Battle of Comm Ave (Part Two)

For the second time this year BU and BC will face off, this time at the Heights. Boston College took the first meeting 5-1 in a game where the score didn't accurately depict how close the game really was.

BU comes into the game banged up. They will be with out injured forwards Jake Moscatel and Evan Rodrigues. Worst of all, Matt Grzelyk is done for the year after suffering a separated shoulder injury in practice. BU will have just 16 skaters dressed for the game tonight.

Sean Maguire is in goal.

Scouting the Eagles
BC comes into this game with a 14-4-3 record and in first place in the Hockey East standings. John Gaudreau not only leads Boston College in points, but the entire nation. The junior from Carneys Point, New Jersey has 40 points (19g, 21a) in just 21 games played. Not too far behind is senior Kevin Hayes; in 21 games, Hayes has 13 goals and 22 assists for 35 points. BC's best defenseman is probably Michael Matheson who has notched 13 points from the blue line.

In goal BC will start junior Brian Billett. Billett is 1-0-0 in his BU-BC rivalry career with his lone start coming in 2012. This year he has a 10-3-1 record in 13 games, and in that time has posted a .925 save percentage and a 2.27 goals against average.
