The marathon ends here. Hockey East's regular season concludes on Saturday night and No. 19 Boston University welcomes rival Northeastern to Agganis Arena for a closing contest with serious playoff implications for next week's quarterfinals.

BOSTON -- The marathon ends here.

Good evening from Boston University's beautiful Agganis Arena where the No. 19 Terriers (17-15-2, 14-10-2 Hockey East) close the regular season home schedule against the crosstown rival Northeastern Huskies (9-20-4, 5-17-4 HE) - their fourth and final meeting of 2012-13.

In the series opener on Friday at Matthews Arena, the Terriers scored twice in the first and third periods for a 4-2 victory. BU never trailed in the contest as they went up 2-0 in the first period before building to a 4-1 lead early in the final stanza. Each of the Terriers' four forward lines tallied a goal in the contest, including senior Jake Moscatel's first-career tally, and 31 saves from freshman Sean Maguire.

The game marks the 219th of all-time between the two sides in a series that dates back to 1930-31. The Huskies earned the first two wins in the series this year, including a 3-2 Beanpot victory on Feb. 4, but the Hockey East mark is tied at 1-1. BU has not lost a league season series to the Huskies since 1988-89.
