Terriers conclude their two-game road trip and first semester schedule with a visit to Alfond Arena to play Maine. The Black Bears have a 6-6-2 record and sit in fifth place in Hockey East, but have rebounded from a four-game skid to go 3-0-1 in their past four games. Seniors Spencer Abbott and Brian Flynn lead Maine with 23 and 21 points respectively.

BU is tied for second in Hockey East with Merrimack, although the Warriors have two games in hand. The Terriers have a 6-1-2 record in their past nine visits to Orono. Senior Chris Connolly, the newest member of BU’s 100-point club, has 11 points (6g, 5a) in 13 career games against the Black Bears.

Terriers will again be without leading scorer Matt Nieto (16 pts.), who injured a shoulder earlier this week in practice. Senior Corey Trivino, one point behind at 15, brings a x-game goal-scoring streak into the game. He’s also tied for the conference goal-scoring lead with 10,
