A first-period goal gives BU the initial lead and caps an impressive eight-month stretch for the Marshfield native.
With all the hoopla surrounding Friday night’s showdown between Boston University and No. 7/8 Boston College at Fenway Park, it might be difficult to remember that there is something more important than bragging rights on the line ‘-’- two points in the Hockey East standings.
The Boston University men’s hockey team entered Saturday’s contest with the No. 15 University of Massachusetts with a disastrous 4-9-3 start to their season in the rearview mirror. By game’s end, the Terriers were driving full speed to a turnaround for their season, knocking off the Minutemen 7-3 at Agganis Arena.
The headline heading into last night’s Original Six matchup between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs sounded more like a wrestling match than a hockey game. ‘Kesselmania: Part Two.’
Close family friends of former Terrier great Mike Sullivan, his parents had Boston University men’s hockey season tickets. The youngest of three brothers, he spent winter days on the backyard ponds of his native Marshfield and weekend nights inside Walter Brown Arena, a witness to the heydays of names like Drury, Tkachuk and Grier.
