GameDay: Terriers host Arizona State

Terrier Fan Blog January 25, 2019 Comments Off on GameDay: Terriers host Arizona State

Terriers will look to continue their second semester success as they host Arizona State for a pair of games at Agganis Arena. Tonight’s game is set for 7:30 and will be live streamed on Terrier TV on Stadium.

A year ago, BU traveled to Arizona and came away with a pair of wins—8-0 and 4-3—over the Wildcats in the first-ever meeting between the teams.

#17/15 ASU has a 16-9-1 record and owns wins against Penn State, Harvard and Michigan State (twice). Last weekend, the Wildcats dropped a pair of games at Cornell.

Their offense is led by the nation’s goal-scoring leader, Johnny Walker, who has 19 tallies along with eight assists. Defenseman Brinson Pasichnuk has 20 points. Massachusetts native—and Cardinal Cushing alum—Joey Daccord has played all 26 games with a 2.24 GAA and a nation’s best six shutouts.

BU has been getting more balanced scoring the past seven games (5-1-1). Junior Patrick Curry has eight points (2G, 6A) over that span and freshman Joel Farabee has eight points (3G, 5A) in the past six games. Dante Fabbro leads the Terriers with 20 points and is on a four-game scoring streak, as is Shane Bowers.

BU, who tied Merrimack, 2-2, in an October meeting, is in fourth place in Hockey East, three points ahead of the fifth-place Warriors.
