Game Day—A pair with the Bears in Orono

The Terriers traveled to Orono yesterday for a weekend pair against the Black Bear. Despite seventh place Maine’s current 7-10-2 record in Hockey East, BU is well aware that the Bears are a dangerous team that shut out New Hampshire, 1-0, in Manchester, last week.

The Daily Free Press reports that freshman Corey Trivino returns to the lineup tonight, after missing two games and most of a third with a shoulder injury. Freshman Kevin Gilroy will replace Joe Pereira on the fourth line while Kieran Millan makes his ninth consecutive start in goal.

From USCHO, we have its weekly Hockey East Column while INCH’s Jeff Howe looks at the three HE Beanpot teams and where they stand in the conference race. College Hockey News, as always, provides a comparison of the teams and the recent history of the series. BU won the most recently meeting, 4-1 last month at Agganis Arena.

Senior wing Jason Lawrrence, who had the game-winner for BU in both Beanpot games, talks about the tournament with his hometown newspaper. Lawrence is second in the nation in power play goals (11) and tied for second in game-winners (5).

Looking back
Ex-Terrier All-American and current Ranger Chris Drury is the subject of an feature in a series on captains. The former Hobey Baker Award winner includes 1995-96 BU captain Jacques Joubert among those team captains he’s learned from.

John Curry, a Hobey Baker finalist at BU, earned AHL Player of the Week honors last week for his three wins in the Baby Pens’ net. Boomer Ewing, promoted from Wheeling, has made two starts for Wilkes Barre/Scranton, but has yet to hit the scoresheet.
