Game Day: Green Line Rivalry--Terriers host BC

#2/3 Terriers take on the #17 BC Eagles at Agganis Arena tonight as BU begins a critical weekend of Hockey East action. On Sunday, BU hosts UMass-Lowell, with whom the Terriers are now tied for first place in the conference. Tonight's game, the 267th in college hockey's greatest rivalry is set for a 7 p.m. puck-drop and will air live on NESN. The game is a sellout.

The Terriers, who defeated the Eagles on November 7 by a 5-3 score, are 3-0-3 since December 1, while BC is 5-0-2 over the same span.  BC's offense is led by sophomore Adam Gilmour with 17 points, junior Teddy Doherty (16) and sophomore Chris Calnan (15). Goalie Thatcher Demko has a 2.04 GAA and a .903 save percentage.

The Boston Hockey Blog reported that Terrier Coach David Quinn will keep intact the two top lines that played in the 6-1 win over Wisconsin: Jack Eichel, centering Danny O'Regan and Evan Rodrigues; and, Robbie Baillargeon, centering Cason Hohmann and Ahti Oksanen

Looking back

Nick Bonino scored a highlight-reel goal, which proved to be the game-winner, in Vancouver’s 4-0 blanking of the Flyers. The former Terrier standout forward appears to be emerging from a scoring slump with two goals in his past five games.
