Boston University: The Terriers went 4-2-0 in November after combining for just three November wins over the previous two seasons… BU enters December on a four-game win streak, its longest in over a year, as the 2010-11 team won its last four games in October…Ohio State (7) and Minnesota-Duluth (5) are the only teams in the country which are currently on a longer win streak than the Terriers…BU is now 7-0-1 in its last eight games at Madison Square Garden, dating back to 1966…Senior captain Chris Connolly (Duluth, Minn.) is only two points away from becoming the 78th player in program history to reach 100 career points…Senior Corey Trivino (Toronto, Ont.) had a five-game goal-scoring streak snapped after going scoreless at Red Hot Hockey…Trivino and sophomore Garrett Noonan (Norfolk, Mass.) have already matched their goal output from last season with eight and four tallies, respectively…The Terriers have killed off 17 of their opponents' last 18 power-play chances…BU and Cornell sold out Madison Square Garden for the third time in as many tries.

Sophomore goaltender Doug Carr was in net for each game, making 20 saves against Alabama-Huntsville.

New Hampshire: UNH exploded for 15 goals over the week with a non-conference split against Harvard (7-6 loss) and Alabama Huntsville (9-1 win)...John Henrion's four assists against Harvard far best his previous high of one assist on multiple occasions and are the most by a Wildcat since Blake Kessel handed out four assists on Jan. 16, 2010 against Dartmouth...Grayson Downing had a career day with two goals and two assists for four points against Harvard on Tuesday night...Saturday night, the Wildcats scored nine goals in a game for the first time since a 9-4 win over Holy Cross on Dec. 8, 2008...Stevie Moses scored a career-high four goals for his first collegiate hat trick.

Northeastern downed U of M, 3-2, on Oct. 28, 2006 in its last trip to Michigan. Northeastern put together its first three-game winning streak since the 2009-10 season when the Huskies won five-straight from Feb. 2 to Feb. 19, 2010.
