Game Day-- BU vs. BC at Frozen Fenway

Go outside and play

We're just a few hours away from the Terriers' first outdoor hockey game since an 8-4 victory over Holy Cross at MIT Rink, 54 years ago yesterday. The SunLife Frozen Fenway game matching BU and BC adds a stunning new chapter to college sports greatest rivalry. But it's not the first time the teams have faced off outdoors. Ninety years ago next month, they played at the Eagles' University Rink, with the host routing the visitors, 9-0.

Altogether, BU has played 35 outdoor games, coming away on top 20 times, losing 12 times, with three ties.

A few notes before listing all the pre-game coverage and in-game blog information.
  • Both teams will be wearing special commemorative jerseys. BC's can be seen on the Eagles' Web site. BU's will remain under wraps until gametime. We'll try to get a sneak peak if possible.

  • In addition to the teams' own radio broadcasts, WEEI-AM in Boston will air the game.
  • The women's matchup between Northeastern and New Hampshire begins at 4:00 p.m., also on NESN and NHL Network.

Looking back
John McCarthy, co-captain of last season’s national championship team has been recalled from Worcester to the San Jose Sharks. McCarthy has a 6-12-18 line—and a team-leading +14— in 36 AHL games. McCarthy is the fourth member of the Terrier’s 2008-09 squad to reach the NHL this season, joining Matt Gilroy, Colin Wilson and Brandon Yip.

Wilson, now rehabbing with the AHL Milwaukee, made a slick pass to set up the Admirals first goal in last night’s 3-2 win against San Antonio. The Rampage later tied the score at twp apiece on a slapper from the high slot by former BU captain Sean Sullivan. It was the sixth goal of the season for Sullivan, who was briefly recalled by Phoenix this season and has been named to the Planet USA squad for the AHL All-Star game (TV outlets).
