Former Terrier injured in team bus accident

Ex-Terrier Ryan Weston, a 2008 graduate, was one of several Albany River Rats injured when their team bus flipped on the Mass Turnpike early Thursday morning following an AHL game against Lowell. According to his father, Ryan "suffered separated shoulders, cuts, bumps and bruises and was released from the hospital."

While the Terriers keep their focus on this weekend's critical home-and-home series with first-place Northeastern, BU fans have the luxury of diverting themselves with down-the-road matters like where BU will play in the NCAA quarterfinals and whether one of the Terriers will be a Hobey Baker Award finalist or winner.

We'll start with College Hockey News' Adam Wodon who provides a primer on NCAA bracket ABCs. BU is currently the leader in the Pairwise and RPI rankings and according to Wodon,
"The Terriers' lead over the next few teams is so significant, it would take a major tanking to miss out on the No. 1 overall seed. The bigger question for the Terriers is, where will they wind up? Both eastern regionals are fairly close -- Manchester, N.H., and Bridgeport, Conn., though Manchester is significantly closer, relatively speaking." More

The New Brittain, Conn., Herald talks with Nick Bonino and his Farmington High School coach about the path that led him to public school and prep championships and then to BU and the Beanpot MVP Award.

On INCH's Weekly podcast, the Web site's editors discuss college hockey's top ranked programs, beginning with BU.

Well-traveled Carl Corazzini, a former All-American forward and captain of the 2000-01 Terriers, is on the move again, traded from AHL Springfield to Peoria. Corazzini also has made 19 NHL starts with the Bruins and Blackhawks.
