Game Day Preview: RPI @ BU

Tonight the Terriers will take on the Engineers of Rensselaer Pollytech. The Terrier will look to bounce back from 4-l lose at the hands of arch rival Boston College.

Scouting the Engineers
On the season RPI is 8-9-1. But in their last three games Rensselaer is 0-3 with loses over Cornell, Colgate, and Union. From the looks of it RPI's most impressive was back on October 10 When they beat New Hampshire 3-1 on home ice.

The last time they met...
was in the 2009 Denver Cup. The Terriers won the game by a score of 6-2. The game was close until the third when the Terriers scored three goals to salt the game away. With that win the Terriers  moved on the the Denver Cup championship game where they downed host Denver to claim the Denver Cup.

2010 Terrier recruit Yasin Cisse who had bead flying high with the Des Moines Bucs suffered severed tendon tare on hi right ankle. According to U.S. Hockey Report Cisse is expected to miss the rest of the season with the Bucs. This could move his spot on the Terriers next season back. we will wait and see.
