From the FreeP: So goes Kieran, so go the Terriers

By Tim Healey/DFP Staff

This weekend, as the No. 13 Boston University men’s hockey team played a home-and-home series with No. 2/3 Boston College, the Terriers learned – or re-learned, maybe – one of the most important trends about the team: so goes Kieran, so go the Terriers.

In both games, a 5-3 win Friday at Conte Forum and a 6-1 loss Saturday at Agganis Arena, the performance of senior goaltender Kieran Millan made most of the difference in the success of the Terriers (8-5-1, 6-4-1 Hockey East) against the Eagles (11-5-0, 8-3-0 Hockey East).

On Friday night, Millan got his weekend off to a start that could have hardly gone better. After limiting opponents to one goal or fewer in three straight games, including a 5-0 shutout of BC on Nov. 13, the 2009 Hockey East Rookie of the Year continued his torrid hot streak with 42 saves.
