Depth, 4th line prove ‘huge’ in BU’s win over No. 10 Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Indiana — Having not played in either game last weekend, junior forward Robbie Baillargeon was reinserted into the lineup for the No. 9 Boston University men’s hockey team on Friday night. Even with his name penciled in on the line chart before BU’s game with No. 10 University of Notre Dame, one might imagine he would play a […]

BU men’s hockey wins 1st game of series vs. Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Indiana — The Compton Family Ice Arena wasn’t too friendly to the Boston University men’s hockey team two years ago. In the midst of a losing 2013-14 season, the Terriers traveled to the University of Notre Dame in the penultimate regular-season weekend, and dropped both games with matching 2-0 losses. And that wasn’t made much better when the […]

Notre Dame weekend marks men’s hockey’s regular season end

For the No. 9 Boston University men’s hockey team, the goal entering the weekend is simple. “Get four points instead of three,” said BU head coach David Quinn. As the Terriers (18-9-5, 11-5-4 Hockey East) get set to begin a weekend away at the No. 10 University of Notre Dame, Quinn said the team did “a lot of good things” […]

Women’s hockey, with Hockey East and NCAA Championships nearing, enters second gear

The regular season has come and gone, and that tends to mean one thing for the Boston University women’s hockey team. Playoff hockey is on the horizon, and this year’s senior class is no stranger to the win-or-go-home mentality that often defines February and March. After all, they’ve played a crucial role in BU (20-12-2, 17-5-2 Hockey East) advancing to […]

Women’s hockey splits Northeastern weekend, learns Hockey East fate

With Hockey East’s second-place seed on the line, the Boston University women’s hockey team had all to play for in a home-and-away series with No. 6 Northeastern University this past weekend. Four points would have granted BU the aforementioned slot, but BU’s (20-12-2, 17-5-2 Hockey East) efforts fell just short against the Huskies (26-7-1, 20-4 Hockey East). A 3-2 win […]

BU seniors recognized, set tempo in final regular-season home game

What does this year’s senior class mean to the No. 9 Boston University men’s hockey team? “Oh,” said sophomore goaltender Connor LaCouvee. “Everything.” Prior to the Terriers’ (18-9-5, 11-5-4 Hockey East) 3-2 win over the University of New Hampshire on Saturday night, the six graduating skaters took their turns shuffling along the red carpet that had been rolled out on […]

No. 9 men’s hockey scores early, hangs on late, defeats UNH

The first two periods were more than productive for the No. 9 Boston University men’s hockey team, with the Terriers building a three-goal advantage over the University of New Hampshire through 40 minutes. Yet the opening couple of minutes in the third period were not as fruitful — they were pretty dicey. As the Wildcats cut the BU lead to […]

As offensive depth wanes, BU men’s hockey relies on O’Regan, top line for goals vs. UNH

DURHAM, New Hampshire — In a situation where it lacked forward depth, the No. 9 Boston University men’s hockey team got all of its top production from its newly revamped top line in a 3-3 tie at the University of New Hampshire on Friday night at the Whittemore Center. Senior assistant captain and right wing Danny O’Regan was responsible for […]

No. 9 men’s hockey blows two-goal lead, ‘not good enough’ in tie with UNH

No. 9 men’s hockey blows two-goal lead, ‘not good enough’ in tie with UNH

DURHAM, New Hampshire — It was a frustrating night for the No. 9 Boston University men’s hockey team. A fruitless first period against the University of New Hampshire at the Whittemore Center on Friday bled into a pretty productive second period for the Terriers (17-9-5, 10-5-4 Hockey East), who went up two goals to none on a pair of tallies […]
