Game Day: BU vs. Maine at Alfond



Terriers are on the road in Maine to take on the Black Bears. Under the new Hockey East schedule, this will be BU's only visit to Alfond Arena, where the team worked out this morning, during the regular season.

The game will air on Fox College Sports Atlantic at 7 p.m. Find the station on your cable or satellite system here.

Maine (4-4-1) is led by senior Mark Anthoine (5-2-7) and freshman Cam Brown (1-6-7). Senior goalie Martin Oulette has a 2.31 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

Sean Maguire, who will start for BU, has a .941 save percentage—eight best nationally— and a 2.03 GAA, but a lack of offense has resulted in just one win in his four previous starts. Coach David Quinn has shuffled his lines to jump start the offense. The Daily Free Press reports that Cason Hohmann will join Danny O’Regan and Matt Lane, while freshman Robbie Baillargeon moves to his natural position, center, between Evan Rodrigues and Nick Roberto. Sam Kurker centers the third line with Tommy Kelley and TJ Ryan on the wings. Here's the full line-up:


Lane-O’Regan-Hohmann
Rodrigues-Baillargeon-Roberto
Kelley-Kurker-Ryan
Moran-Lawrence-Duane
Oksanen-Noonan
Grzelcyk-MacGregor
Somerby-MacAfee

John Buccigross of ESPN.com visited Coach David Quinn’s office to talk about college hockey’s top rivalries, including BU-BC.

Looking ahead
Five BU recruits are listed on the NHL Central Scouting’s November players to watch list for the 2014 draft:  Johnathan MacLeod, Chase Phelps, JJ Piccinich, Maxim Letunov and Bobo Carpenter. Jack Eichel, a late ‘96 birthdate, isn’t draft eligible ‘til 2015.

Thanks to the blog reader who pointed out that 2015 recruit Charles McAvoy scored his first goal of the season in the NTDP U17s 8-2 win over Switzerland last week in the Four Nations Tournament in Slovakia. The blueliner from Long Beach, N.Y., also added an assist.

Looking back
Charlie Coyle stole the puck and then his centering pass of the skates of Zach Parise and Phil Kessel eluded Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier for the tying goal. The Wild then eeked out a 2-1 shootout win.

Sahir Gill’s first goal as a professional was all that ECHL Wheeling needed in a 1-0 blanking of Elmira. The Nailers are coached by former Terrier standout and U.S. Olympian Clark Donatelli.

Women’s Team
