From the FreeP: Give and take: Terriers split weekend series with BC

By Arielle Aronson/DFP Staff

In the closing game of the No. 13 Boston University hockey team’s season series against No. 2/3 Boston College, the Eagles (11-5-0, 8-3-0 Hockey East) avoided a season sweep with a 6-1 drubbing of the Terriers (8-5-1, 6-4-1 Hockey East) Saturday night at Agganis Arena.

It was the Terriers’ first loss in their last six games, ending BU’s longest win streak since closing out its 2008-09 NCAA championship run. It also marked the end of a strange weekend for the Terriers, who won a game Friday despite getting outplayed and lost a game Saturday despite their improved play.

“I explained that in the dressing room, that ‘You probably are wondering why we got a W [Friday] and I’m really upset with you, and then I’m telling you that was a pretty good game tonight,’” said BU head coach Jack Parker. “Sometimes it goes that way. For the most part, we were playing the right way tonight.”
