Friday Preview: #6 Boston University

Tonight Northeastern faces off against eternal enemy Boston University tonight. This is going to be a very interesting matchup for a number of reasons. Firstly, this is Vinny Saponari’s first game against his former team. For him, it’s a chance to take revenge. For BU, it’s a chance to take revenge for their defeat in the Hockey East quarterfinals last year. Finally, BU still has to step up after the loss of two of their top players last month.

Despite BU’s losses, they’re still a loaded team. Northeastern won’t get anything easy tonight, and they have to know it. Northeastern is playing at home in a packed arena, so needs to get the crowd into it, so score early to get them involved, and keep pounding away at Millan, force him to make mistakes. Keep the BU offense to the outside and block shots.

Northeastern needs to play a very solid game if it wants to win tonight, but I think it can do it.
