Watching BU the last few weeks has reminded me a bit of how the Patriots season went. Coming out of the break the teams was on fire. They had just dropped Quinnipiac in Hamdon and came back to beat Harvard in stunning fashion. BU finally got everyone back from injury and the goaltending woes of this first semester were a distant memory. Then, just like the Pats, the injury bug came back. Sean Maguire broke his finger and Conor LaCouvee took over the cage this weekend.
After going pointless in his last three games, Danny O'Regan exploded for a four goal weekend. He notched all three of BU's goals on Friday night and added another one on Saturday. He now has 14 goals and 22 assists for a team leading 36 points.
Danny O'Regan: “I was having trouble finding the net the last couple of weeks, so it was nice to get some chances on net and have a few go in for me. It was a good weekend for me, but I wish we got four points instead of three"
Connor LaCouvee: “It kind of sucked for a good portion of three weeks or so, but then I was just, ‘Well, there’s no sense being a moody little kid; I might as well just work hard and support the team.’ ‘Mags’ is playing unreal, so I keep supporting him. You never want to come in and play when someone’s injured, but it was really nice to come in and get a couple of games there. I was shaky for the first bit, but it was awesome that we got three points — would’ve liked to get the fourth.”
Dave Quinn: “There was a lot I liked about our game tonight but obviously the result isn’t what we wanted. Obviously i thought we possessed the puck well, got pucks to the net, just weren’t able to capitalize and our goals we had to earn.”
At The Polls
BU stayed pat in the 9th slot in the USCHO rankings. In fact, there was no change to the top six teams either. Quinnipiac 1, BC 2, St. Cloud 3, North Dakota 4, Providence 5, and Yale 6.

Saturday: Maine upended Merrimack 3-2 in overtime… Northeastern completed the sweep of UConn with a 4-1 home win… Providence swept Notre Dame after a 3-1 win… Boston College also finished off a sweep of Vermont with a 4-1 win… BU beat New Hampshire 3-2 at home.
