Game Day: Terriers visit Friars

#11 Terriers travel south on Rt. 95 to take on top-rated Providence College at Schneider Arena in the teams’ first meetings since last April’s NCAA title game. Puck drop is at 6 p.m. as the contest is part of the American Sports Network’s Friday Night College Hockey double-header.

The game will air in New England on NESN and in Canada on TSN2. Other locations that will air the ASN broadcast are listed here.  In addition, for Terrier fans in the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut market, the game will be rebroadcast on Sunday on SportsNet New York (SNY) at 7:30 p.m.

Like the Terriers, the undefeated Friars are getting strong offensive numbers from the defense. Sophomore  blueliner Jake Walman leads the team with 12 points (7G, 5A), while seniors Mark Jankowski and Trevor Mingoria each have 10 points. Junior Nick Ellis has taken over the goaltending reins from departed Jon Gillies and has a 2.18 GAA.

BU has won its last three games—an OT win over Denver and a sweep of Northeastern—sparked by the return of Captain Matt Grzelcyk, four goals from senior Ahti Oksanen and six points from leading scorer, senior assistant captain Danny O’Regan (photo), who now has 11 points (2G, 9A).  Sophomore goalie Connor LaCouvee, who backboned all three wins, will get the start again tonight. Check back for the full BU line-up.
