Game Day: BU vs. Providence at Agganis

Terriers return to conference play with a home-and-home pair against #3 Providence, beginning with tonight’s game at Agganis Arena. Puck drop is 7:30 p.m. The Friars are unbeaten in five starts, with a tie against Miami the only blemish on their record.

Providence is led by last year’s Rookie of the Year, goalie Jon Gillies, who currently leads the conference with a .950 save percentage and forwards Ross Mauermann and Mark Jankowski.

BU Coach David Quinn, looking to generate more offense, has adjusted his line-up, which according to the Daily Free Press will look like this:

Robbie Baillargeon – Danny O’Regan – Evan Rodrigues
Matt Lane – Cason Hohmann – Tommy Kelley
Brendan Collier – Nick Roberto – Sam Kurker
Mike Moran – Dillon Lawrence – Kevin Duane
Ahti Oksanen – Garrett Noonan
Patrick MacGregor – Matt Grzelcyk
Doyle Somerby – T.J. Ryan
Matt O’Connor

Last season BU defeated Providence twice, 4-2, and 3-2, with the third meeting resulting in a 3-3 tie.

Terriers are on the road tonight in New Hampshire at the Whittemore Center. BU won its Hockey East opener on Tuesday, beating Northeastern, and will look to continue its winning streak in the conference tonight in Durham and at home tomorrow against Vermont.

UNH is the last team to beat BU in a conference game, a 4-2 Terrier defeat last Nov. 9.

Senior goalie Kerrin Sperry was named Hockey East Goalie of the Month for October after posting a 1.70 GAA and a .946 save percentage to go along with a 4-0-1 record.  Sarah Lefort, Louise Warren and Samantha Sutherland lead BU with five points each.
