Gameday—The Cats came back

BU enters a crucial weekend, if it is to get back into the conference race, with four points on the line in two home games. First up is Vermont, BU’s opponent in last year’s Frozen Four semifinal. A year ago, the Catamounts also became first team in 16 years to sweep at weekend series at BU.

Saturday night, BU and BC continue their rivalry with the 247th renewal of The Battle of Comm. Ave . It’ll be the first of four games with Eagles this season including the Jan. 8 outdoor tilt at Fenway Park.
With the exception of defenseman Ryan Ruikka, the Terriers are at full strength. Coach Jack Parker is expected to keep freshman Alex Chiasson on the Terriers’ top line with Chris Connolly and Nick Bonino, a move he had made during last weekend’s tie with Cornell.

Earlier this week, the Hockey East coaches held a media teleconference. For Jack Parker's comments click for pdf or audio. More coaches' comments.

Sophomore David Warsofsky (photo), who earlier in the week made Hockey East’s top performers list for his efforts against Harvard and Cornell and was invited to U.S. Junior National team camp, made The Hockey News’ Hot List.

Looking back
Carl Corazzini, captain of the 200-01 Terriers, who began the season with the AHL Peoria Riverman, has been added to the roster of the Pelicans in the Finnish SM league.

Mike Grier scored a goal and an assist in the Sabres' 6-2 thrashing of Montreal last night.

2006-07 captain Sean Sullivan had been missing the scoresheet after Phoenix returned him to the AHL San Antonio but last night Sully registered three assists in the Rampage’s 6-3 win over Houston.
