Game Day: BU vs Vermont--UPDATED

As the Hockey East regular season winds down, Terriers are on the road for a pair of games against Vermont in Burlington. Tonight’s game will be broadcast nationally on NBC Sports Network with puck drop at 7:30 p.m. ET

BU is currently in third place in Hockey East, but remains in the hunt for the top spot in the conference as they trail BC by just two points.

Senior goaltender Grant Rollheiser (photo) gets the start tonight as Kieran Millan takes a night off. In addition, freshman Alexx Privitera returns to the lineup after missing X weeks with a fractured wrist. He’ll take the place of suspended blueliner Max Nicastro (see news below).

BU has convened a special task force to examine the program's culture in the wake of the Nicastro arrest and suspension.
