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.
