No. 6/7 women’s hockey continues to bounce back from defeat

The No. 6/7 Boston University women’s hockey team has put together an impressive body of work across the 2014-15 season. However, despite numerous stellar performances and winning streaks, the Terriers (21-8-3, 15-5-1 Hockey East) have been brought back down to earth on several occasions. This phenomenon most recently unfolded in BU’s home-and-home series with No. 1 Boston College this past […]

Two Huskies goals in a span of under two minutes had sheared what was a 3-1 Terrier lead back into a draw, serving as the proverbial gut check to […]

No. 2/3 Terriers take on hot Northeastern team for Beanpot title

No. 2/3 Terriers take on hot Northeastern team for Beanpot title

Junior captain Matt Grzelcyk of the No. 2/3 Boston University men’s hockey doesn’t want to look to the past. A disappointing loss to the University of Notre Dame Saturday is a distant memory, and the prospect of playing three games in four nights doesn’t even cross the defenseman’s thought process at this point. The only thing on Grzelcyk’s mind is the […]

No. 6 women’s hockey ties No. 1 Boston College in heated overtime contest

The No. 6 Boston University women’s hockey team played its last regular season game this Saturday, tying No. 1 Boston College 2-2. Just two days after falling 5-0 to the Eagles (30-1-2, 20-0-1 Hockey East), the Terriers (21-8-3,15-5-1 Hockey East) finished off the two-game series with a much different result. The first period began like any contest against a heated […]

End-of-period mistakes costly in ‘demoralizing’ loss for No. 2/3 BU

No. 2/3 Boston University men’s hockey head coach David Quinn liked his team’s first period on Saturday night against the University of Notre Dame at Agganis Arena. The team was preparing to head to the locker room, the teams locked in a scoreless tie. Until they weren’t. The green light went off behind the goal of freshman goaltender Connor LaCouvee, […]

Notre Dame knocks off No. 2/3 men’s hockey

All was ripe for yet another comeback. The No. 2/3 Boston University men’s hockey team was down two goals in the second period, but turning the corner. Head coach David Quinn called a timeout about halfway through the period, junior forward Mike Moran scored minutes later to cut the deficit to one and BU was on a power play that would […]

’95 BU captain Joubert impressed with current Terrier squad

While a Beanpot title game and playoff aspirations loom on the horizon for the No. 2/3 Boston University men’s hockey team, it still took time out to reflect on its past Friday night at Agganis Arena. During the first intermission of the Terriers’ contest against the University of Notre Dame, BU (19-5-5, 13-3-3 Hockey East) welcomed back members of the […]

Roberto makes presence felt in tie against Notre Dame

Amid all of the dekes, dangles and one-timers that have led to goals this season for the No. 2/3 Boston University men’s hockey team, sophomore forward Nick Roberto’s second-period strike Friday against the University of Notre Dame served as a rather pedestrian outlier. With a little over 9:30 eclipsed on the clock in the second, freshman center Jack Eichel skated […]

No. 2/3 BU clinches share of league title with draw vs. Notre Dame

Entering Friday’s matchup against the University of Notre Dame at Agganis Arena, the No. 2/3 Boston University men’s hockey team knew it needed a win to secure at least a share of the Hockey East regular-season title. And until the final four minutes of the game, that seemed close to coming true. BU (19-5-5, 13-3-3 Hockey East) led Notre Dame […]

No. 6 women’s hockey frustrated by No. 1 Boston College

The No. 6 Boston University women’s hockey team took a trip to Chestnut Hill on Thursday night to take on No. 1 Boston College, but the rivalry game did not go so well for the Terriers. The nation’s top team stymied the Terrier offense while converting on its many chances to grab a 5-0 win. In the last meeting between […]
