Inside BU Hockey: Quinn, Moran, Zancanaro; Green Line rivalry up next

Episode 14 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Head Coach David Quinn, junior center Mike Moran and former Terrier co-captain Brad Zancanaro. Moran, a three-sports standout at Taft before spending the 2011-12 season with the BCHL Victoria Grizzlies, has anchored BU’s fourth line this season and has the best face-off win percentage of the four regular centers (.561). He scored five goals last season and has two thus far this year. 

Zancanaro, a 90-point scorer in his four seasons as a Terrier, helped lead BU to the 2006 Hockey East Championship, centering the Terriers top line with co-captain David Van der Gulik and John Laliberte.  In December 2004 he scored the game-winner (video) against BC to earn Coach Jack Parker his 700th win.  A month later, he scored BU’s first-ever goal (video) at Agganis Arena as the Terriers opened their new home with a 2-1 win against Minnesota.

Junior goalie Matt O'Connor was interviewed tonight on the Pipeline Show with Dean Millard and Guy Flaming., discussing his current success leading to interest from half a dozen NHL teams, including Edmonton Oilers GM Craig MacTavish, and how college hockey has been the right path for him.

#2/3 Terriers return to conference play this weekend with a pair of critical games: #17 Boston College on Friday night and #6 UMass-Lowell Sunday afternoon. Sunday's game was moved up from an evening contest to avoid a conflict with the Patriots-Colts football game. Friday's game at 7 p.m. airs on NESN, while the Sunday 2 p.m. matinee can be watched on Terrier TV.  Both games also air on the Terrier Sports Radio Network.

Looking ahead
2017 recruit David Farrance has been selected to play in the USPHL 16U All-Star game next Monday at Merrimack’s Lawlor Arena. The 5-11, left-shot defenseman from Victor, N.Y., is fourth in the league in scoring and leads the first-place Syracuse Stars in scoring with a 19-20-39 scoring line in 20 games.

Looking back

Former BU co-captain John McCarthy has been loaned by the St. Louis Blues to the Worcester Sharks, the AHL affiliate of the San Jose Sharks. McCarthy had spent parts of the past five seasons with Worcester, as well as playing 87 games with San Jose.
