No. 11 men’s hockey scores late, earns tie against No. 1 Providence

PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — With under two minutes remaining the the third period, the No. 11 Boston University men’s hockey team found itself down a goal to top-ranked Providence College. But, as senior winger Ahti Oksanen put it, there was no downtrodden feeling among the Terriers. No, there was a confidence that a tying goal would be scored. It would have to […]

No. 11 men’s hockey squares off with No. 1 Providence in championship rematch

When the No. 11 Boston University men’s hockey team faces No. 1 Providence College for a home-and-home series on Friday and Saturday, the immediate instinct, arguably, is to view the weekend as the ultimate rematch. Without question, most BU fans remember the last time the Terriers (5-3, 3-2 Hockey East) faced Providence (6-0-1, 0-0 Hockey East): the 2015 national championship […]

Matt Grzelcyk tallies 2 points in return to men’s hockey lineup

In his first game back after recovering from offseason knee surgery, Matt Grzelcyk made an immediate impact for the No. 11 Boston University men’s hockey team.
