The Maine Black Bear hockey team takes on the Boston University Terriers at Alfond Arena in a crucial two game weekend series. With just eight games left on the Hockey East schedule and the Bears on the outside of the playoff picture, points are very much needed.

Maine is 4-10-5 in HE games and #9 in the conference. Only the top eight teams make the playoffs.

BU is 10-7-1 and in the #5 spot.

The two schools have met 118 times on the ice. BU is coached by veteran Jack Parker who has 889 career wins.
