From the FreeP: Terriers look to maintain strong start in home-and-home with UMass-Lowell

By Scott McLaughlin/DFP Staff

The No. 5/6 Boston University men’s hockey team will look to remain undefeated when it takes on the University of Massachusetts-Lowell in a home-and-home series this weekend.

The Terriers are coming off a 2-1 win against Providence College that was anything but pretty. The Friars outshot BU 40-20, including 33-12 over the final two periods. They recorded 14 of those shots on seven power plays.

In addition to penalty trouble, BU coach Jack Parker cited his team’s poor performance on faceoffs as a reason for the lopsided shot totals. The Terriers (4-0-1, 2-0-1 Hockey East) won just 20 of the game’s 54 draws – a measly 37 percent.
