BU Day: Terriers head South to Providence

Terrier Fan Blog February 28, 2019 Comments Off on BU Day: Terriers head South to Providence

Terriers travel to #8 Providence for their third meeting of the year with the Friars. BU goes into the 7 p.m. game tied with Maine for fifth place in Hockey East, three points behind Northeastern and Lowell, who are tied for third. After tonight’s game, BU will have two games left on its regular-season schedule: Saturday’s home game against Merrimack and a road game against Maine a week later.

PC shut out BU, 5-0, in October and the Terriers rallied for a 4-3 win last month on third-period goals by David Farrance and Logan Cockerill.

The Friars’ offense is led by junior Josh Wilkens with 30 points, freshman Jack Dugan (30), junior Brandon Duhaime and junior Kasper Björkqvist (25).  Hayden Hawkey leads all Hockey East goalies with a 1.82 GAA.

BU’s defense corps boast the conference’s top three shot-blockers: David Farrance(66), Kasper Kotkansalo (61) and Cam Crotty (58). Over his last four starts, goal Jake Oettinger has two shutouts and has yielded just four goals. He was co-winner of Hockey East’s Defensive Player of the Week award for his efforts in the sweep of Vermont.

The game will air live on NBC Sports Boston and can be seen on Friars All-Access (PPV).

This Week’s episode of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett’s interviews with Head Coach Albie O’Connell and junior forward Patrick Harper, who has scored twice in the last four games. His goal against Vermont last Saturday—a slick passing play with Patrick Curry—was the NCAA #5 play of the week.
