If the Boston University hockey team hadn't been massacred by Yale last weekend 19 to 1, it might be said that the Crimson skaters would have trouble against the Terriers at the Boston Arena at 7:45 o'clock tonight. But in view of the Eli debacle, the Chasemen, victors by overwhelming margins in their first three contests, must be conceded a distinct edge.
Last winter the Terriers threw a scare into the Crimson before bowing 3 to 2 in a tight engagement. This season they opened the campaign with a decisive 14 to 2 licking of M.I.T., a crew the puck-Chasers shackled 13 to 4--scores which correspond more closely than somewhat.
Coach Chase sees no reason for changing what has been a very successful starting six, and he is sticking to his original starters. The old reliable line of Caleb Loring, Mare Beebe (the scorer of four goals against Northeastern) and Billy Harding, will be doing business at the same old stand, as will defensemen Dick Mechem and Captain Johnny Paine. Goodie Harding, whose goal-tending activities have been limited to a single period in each game thus far, dons the pads as usual.
