Women’s hockey earns weekend, season sweep of Providence

The Boston University women’s hockey team came up with a much-needed home-and-home sweep of Providence College this weekend, taking the contests 5-1 and 4-2, respectively. Fresh off a 6-1 rout at the hands of No. 4 Quinnipiac University on Wednesday, the Terriers (16-9-2, 13-4-2 Hockey East) responded decisively against the Friars (8-17-1, 4-11-1 Hockey East). With the two wins, BU […]

Women’s hockey relishes game at Agganis Arena

Much of the Boston University women’s hockey team’s 5-1 win over Providence College Saturday was akin to a normal day at the office. Head coach Brian Durocher stood resolutely behind the bench, BU (16-9-2, 13-4-2 Hockey East) donned its scarlet and white uniforms and sophomore forward Rebecca Leslie put together another stellar day. There was one major difference, however, as […]

Crossley, Newton show importance for women’s hockey

The old adage “You can’t win if you can’t score” carries a great deal of weight on the ice, but that doesn’t mean defense should remain in a team’s periphery. This is something head coach Brian Durocher has preached to the Boston University women’s hockey team all season. In a weekend in which the Terriers (16-9-2, 13-4-2 Hockey East) swept […]

Carpenter notches 2 goals, leads way in No. 11 BU’s win over Maine

Before he departed for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in December, former No. 11 Boston University men’s hockey forward A.J. Greer said flatly what he liked about freshman Bobo Carpenter playing the center position. “He wins draws,” Greer said after BU’s tie against No. 10 Cornell University. It was a more than an astute observation from Greer, and since […]

Lane, Carpenter guide men’s hockey to sweep of Maine

The first two goals the No. 11 Boston University men’s hockey team scored proved to be enough. But just to be safe, the Terriers added four more in one of their more dominant offensive performances of the season. Freshman forward Bobo Carpenter and senior assistant captain Matt Lane had two goals apiece in a 6-1 win over the University of […]

Maine without ‘any answer’ to Greenway, Lane, Oksanen line in No. 11 Terriers’ win

ORONO, Maine — Aside from the goal differential itself, the biggest disparity in the No. 11 Boston University men’s hockey team’s victory over the University of Maine on Friday night was BU’s ability to grind its opponent “better than any other team” had so far this season. At least that’s how Maine head coach Red Gendron put it afterward. “When […]

No. 11 men’s hockey pulls past Maine, takes series opener

ORONO, Maine — BU head coach David Quinn said earlier in the week that his team had been practicing and skating better than it did in the preceding weekend’s games. There was a confidence that the No. 11 Boston University men’s hockey team would have a better series against the University Maine than it did against No. 4 Boston College. It would […]

Maine weekend awaits No. 11 men’s hockey

In consecutive games last weekend against then-No. 4 Boston College, the final two minutes of regulation were all that separated the No. 11 Boston University men’s hockey team from having a great series or an unsatisfied one. What appeared poised to be a three- or possibly four-point weekend for BU turned into a two-day span in which the Terriers (11-7-4, 5-4-3 […]

No. 4 Quinnipiac overpowers women’s hockey in matinee

For the Terriers (14-9-2, 11-4-2 Hockey East), this was the third road game in a span of five days. After collecting three of four points in a weekend set against […]
