After a tough 4-3 loss to the No. 1 University of Denver last night at Agganis Arena, the No. 6 Boston University men’s hockey team will take on No. 11 Providence College at 7 p.m. at Schneider Arena for another Hockey East matchup. Read our preview here to see who to look out for during this game and follow along on our live blog.
The No. 6 Boston University men’s hockey team hosts the No. 1 University of Denver tonight at 7:30 at Agganis Arena. In case you missed it, read our preview here on tonight’s game and tomorrow night’s game against No. 11 Providence College. Follow along on the live blog below for what should be a very exciting and fun night.
The No. 6 Boston University men’s hockey team split its first Hockey East home-and-home series against the University of Connecticut. On both nights, junior forward and assistant captain Bobo Carpenter, who came into the series with no goals, scored for the Terriers first.
On Friday, Carpenter found the back of the net twice during the second period, both on a pair of BU penalty kills. However, the stellar performance was not enough and UConn’s two power-play goals kept the contest at a 2-2 draw after 65 minutes.
On Saturday at the XL Center in Hartford, Carpenter continued his success with a hat-trick while sophomore forward Patrick Curry, and senior defenseman and captain Brandon Hickey each got their first goals of the season.
The Terriers’ next matchup will be against the No. 1 University of Denver on Friday night at Agganis Arena and then they will travel to play No. 11 Providence College on Saturday night.

The No. 7 Boston University men’s hockey team will begin it’s Hockey East games with a home-and-home series against the University of Connecticut starting tonight at Agganis Arena. Read this week’s preview to see who and what to look out for this weekend. Follow our live blog below:
The No. 2 Boston University men’s hockey team was swept by the Minnesota State University this weekend at Agganis Arena. The Terriers’ former goaltender Connor LaCouvee, who played with BU for three seasons, returned to Boston, but in the opposing team’s net.
While LaCouvee only allowed three goals in the Mavericks’ 6-3 victory, BU’s defense gave up 45 shots, and sophomore goaltender Jake Oettinger’s 39 saves and freshman forward Shane Bowers’ two-goal night could not mitigate the damages of the team’s poor play.
On Saturday, the team responded better, but was unable to match Minnesota State’s physicality particularly around the puck battles and also could not convert on its four power play opportunities. The Mavericks sealed the two-game series with a 3-0 shutout.
BU’s next matchup will be its Hockey East opener against University of Connecticut in a home-and-home series beginning with a game at Agganis on Friday night at 7:30.
Also we’re sorry about all of the technical difficulties that occurred over the weekend in terms of posting the articles. The Daily Free Press’ WordPress went down right when we were going to post the articles. We’re unsure of what caused the website to crash, but apologize for any inconveniences and want to limit any issues like this in the future.
