Rankings, recognition and more

Despite losses by last week’s #1 ranked Minnesota and #2 ranked North Dakota, Terriers remained in the third spot in the USCHO D1 poll. Undefeated (10-0) Michigan Tech vaulted to the top, while the (team formerly known as the Sioux) remained second.  However, in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll, BU is in the #2 slot behind MTU, while SB Nation’s Power Rankings for this week have the Terriers edging the Huskies for the top ranking.

Jack Eichel (photo), who is second in Division 1 in points per game (1.88)  and leads in plus/minus (+15), and Danny O’Regan, who scored the game-winning goal vs. Maine—on a shorthander—and added an assist, made the Hockey East Weekly Top Performers list.

National statistics: Eight games into the season, BU is tied for the third best winning percentage (.812), has the sixth most goals-per-game (3.62) and the seventh least goals against (1.75).

Looking ahead
2015 recruit Jordan Greenway scored a goal and added an assist in the NTDP U18s’ 9-3 rout of Muskegon. The 6-5, 222 lb. left wing has 14 points in 19 games.

2017 recruit David Farrance scored his 13th goal in the Syracuse Stars 16Us’ 6-1 win over the Islanders Hockey Club. Farrance leads the undefeated Stars with a 13-12-25 line in 13 games.

Women’s Team
Terriers completed a weekend sweep of Connecticut with a 4-2 win, paced by two first period goals from senior captain, Marie-Philip Poulin (photo). The two-time Olympic gold medalist was playing her first home game of the season, having missed several games while playing for the Canadian National Team.

BU also received a first-period goal from sophomore Sarah Steele—her first collegiate goal—helping the Terriers to a 3-1 lead after 20 minutes. Early in the second, freshman Victoria Bach scored her seventh goal—with one in each of the last four games—on a breakaway to extend the lead to 4-1.

Victoria Hanson stopped 14 shots for her fifth win of the season as BU outshot the Huskies by  a 30-16 margin.
