Game Day: Terriers vs. Friars at Agganis

The #2/3 Terriers will be seeking to remain in first place in Hockey East and also avenge a 5-3 loss in their season-opener when they begin a home-and-home series with Providence College tonight at Agganis Arena. The game, which starts at 7:30 p.m., will be broadcast live by NESN.

Following last weekend’s two come-from-behind wins, BU is keeping its lineup virtually unchanged. Freshman Evan Rodrigues (photo), who scored his first collegiate goal in the 4-3 win against Northeastern, will again skate on right wing with Matt Nieto and Sahir Gill.

Terrier line-up:
Wade Megan – Chris Connolly – Alex Chiasson
Matt Nieto – Sahir Gill – Evan Rodrigues
Justin Courtnall РCason Hohmann РYasin Ciss̩
Ross Gaudet – Ben Rosen – Ryan Santana
Sean Escobedo – Adam Clendening
Garrett Noonan – Patrick MacGregor
Max Nicastro – Alexx Privitera
Kieran Millan

The Friars, following a fast start under new coach Nate Leaman, have a 9-9-2 record overall and are 3-6-1 in the past ten games. Alex Beaudry, always a challenge for BU, is expected to start in goal for Providence.

BU and Providence are the national co-leaders in shorthanded goals with 8.

Terrier head coach Jack Parker enters the weekend with 399 Hockey East victories on his resume.

oh I read on Host Pay Per Head website that that game was going to be suspended because there were somethings in the administration of the stadium that were not good, but no one knew about it because it was a secret
