The Boston University women’s hockey team will look for a strong finish to its regular season this weekend with a home-and-home series against conference rival Northeastern University.
Shootouts used to be the Boston University women’s hockey team’s best friend. The Terriers were at a conference-best 4-0 in shootouts under Hockey East’s new policy, which rewards shootout wins in conference play with two points and a shootout loss with one, while both count as ties in the NCAA records.
Now in the home stretch of the 2009 season, the No.1 Boston University men’s ice hockey team split a weekend series with the University of Maine, winning Friday night’s contest, 7-2, before settling for a 2-2 tie Saturday.
The most important game is the next one. It’s a boring philosophy, one that every team seems to preach, but few actually practice.
