Coming off an 8-0 massacre at the hands of Harvard University that jettisoned the team to the Beanpot consolation game, the Boston University women’s hockey squad will return to conference play this weekend with a home-and-home series against the No. 9 University of Connecticut.
Wedged between the two games of the 57th Annual Beanpot Tournament, the Boston University men’s hockey team hosts the University of Massachusetts-Lowell on Friday night at Agganis Arena.
In last year’s Beanpot consolation game, the Boston University women’s ice hockey team took a step forward, defeating Boston College, 3-1.
After the Boston University women’s hockey team fell, 8-0, to Harvard University last night in the opening round of the annual Beanpot Tournament, BU coach Brian Durocher was asked when, precisely, his team’s game plan broke down.
The Boston University women’s hockey team remembers what happened last Feb. 12. The Terriers remember being tested, both physically and mentally, by Harvard University. They remember the 34 saves that then-junior goaltender Allyse Wilcox made that night. But they also remember the three shots that found the back of the net.
