Pairing and game dates/times have been announced for the Hockey East quarterfinals. For BU, the opponent is a familiar one, as they play a best of three series with the same Northeastern Huskies they played last weekend. BU and NU will play Thursday, Friday and, if necessary, Sunday.

Matt Nieto, Max Nicastro and Corey Trivino made the Hockey East Online list of top performers for the past week. Trivino has scored ten points (3-7-10) in the past ten games. Friday night's win against Northeastern tied Kieran Millan with Scott Cashman for second most wins in program history. Millan is slated to make his 100th career start on Thursday when the Hockey East quarterfinals begin at Agganis Arena.

The Daily Free Press analyzed the problems that led to BU's loss to Northeastern in Saturday night's final regular season game.
