Game Day: Terriers visit the Heights

BU and BC resume their home-and-home with a nationally televised game at Conte Forum. ASN and NESN will air the game with puck drop set for 7 p.m. ET.

Note: if you visited the site yesterday and saw a link for an ASN Live Stream, please be aware that no stream will be available tonight.

After Friday night’s 2-1 victory, the Terriers are looking to complete their first sweep of a home-and-home series with the Eagles since the 2001-02 season.  Currently tied with New Hampshire for fourth in Hockey East, BU—with two games in hand vs. first-place BC—has an opportunity to tighten up the race.

Freshman Clayton Keller brings a five-game scoring streak (3-5-8) into the game, while sophomore Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson has eight points (6G, 2A) over the last four games.
