Hockey East Beating Itself Up in Stretch Drive

With two weeks left in Hockey East play, nothing much is settled. This weekend did not help to provide much clarity either as three of the five pairings were splits and the lone sweep was an “upset”, further jamming the schools in the standings. New Hampshire and Boston College have separated themselves from the pack […]

BU Drops BC as Beanpot Looms

The seasons of the Terriers and Eagles are on opposite trajectories now. BU had a very tough start, but is rebounding lately and has now beaten their arch-rival in the last two meetings.

Frozen Fenway, BU-BC and a Much Needed Party

It takes a lot to impress me. Very rarely do I walk out of a movie, a concert, a social gathering or sporting event shaking my head in pleasurable disbelief. Not to say I don’t enjoy any of these things, because I often do. It’s just I don’t get blown away very often. I’m much […]

Eagles, Terriers Heading in Opposite Directions Leading into Fenway Matchup

Engineers Overpower Terriers

The RPI Engineers and the BU Terriers faced off Friday night. It was a battle of the bottom of the barrel, as both teams were second to last in their conferences. BU put up a good fight, but in the end too many mistakes an an inability to score during 5-on-5 play cost them the match, […]
