#15 Terriers face a critical weekend with a pair of Hockey East games. Tonight, BU will try to gain a split in its regular-season series with #13 Northeastern, following last week’s 4-1 home loss to the Huskies. Puck drop at Matthews Arena for the Military Appreciation Night contest is set for 7 p.m. BU hosts #9 New Hampshire Saturday night at Agganis Arena with a 7 p.m. start time.
Last weekend, Northeastern senior Nolan Stevens’ hat trick was the difference in the Huskies’ win (recap) at Agganis Arena. Junior Jordan Greenway had BU’s lone tally, a power play goal set up by sophomore Patrick Harper’s slick entry pass.
