Game Day: Terriers host the Catamounts
Following four out-of-conference games, BU returns to Hockey East action with a two-game home series with Vermont. Tonight’s game begins at 7:30 p.m. and will be streamed on TerrierTV (subscribers). The teams meet again Saturday in a 4 p.m. start.
The Boston Hockey Blog reports that Sean Maguire will start tonight’s game in goal, following his 3-0 shutout of Bentley last week. Captain Matt Grzelcyk has not been cleared to play so the defense pairings should remain the same as in the past two games. While the second and third lines provided the goals at Madison Square Garden, BU’s offense continues to be led by the first line of seniors Danny O’Regan (4-13-17) and Ahti Oksanen (7-6-13) and freshman Jakob Forsback Karlsson (photo, 4-9-13).
A look at the Catamounts scoring leaders reveals some familiar names. Former Terrier Alex Privitera is second in scoring with seven points, one point ahead of his brother Jarrid and two ahead of Liam Coughlin, both of whom were one-time BU recruits. Junior Mario Puskarich tops the list with 12 points.
Last season, the Terriers visited Burlington and swept the two games, 4-2 and 2-1 on a Jack Eichel overtime goal.
