Terriers look to keep momentum against Riverhawks

By Tim Healey/DFP Staff

Saturday night at 7 p.m., the No. 12 Boston University men’s hockey team will attempt to do something it has not done all season: win two games in a row.

Fresh off an overtime win over University of Massachusetts last Saturday, BU (3-2-1, 2-1-1 Hockey East) will get its third chance to go on a win streak when it takes on the Minutemen’s satellite school counterparts, the University of Massachusetts-Lowell River Hawks and first-year coach Norm Bazin, at the Tsongas Center.

On the BU side of the ice, most eyes will be on sophomore forward Matt Nieto, the owner of an eight-game goal scoring streak that dates back to the end of the 2010-11 season. With a goal on Saturday, Nieto will match the nine-game scoring streak by former BU forward Chris Drury from November 1996.

Despite Nieto’s success, there are a number of other forwards garnering the attention of BU coach Jack Parker, particularly sophomore Sahir Gill.
