Game Day—BU at UNH

Terriers are on the road tonight at the Whittemore Centre in Durham to take on the University of New Hampshire. Wildcats are ranked #6 in the USCHO poll and are undefeated in their past 8 games (5-0-3). Last weekend, UNH took three of four points from UMass.

BU’s lineup is expected to have as its top line Chris Connolly, Corey Trivino and Alex Chiasson, with an all freshman unit, Matt Nieto, Charlie Coyle and Sahir Gill, will follow them. Wade Megan centers for Joe Pereira and Ross Gaudet on the third line, while Ben Rosen makes his second start between Andrew Glass and Ryan Santana. Junior Kieran Millan will be in goal tonight; Grant Rollheiser gets the start Saturday at Agganis Arena.
BU has the best record at the Whittemore Center of any UNH opponent: 9-7-5.

Wildcats coach Dick Umile is in his 21st season at the helm of his alma mater and has compiled a 467-235-81 (.648) record.

Looking back
Former Terrier captain and Hobey Baker Award finalist Jay Pandolfo has signed a professional tryout agreement with the AHL Springfield Falcons. Pandolfo has played 819 NHL games, all the New Jersey Devils with whom he won Stanley Cups in 2000 and 2003. In 1995-96, he led the Terriers to the Frozen Four, scoring 38 goals and 29 assists.

The Worcester Telegram talks with former BU captain Sean Sullivan who signed as a free agent this summer with the Sharks. Now playing for their Worcester/AHL affiliate, he see a path to reach the NHL.

Former Terrier co-captain Matt Gilroy probably won't have time to exchange pleasantries with ex-BU teammates Kevin Shattenkirk and Brandon Yip when the Rangers play the Avalanche tonight.
