The No. 6 Boston University men’s hockey team split its first Hockey East home-and-home series against the University of Connecticut. On both nights, junior forward and assistant captain Bobo Carpenter, who came into the series with no goals, scored for the Terriers first.
On Friday, Carpenter found the back of the net twice during the second period, both on a pair of BU penalty kills. However, the stellar performance was not enough and UConn’s two power-play goals kept the contest at a 2-2 draw after 65 minutes.
On Saturday at the XL Center in Hartford, Carpenter continued his success with a hat-trick while sophomore forward Patrick Curry, and senior defenseman and captain Brandon Hickey each got their first goals of the season.
The Terriers’ next matchup will be against the No. 1 University of Denver on Friday night at Agganis Arena and then they will travel to play No. 11 Providence College on Saturday night.
