Beanpot Game Day: Terriers vs. Huskies-UPDATED

BU faces off with Northeastern in the opening game of the 2013 Beanpot Tournament at TD Garden. The Terriers will look to avenge last month’s disappointing 6-5 loss to the Huskies. Puck drop is 5:00 p.m. with the game airing on NESN.

The Boston Hockey Blog reports that BU will tweak its top two lines, moving junior Matt Nieto to the first line with Cason Hohmann and Sahir Gill, while captain Wade Megan will skate with Danny O’Regan and Evan Rodrigues.


Of the eleven current Terriers with Beanpot experience,  Megan and junior Garrett Noonan each have scored three goals in previous tournaments.       

O’Regan’s father, Tom O’Regan, captain BU’s 1982-83 squad, was Beanpot MVP in 1982 when BU beat BC, 3-1, in the championship game.
