Game Day: Terriers visit UConn

Terrier Fan Blog February 15, 2019 Comments Off on Game Day: Terriers visit UConn

As the final weeks of Hockey East’s regular season begin, the Terriers start a home-and-home series against Connecticut with four important points on the line. Tonight’s game in Hartford’s XL Center commences at 7 p.m. A pay-per-view live stream is available (link below).

In the only previous meeting this season, BU edged the Huskies, 3-2, in the opening round of the Friendship Four in Belfast. Similarly, both Terrier wins over UConn in last Spring’s Hockey East quarterfinals were by one-goal margins.

The Huskies, coming off wins against Merrimack and Northeastern, are led on offense by Karl E-Mir with 25 points, freshman Jáchym Kondelík  (24) and Alexander Payusov, who has 14 goals.  Adam Huska and freshman Tomas Vornacka have split the goaltending duties.

BU is expected to be without senior center Bobo Carpenter again this weekend.
