*HE Semifinals* Live Blog: BU vs. Northeastern, 3/22 @ 4pm

Join here!

In the 35th annual Hockey East tournament, the Boston University men’s hockey team will open the semifinal round against Northeastern on Friday afternoon at the TD Garden.

The Terriers overcame UMass Lowell in three games last weekend, taking games one and three through a mix of lock-down defense and timely scoring, while falling in the middle game despite a valiant comeback effort.

On the other side, Northeastern took down the University of Maine in the first round with a two-game sweep, outlasting the visitors in overtime in game one, and finishing it off with another hard-fought victory the next night.

The Terriers and Huskies know each other well, having met three times already this season. In their November home-and-home series, BU tied Northeastern to earn their first point of the season, and then gained their first win of the campaign in the second half of the back-to-back.

While BU got the better of the Huskies in the fall, the history that is getting the most attention is February’s Beanpot semifinal meeting. Jake Oettinger made a season-high 47 saves for the Terriers, but it was not enough, as the Huskies found the winner less than a minute into overtime en route to securing back-to-back championships.

The BU men’s hockey team will meet UMass Lowell today for Game 3 of the Hockey East Quarterfinals at Tsongas Center, playing for a ticket to the TD Garden next week.

After the Terriers took Friday’s Game One 3-0, the RiverHawks responded with a 6-4 win in Saturday’s Game Two, setting up for a pivotal Game Three this afternoon.

Tensions ran high towards the end of last night’s contest, with late brawls taking over the game. BU co-captain Bobo Carpenter came up lame after an ugly hit in the final seconds from UML’s Lucas Condotta, who was suspended for Game Three.

It’s win or go home today, and the game is shaping up to be a wild one. Don’t miss any of the action by following our live blog for minute-by-minute updates and conversation about the game! Puck drop is set for 4pm.

Returning to Tsongas Center for Game Two of the Hockey East Quarterfinals, the Boston University men’s hockey team will face off against UMass Lowell in search of a series-clinching victory.

The Terriers turned in an impressive performance in Friday’s series opener, coming away 3-0 winners over the RiverHawks. It was the only Hockey East playoff game of the night to not require overtime, and the only game won by the inferior seed.

With the victorious Game One, BU are now one win away from taking the series and moving on to the quarterfinals. However, with the hosts playing for their lives on the brink of elimination, securing Game Two will not be easy for the traveling Terriers.

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.

Closing out regular season play, the Boston University men’s hockey team will face off against the University of Maine at Alfond Arena in Orono at 7:30pm. The Terriers and Black Bears will meet for the final contest of any Hockey East regular season game, as all nine other teams concluded play last night or earlier this week.

Last night’s results had some major implications on the conference standings. Northeastern’s win over UNH made them the three seed, so BU will be the four or five seed and UMass Lowell will be other, meaning BU and UML will meet in the first round.

Lowell’s tie vs. UVM opened the door for the Terriers to overtake UML with a win at Maine, holding the same total points and head-to-head wins as the RiverHawks, but gaining the tiebreaker through total conference wins, which would become 13 if BU can take down UMaine.

In short, a win tonight for BU would make the Terriers the hosts for the first round series against UMass Lowell. With a loss or tie, UML would retain the fourth seed, and BU would travel to Lowell for the series.

With two games left in the Hockey East regular season, the Terriers will return to Agganis Arena tonight to square off against Merrimack.

BU tied their most recent contest 1-1 at Providence, continuing their four-game unbeaten streak. While gaining only one point against the Friars hurt fifth-place BU’s chances at reaching the conference’s top four to secure a home-ice playoff game, losses from Northeastern and UMass Lowell last night mean that the Terriers are still right there in the hunt.

As for the visitors, Merrimack bring up the bottom of the division standings, and are weeks removed from being serious playoff contenders. That said, the Warriors did put up a good fight in a 4-2 loss to league-leading UMass earlier this week, and beat BU 4-0 in October before falling to the Terriers 7-2 at Agganis Arena later in the season.

After last night’s overtime win via a Chad Krys empty net goal in the final minute, BU will look to make it a series sweep over the Catamounts as they return to UVM’s Gutterson Fieldhouse tonight for the second game of the weekend set.
