Game Day: Terrier visit Lowell in regular-season finale

#10/11 Terriers conclude their shortened regular season with a 3 p.m. matinee against Lowell at the Tsongas Center. The game, which is the last Hockey East regular-season contest, will be live-streamed on Sports Live.

Following its split with Merrimack, BU is in second place in the Hockey East Power Index, trailing Boston College and just ahead of #3 UMass. Terriers need one point or more today to lock up the #2 seed. 

The River Hawks, currently in seventh place with a 7-8-0 record, are coming off a sweep of Vermont in Burlington.They trail Northeastern for the sixth and final first-round bye in the playoffs, which will pair #7 vs. #10 and #8 vs. #9 in that first round. Merrimack, which had its planned series with Vermont cancelled, will not participate in the playoffs.

Lowell’s offense is led by two forwards with 11 points apiece: Los Angeles draft pick sophomore Anders Lee and junior Reid Stefanson. (Carl Berglund, who also has 11, had season-ending knee surgery). Junior Lucas Condotta has nine points, while Matt Brown (8) scored in each of the Vermont games. Juniors Chase Blackmun and Seth Barton anchor a veteran defense. Freshman Henry Welsch (2.77 GAA, .895 sv%) has made most of the starts in goal for Lowell, although Owen Savory, a transfer from RPI, has made six starts.

Sophomore Jay O’Brien, with nine points in his last five games, is now tied with senior assistant captain David Farrance for the Terrier scoring lead with 15. Captain Logan Cockerill and freshman Luke Tuch each have a 5-4-9 line, while a trio of Terriers—Robert Mastrosimone, Alex Vlasic and Max Kaufman—each have eight points.

Freshman Drew Commesso (2.75 GAA, .923 sv%) returned to action last weekend and stopped 52 of 55 shots against Merrimack in a relief effort Friday and a start on Saturday.

Kaufman who left Saturday’s game with an injury was termed “day-to-day” by Coach Albie O’Connell, who indicated some line-juggling may be needed. He also noted that the team had “worked on faceoffs individually and collectively as a group over this week just to try to iron some stuff out now from a coverage standpoint.”
