The No. 10 Boston University women’s hockey team lost 2-1 in its conference home opener Monday night against rival Boston College at Walter Brown Arena.
It was as close to an old-fashioned Western duel as you can get in a cold hockey rink in Boston. Two rivals, one a Boston University senior and the other a Boston College freshman, situated at opposite ends from another, ready to take on slapshots, wrist shots and any other kind of shots the opponents could fire on net.
More often than not in hockey, the team that wins the battles down around the net is the team that wins the game. Saturday night was no exception.
After a month on the road, the Boston University women’s hockey team is coming home on a high. The No. 10 Terriers culminated their grueling five-game road trip with a 3-1 victory over conference nemesis Providence College on Saturday.
Friday morning, Jack Parker had an idea. After Friday’s 5-4 overtime win against the No. 8/9 University of Massachusetts-Lowell, it looked like the No. 4 Boston University men’s hockey coach’s idea might change his team’s entire season.
