Looking back
Dave Van der Gulik was recalled from Lake Erie by Colorado and had an assist in last night's Avs' 4-2 loss to Nashville.

Women’s team
Reversing the result of last year’s NCAA quarterfinal matchup, BU defeated Mercyhurst, 4-2, at Walter Brown Arena, punching its ticket to the Frozen Four in Erie, Pennsylvania next weekend.

Sophomore Jill Cardella’s deflect of a Tara Watchorn slapper midway through the third period break a 2-2 tie and proved the game winner. BU had two previous leads when it received goals in the first period from Jenn Wakefield (31st) and Marie-Philip Poulin (23rd) in the second, but each time the Lakers answered with a goal. Wakefield’s empty netter sealed the win. Goalie Kerrin Sperry turned aside 30 shots, matching her career high.

Next up for the third seed Terriers is their first-ever game against the second-seeded Big Red of Cornell. BC meets top ranked Wisconsin in the other semifinal.
