Crosstown Chippiness

It’s well known in this town that there’s very little love lost between Boston University and Boston College. That rivalry is showcased in crystal clear fashion whenever their top flight hockey teams square off on the ice.

Their latest tilt took place Sunday night, with the visiting then-No. 16 Terriers taking on the then-No. 2 Eagles at Conte Forum in Chestnut Hill. Penalties, fights and goals — for BU, anyway — were plentiful as BU cruised to a lopsided 5-0 win.
