BU-Northeastern game recaps

We have recaps and other coverage of last night’s 1-1 tie between BU and Northeastern:, USCHO, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, detailed boxscore and Brian Kelley’s in-game blog.

►BU played without senior Chris Higgins, who injured a hand on Friday night and sophomore Joe Pereira who had wisdom tooth problems. Victor Saponari made his first start since. January 16.

►Gilroy became the 8th Terrier to score a shorthanded goal this season, and the third defenseman, joining David Warsofsky and Kevin Shattenkirk.

►Since Thanksgiving, the Terriers are 18-1-4. In their current 12 game unbeaten streak (9-0-3), BU has yield just 20 goals, an average of 1.66 gpg.

USCHO offers a feature on the improbable path that led walk-on Gilroy to All-American status at BU.

Looking back

29 years ago today, four ex-Terriers led the way in hockey's greatest upset, the 1980 U.S. Olympic team's 4-3 win over the Soviet Union in Lake Placid. We'll have a separate post about the "Miracle on Ice" later today.
