Game Day: BU hosts Northeastern; Women thump BC

Terriers will look to build off Tuesday’s win vs. Harvard as they close out first semester against #8/12 Northeastern. Puck drop at Agganis Arena is at 7 p.m. for the contest that will be live-streamed on CBS All-Access. The annual Teddy Bear Toss will take place following the second period and there will be a skate for students following the game.

The teams played four times last season with BU posting a win and a tie in a conference regular-season home-and-home. NU recorded 2-1 overtime wins in both the Beanpot semifinal and the Hockey East tournament semifinal.

The Huskies, who last weekend won the Friendship Four championship in Northern Ireland, are in first place in Hockey East. Their offense is led by sophomore Tyler Madden (12-10-22), who was a linemate of BU's Patrick Harper and Jamie Armstrong in their prep days at Avon Old Farms. Junior Zach Solow and senior Ryan Shea each have 15 points. Graduate transfer (from Merrimack) Craig Pantano has been strong in goal with a 1.97 GAA and a .927 save percentage.

Junior David Farrance and senior Patrick Curry are BU’s top goal scorers with 10 each. Farrance (21), Harper (19), Curry (16) and Freshman Trevor Zegras (14) are the top point scorers. Grad transfer Sam Tucker (2.19 GAA, .928 save percentage), has made 13 consecutive starts in goal.

Women’s Team 
#9 Terriers dominated #8 Boston College, dealing their Green Line rivals a 6-0 defeat at Walter Brown Arena. Four Terriers had two-point nights, led by sophomore Mackenna Parker with two goals. Senior Sammy Davis, junior Jesse Compher and sophomore Courtney Correia each contributed a goal and an assist.

Sophomore Emma Wuthrich started the scoring converting the rebound of a Nadia Mattivi shot seven minutes into the first period. Parker’s redirect doubled the score late in the period.

In the middle period, Davis scored shorthanded, Compher connected on a power play and Correia followed with a unassisted tally. Parker scored a third-period goal on the rush for the 6-0 final.

Junior Corrine Schroeder authored another standout performance in goal, stopping all 21 Eagle shots for her second shutout of the season and lowering her GAA to 1.42 and increase her save percentage to .948.

Compher’s brother, J.T., a Colorado Avalanche forward, was in the WBA crowd as the Avs are in Boston to play the Bruins tomorrow.

The teams complete the home-and-home series at BC Conte Forum today at 1:30 p.m.
