The Boston University Terriers will travel up to Lowell tonight to take on the UMass-Lowell Riverhawks at 7 p.m. The Terriers go into this game at 14-13-2 and are struggling to right the ship during a terrible second half that threatens to drop them out of home ice contention for the Hockey East playoffs. You can listen live on AM 1510 – NBC Sports.
Northeastern University will host the Providence College Friars at 7 p.m. The Huskies have lost the last seven out of ten games and are in dire need of a win if they hope to make the playoffs at all.

The Bruins next game will be in Florida against the Panthers. After part of the team came down with the flu this past week, it looks like they will have a full line up for this game. The Bruins have won their last two games and hope to continue their winning streak. The action begins at 3 p.m. on NESN.
The Boston College Eagles hockey team will travel to Andover to take on Merrimack College at 4 p.m. The Eagles tied their last game and lost the one before that, thereby allowing Merrimack to leapfrog over them into first place in Hockey East.
