Lil Bro Preview

The 3-2 BU Terriers return to action this weekend after a week off from gameplay against their Beanpot opponent and little brother Northeastern Huskies. The Huskies come into the matchup 3-2-2 on the year the popular pick among many people to be one of BU's toughest competitors this season. The probably for Northeastern is that BU has dominated them forever(161-58-8) and especially since David Quinn took over at BU. The Terriers are 7-1 against the Huskies over the last three years with the one loss in a 6-5 game at the end of 2015 season when BU had all but clinched the Hockey East regular season title.

Lil Bro is lead this season by senior forward Zach Aston-Reese, junior Dylan Sikura, and sophomore Adam Gaudette who all have double digit points through ten games this year. The Huskies also are getting contributions from senior assistant captain and former Terrier Brendan Collier. Former Terrier Sam Kurker is also on the roster. I certainly don't typically root for lil bro unless they are playing BC(or maybe Lowell if Lowell fans are being stupid which is most of the time) but most if not all BU fans seem to be pulling for Collier and Kurker to succeed as they have moved on in their careers.

Northeastern is the type of team that BU is set up to have success with as they play a similar offensive style as BU but have significantly less talent at every position . This is no fault of Northeastern as every team in the NCAA and CHL has significantly less talent than BU. Lil Bro may come out flying tomorrow night at home and try to take a shot at the big bro's mouth but we all know how this fight(if you can call it that) ends. It ends with the Terriers adding two more bricks to that wall of wins.
