Game Day--Terriers vs. Huskies

Riding a nine-game (7-0-2) conference unbeaten streak, BU enters the final weekend of the regular season needing one point to secure home ice and with an upside possibility of finishing second. The latter scenario would require BU to sweep Northeastern while either BC or UNH sweeps the other.

Tonight’s game, a 7 p.m. start, against the Huskies is at Matthews Arena, where the home team also has been on a hot streak in conference play with a 6-3-4 record since second semester began. Senior Wayne MacLeod, who is having an all-star type season with an 18-19-37 scoring line, leads the Huntington Hounds.

BU will again be without the services of assistant captain David Warsosky, who is recovering from a concussion. He’s considered doubtful for tomorrow’s Senior Night game at Agganis Arena as well, but is expected to return for the playoffs.

In the teams’ only previous matchup this season, BU took a 5-4 decision in December on Alex Chiasson’s goal with less the four minutes in regulation. Freshmen Matt Nieto and Charlie Coyle (photo) also scored in that game.

USCHO’s Hockey East columnist Jim Connelly has made his all-star and awards selections. Warsofsky was named a first-team conference all-star, while Coyle and Adam Clendening are on the all-rookie team, with Coyle adding Rookie of the Year honors.

Looking back

Terrier Head Coach Jack Parker revealed to USCHO's Scott Weighart his top ten opposing players during his 38-year tenure at BU for the Scarlet Daily Digest. Not surprisingly, four of the ten played for the team "up the block."
