Boston University: Coming down the home stretch in Hockey East, the Terriers are looking to climb atop the league standings. They sit in third, two points out of first place with four games to go -- including two at Vermont. Coming into this weekend, BU has swept the season series with New Hampshire, and has taken wins from Maine, Denver, Northeastern, and Merrimack. While the Terriers won two of three against Boston College in Hockey East play, losing the Beanpot championship game in OT to their rivals has obviously stung, as did a split with upstart Lowell last weekend. This is a team that has thrived in the face of distractions -- see Corey Trivino and Charlie Coyle early in the season -- and they'll have to do so again with Max NiCastro's arrest and subsequent suspension earlier this week.
