The regular season is over, and the postseason has begun! BU will face off against UMass Lowell in Game 1 of the Best-of-3 Quarterfinal series tonight at Lowell’s Tsongas Center.
The fifth-seed Terriers were trounced 6-0 in their regular season finale by UMaine, surrendering their bid at home ice for the series with fourth-seed Lowell. However, the Terriers went unbeaten in their five games prior, and are looking to make another improbable Hockey East tournament run like they did last season.
As for the hosts, Lowell limped across the finish line, concluding their season with a stretch of seven games that only featured one win. While the RiverHawks did beat BU 5-3 in the teams’ first meeting back in December, the Terriers got the best of UML 5-2 in the reverse fixture at the Tsongas Center the next night.
