Game Day: Dogfight at Matthews--BU vs. NU

Twelve days after their last game, the #4 Terriers open conference play with a home-and-home series with defending Hockey East champion Northeastern. Gametime tonight at ancient Matthews Arena is 7 p.m. for the contest that will be livestreamed free of charge (Link). Bernie Corbett and Mark Linehan will broadcast the game on the Terrier Sports Radio Network.

Since David Quinn became the Terriers’ head coach in 2013, BU has won seven of eight match-ups with their longtime crosstown rival, most recently in last February’s Beanpot semifinal.

The Huskies’ offense is led by Zach Alston-Reese (4G,6A), Adam Gaudette (5+5) and Dylan Sikura (2+9), who had a highlight-reel goal in NU’s loss to Vermont last Sunday. Sophomore goalie Ryan Ruck is back in the Huskies’ cage after a strong second half last season.

After five games, BU’s top scorers are freshmen Patrick Harper (2G,6A) and sophomores Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson (2+5) and Jordan Greenway (3+3).

The Daily Free Press reports that junior wing Nikolas Olsson will miss tonight’s game with an upper-body injury. Tonight's BU line-up:.

Kieffer Bellows - Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson - Bobo Carpenter
Patrick Harper - Clayton Keller - Jordan Greenway
Patrick Curry - Ryan Cloonan - Nick Roberto
Tommy Kelley - Johnny McDermott - Gabriel Chabot

Chad Krys - Charlie McAvoy
Brandon Hickey - Dante Fabbro
Doyle Somerby - John MacLeod
