Game Day: Battle of Comm Ave renewed

College hockey's biggest rivalry takes center stage tonight as #9 BU begins a home-and-home series with top-ranked BC. Tonight's home game at Agganis and tomorrow night's game at Conte Forum, both 7:30 starts, will air nationally on NBC Sports Network with Doc Emrick handling play-by-play. 

Tonight's game is the 260th in a rivalry now in its 10th decade. BU leads the overall series 127-115-117. (See game notes)

Terriers will look to build on last week's shutout of St. Lawrence and gain ground on the Eagles in the Hockey East standings. Three weekends ago, BC topped BU, 4-2, with defensemen Matt Grzelcyk and Alexx Privitera netting goals. With BC Coach Jerry York two wins away from becoming the all-time NCAA leader, the Terriers also will be out to delay that milestone and end BC's 10 game winning streak.

Sophomore Cason Hohmann is BU leading scorer with 12 points, while senior captain Wade Megan is top goal-scorer with 7. BU's lineup for tonight:

Nominations have begun for the BNY Mellow Wealth Management Hockey Humanitarian Award
The award grew out of a conversation in 1995 between fathers sitting in Walter Brown Arena watching a squirt hockey practice led by BU All-American goalie JP McKersie, while he was recovering from a life-threatening accident. In February of 1996, McKersie became the first Hockey Humanitarian Award winner. History, Nomination page
