Top spot!

The Terriers’ sixth win of the season, combined with losses by Colorado College and Boston College, has vaulted BU to the top of both national polls. The BU athletics Web site release notes that “BU last held the top billing in the country in the final poll before the 2006 NCAA tournament.” That poll followed BU’s 2-1 overtime win over Boston College in the Hockey East championship game.

Hockey East’s weekly news release reported that Colin Wilson earned RBK Player of the Week honors for his four-point effort against Lowell. Kevin Shattenkirk and Jason Lawrence previously won the award this season.

In the NHL, a pair of 1998 BU All-Americans found the back of the net. Tom Poti’s second goal of the season got Washington on the board early in a 4-2 win over Tampa. Chris Drury knocked in the tying goal with just one hand for the Rangers, who lost in a shootout to Edmonton, 3-2.
