BOSTON -- Good evening and welcome inside Agganis Arena on the campus of Boston University where the No. 7 Terriers host No. 9 Harvard in their traditional meeting on the Tuesday night before Thanksgiving. Puck drop is set for 7 p.m.
Tonight marks the 153rd all-time meeting between the Beanpot rivals, but their first since BU came back for a 6-5 win last Jan. 7 at Bright-Landry Hockey Center. The Terriers lead the all-time series, 78-68-6.
BU split its second Hockey East weekend series of the season with a 4-0 loss to Connecticut on Saturday, a night after earning a 2-1 win in Hartford. Sophomore Jordan Greenway scored his team-leading sixth goal of the season in Friday’s contest, while Gabriel Chabot’s first career goal was the game-winner.
Connor LaCouvee made 29 saves in the first start of his junior season Friday and is set to tend the BU net again this evening.
Harvard faces its second straight Hockey East foe and third straight top-10 opponent tonight after earning posting a 5-2 home win over Boston College on Friday. The Crimson have scored four or more goals in all five of their victories this season.
Senior Tyler Moy leads Harvard with five goals and 11 points, including at least one in every game this season and two goals in Friday’s win.
