Game Day: BU visits New Hampshire--updated

Terriers are on the road this weekend with a game at New Hampshire tonight—the final regular season meeting between the two teams—and the first meeting of the year with Maine, which takes place in Orono on Saturday night.

BU has a 5-2 record in its past seven games and sits in third place in Hockey East. After a seven-game unbeaten streak, the Wildcats have been slumping of late, losing four of the past five games including being swept last weekend by UMass-Lowell.

BU won the first two meetings with UNH this season, a 5-0 shutout in the season opener and a 4-1 win last month—both games at Agganis Arena.

The Wildcats’ top guns, both with 19 points, are senior Stevie Moses (11g, 8a) and sophomore Nick Sorkin (5g, 14a). Freshman Casey DeSmith is expected to get the start in goal for UNH.

WBIN-TV will televise Thursday's 7 p.m. contest in a UNH-produced broadcast. In the Boston area, WBIN is Channel 18 (811 in HD) on Comcast, Channel 6 (506 in HD) on Verizon Fios and 50 on DirecTV.
