The Boston University Terriers have a chance to win their first Hockey East Regular Season title since the 2008-09 season this weekend as they begin a home and home with the University of
As for BU, UNH doesn't have the defense or the goaltending to contain the Hobey Hattrick Line(Erod-Eichel-O'Regan) but I would expect big weekends from some of the secondary scorers. The second line of Oksanen- Baillargeon- Hohmann is clicking right now getting on the board in the last 3 games. I would also expect a big weekend from Brandon Hickey who has been great as of late for the Terriers. He may have the best one timer from the blue line in the league. BC can have Hanafin, I'll take Hickey, MacLeod, Fortunato and Diffley.
Now enough about how much UNH is embarrassment to Hockey East and how much better BU is than them. What does BU need to do to clinch the Hockey East Regular season title this weekend?
All of these need to happen for BU to clinch:
1. BU sweeps UNH
2. UVM to take 2 or 3 points from BC
3. Notre Dame to take 1 point from PC
No matter what happens elsewhere, BU would clinch a bye through the first round of the Hockey East Tournament with a sweep over UNH. They would then be guaranteed a home Quarterfinal series. It's a great time to be a Terrier fan...not so much to be a hick from New Hampshire.
