The Eagles will face the Terriers in tonight’s Hockey East Tournament semifinal, hopefully improving their record against BU to 1-3 this season. This is a must-win for BC if they want to make the NCAA Tournament - and even if they win, that's not necessarily going to happen. BC is coming off of a dominant weekend against Vermont, while BU and Northeastern were slightly more evenly matched in their quarterfinals games.

The first semifinal tomorrow will be Notre Dame vs. UMass Lowell at 5 PM. We are all Riverhawks for that one because byeee Notre Dame.
