Game Day: Terriers visit Quinnipiac

#2 BU is in Hamden, Connecticut today to take on #14 Quinnipiac in the third-ever meeting between the Terriers and Bobcats. Puck drop for the afternoon contest is at 2 p.m. with a livestream available on ESPN3.

Last season, BU blanked Quinnipiac, 3-0, on goals by Jordan Greenway, Bobo Carpenter and Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson. Two seasons ago BU came away with a 4-1 win.  Patrick Harper, who had two goals and an assist again Union last week, is the Terriers’ top returning scorer with (37) points, followed by Carpenter (32) and Greenway (31)

The Bobcats, whose line-up includes two transfers from BU, defenseman Brandon Fortunato and forward Kevin Duane, opened their regular season on Friday with a 1-1 overtime tie at Boston College. Alex Whelan scored Quinnipiac’s goal that was matched by the Eagles late in the third period. Goalie Andrew Shortridge stopped 25 BC shots.

Top returning scorers for QU are forwards Landon Smith (29 points) and Craig Martin (27) and defenseman Chase Priskie (26), a Washington draft pick. Shortridge had a 13-7 record last season with a 2.08 GAA and a .920 save percentage.
