The BU women’s hockey team (11-7-2) will test the mettle of conference foe Northeastern (3-15-1) at Walter Brown Arena on Saturday, January 13, at 7 p.m. in the first of four regular-season matchups between these Hockey East rivals.

BU has a 5-3 record at Walter Brown Arena this season, with its last home victory coming at the expense of Sacred Heart. Caroline Bourdeau (CGS’07) recorded a career-high four points (one goal, three assists) in the 8-0 drubbing of the Pioneers. The Terriers, in fifth place with a 3-5-1 conference record, will need a victory or a tie against Northeastern to stay ahead of the Huskies (2-8-1) in the standings.
