No. 6/7 Women’s hockey set for matchup against No. 3/4 Quinnipiac

Hot off a Hockey East victory against crosstown rival Northeastern University on Sunday, the No. 6/7 Boston University women’s hockey team will look to continue this momentum Wednesday against non-conference foe No. 3/4 Quinnipiac University. The Terriers (14-5-2, 10-3 Hockey East) have started the new year off with two wins in four games over the past two weeks. Senior captain Marie-Philip […]

In a showcase of premier goaltending and offensive ability, the Terriers (14-5-2, 10-3 Hockey East) skated away from Matthews Arena with a narrow 4-3 victory. The […]

Potent power play keys Terriers to comeback win over River Hawks

  After posting a despondent 0-for-12 showing on the power play during a three-game stretch from Nov. 30-Dec. 6, the No. 2/3 Boston University men’s hockey went back to basics on the man advantage. The results have followed. Over their last six games, the Terriers (13-4-4, 8-2-2 Hockey East) have scored nine times on the power play — good for a […]

No. 2 Terriers rally past No. 6 Lowell with 3-goal comeback

Like on Friday night against Boston College, the No. 2 Boston University men’s hockey team started Sunday afternoon’s game against No. 6 University of Massachusetts Lowell with a sloppy first period. And like that game against BC, the Terriers again trailed by two goals in the second period. But unlike Friday night, BU ended this game with a celebration. Junior […]

BU men’s hockey falls short of comeback vs. Boston College

It got ugly in the first two minutes, when freshman forward Chase Phelps and forward Alex Tuch received matching penalties for roughing. It got uglier when four more players were sent to the box for roughing two minutes later. And it got even uglier when junior forward Danny O’Regan was called for tripping, and 30 seconds after that, freshman forward […]

No. 2/3 Terriers host No. 17 BC, No. 6 Lowell in weekend homestand

The argument could be made that this upcoming weekend could stand as the toughest test that the No. 2/3 Boston University men’s hockey team has faced thus far this season. Returning to the friendly confines of Agganis Arena, the Terriers (12-3-4, 7-1-2 Hockey East) will play host to archrival No. 17 Boston College Friday night before ushering in No. 6 […]

1st-line play helps No. 2 Terriers demolish Badgers

MADISON, Wisconsin — There would be no dramatics in store for the No. 2 Boston University men’s hockey team Saturday night. Just a day after BU (12-3-4, 7-1-2 Hockey East) needed a miraculous late-game comeback to salvage a 3-3 draw against the University of Wisconsin, the Terriers — namely their first line — flexed their muscles on offense. Six unanswered goals later, the Terriers […]

No. 2 Terriers use last-second comeback to tie Wisconsin

MADISON, Wisconsin — By his own admission, junior winger Ahti Oksanen had no idea where the puck hit him. Sticks were flying and slashing the Finnish native as he crashed the net in a wild final-second scramble. But when he saw the round piece of vulcanized rubber cross the goal line with 2.2 seconds remaining in the third period, he […]

No. 1 Terriers open 2015 with draw against Dutchmen

Staring at a one-goal deficit against Union College in the third period, the No. 1 Boston University men’s hockey appeared to receive new life thanks to a power-play opportunity with less than five minutes remaining on the clock. However, based on their current track record with the extra-man unit, the Terriers (11-3-3, 7-1-2 Hockey East) might have just preferred to […]
