The #2/3 (13-6-1 )BU Terriers prepare for a home and home this weekend with the (9-9-2)Providence College Friars. The Friars took the first game in October, a 5-3 win at PC's Schneider Arena. The Terriers are coming off a 3 game winning streak to begin 2012 with victories over Merrimack, Northeastern, and Harvard. The Terriers got goals from 6 different players last weekend as Megan, Rodrigues, Clendening, Connolly, Noonan, and Rosen all scored in Friday or Saturday's game. The Terriers look for a big weekend against Providence to take control of Hockey East and keep the positive momentum going into a pair with Maine next weekend. PC's two leading guys in points are freshman Ross Mauerman(8-9-17) and sophomore Derek Army (8-7-15). Their leading goal scorer, forward Tim Schaller is out for 3-4 weeks with mono. Man, kid was being too much of a player over break. The Friars are lead in net by senior Alex Beaudry who has posted decent numbers with .902 2.82 and 8-8-2 record for the Friars under first year coach Nate Leaman who has already made great strides with the program in his short time in Providence.
