Game Day: BU hosts UMass

#2 Terriers return home for their second meeting of the season against Massachusetts. The teams opened the regular season in Amherst with BU authoring a convincing 8-1 win.  Puck drop tonight is 7:30 p.m. at Agganis Arena where the first 3,000 attendees will receive a Terrier scarf. An autograph session will follow the game.

The Minutemen have been playing their best hockey in recent weeks with a 4-3-1 record in their last eight games. Sophomore Frank Vatrano leads the team in goals (13) and points (22), while freshman Dennis Kravchanko is second in scoring (21 points) and tops in assists (13). Freshman d-man Brandon Montour, who recently became eligible, has ten points in ten games.

For BU, the top line of Jack Eichel, Danny O’Regan and Evan Rodrigues continues to produce. Rodrigues is on an eight-game point scoring streak (4G, 11A), Eichel is first in scoring in Hockey East—and second in the nation—with 36 points. O’Regan is tied for the conference lead in goals with 16.

 Looking back

Former Terrier captain and All-American Kevin Shattenkirk celebrated his 26th birthday by scoring the shoot-out game-winner (4:40 of video) in the Blues’ 5-4 win against Nashville. Shattenkirk also contributed an assist as did Colin Wilson for the Predators. The shootout goal came against a former Hockey East opponent, UMass Lowell product Carter Hutton.

Former BU MVP Alex Chiasson scored his 8th goal of the season in Ottawa’s 6-3 loss to the Dallas Stars (his previous team).
