BU will continue on their toughest stretch of the season as they get set to rap up the Hockey East season series with Boston College. This tough stretch started way back on 11/11/11, when BU lost 3-2 in overtime to unbeaten Merrimack. Since then BU has not lost, beating BC 5-0 two days later and then rolling past both UNH and Vermont the weekend before Thanksgiving. Then there was the Cornell game at Madison Square Garden. Yeah. By now you should know that BU won 2-1 in overtime.
The road does not get any easier after this upcoming weekend, either. Thursday the 8th, BU will bus up to Durham and finish up the season series with New Hampshire and that Sunday, BU will play their final game before the holiday break at Maine. And, oh yeah, the Terriers first game back is in South Bend Indiana, home to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
Right now BU is 4-1-0 over the unyielding grind of games and two more W's this weekend would look mighty nice on the schedule card.
Full weekend preview coming sometime tomorrow.
