Photos from the first half of the season
Right from the start of the season the Terriers have struggled, failing to score timely goals and play consistent defense. The goaltending is a whole different story in its self. BU at the holiday break is in 9th place in Hockey East. At this point two years go in 2007 the Terriers had the exact same recored as the current Dogs do. After the brake the Terrier turned it up and starting February first Bu only lost three game the rest of the season. All I'm saying is that the season is not totally lost.
One surprise this season has bean Zach Cohen who scored his team leading sixth goal in Friday night's 5-3 lost to RPI. Before the start of last season, Cohen was almost cut from the team. But thanks to then captain Matt Gilroy who convinced head coach jack parker to keep him on the team.
