recruits on the list. Besides Nieto: Charlie Coyle-15th, Adam Clendening-22nd and Sahir Gill-39th. Only Yasin Cisse, among BU 2010 recruits is not on the list and he's out for the year with a foot injury. Notre Dame led the way with seven recruits out of the 50 listed.
