Terriers Trip To Orono

Alex Chiasson slips a pass through
the legs of Maine's Joey Diamond
BU will travail to the Maine Black Bears tonight to kick off a weekend series at Alfond Arena. For both teams this is a pivotal weekend. Maine and BU could not be closer right now. Just one points separates them in the Hockey East Standings and Maine is only point slot higher then the Terriers  in the Pair Wise, at 17.

If BU were to sweep this weekend or even get three points, they would be in the drivers seat for home ice in the conference playoffs. After this weekend, BU plays the bottom half of the league, Lowell followed by a trip over to Amherst to play UMass between the Beanpot games and then two game series with Providence, Vermont, and Northeastern to close out the regular season.

Players to watch 
  • Gustav Nyquist, Maine Forward. Nyquist this season leads his team in points at 28 but only has six goals on the year. Last year he had 30+ goals and was a Hoby Hat trick finalist. 
  • Spencer Abbott, Maine Forward. Abbott is second on the team in overall points, 26 and goals with 12.  
The Last Time They Met..

was back in November. After being down in the third period, BU came back and tied the Black Bears 2-2 at Agganis Arena. Last Year the Terrier fell 3-2 at Alfond Arena
