By the Numbers versus BC and UConn; Jaromir Jagr discusses Jack Eichel

The No. 3 Boston University men’s hockey team’s win over No. 8 Boston College at Conte Forum on Friday propelled the Terriers higher into the national rankings. A tie versus the University of Connecticut the following night meant the Terriers (5-1-1, 3-1-1 Hockey East) earned three out of four points in Hockey East play over the weekend.

Again, we take a look at BU’s Corsi and Fenwick numbers from each of the games this weekend in this edition of By the Numbers.

*Note: On the Boston College scoresheet, the BC stats people did not indicate each shot that was a power-play chance. Instead of subtracting power-play shots on goal, I will just use all shots toward net for that game for simplicity reasons. For the UConn game, I will only look at 5-on-5 chances.*

Takeaway

Against the Eagles (4-4, 1-3 Hockey East), BU definitely did not spend all that much time in the offensive zone. The Terriers did, however, make the most of their chances in the third and got a little bit of puck luck. Junior goaltender Matt O’Connor stood tall on his end to keep BU in the game. It didn’t take puck possession, but a couple of flukey goals propelled the Terriers in this one.

On the other hand, BU could’ve easily defeated UConn (2-4-3, 1-2-1 Hockey East) by three-plus goals last Saturday. On even-strength chances, BU held the puck for extended periods of time. The penalties caught up to the team, which is why the score was tied in the end. Staying out of the penalty box is paramount for this team going forward.

    • Hi Glenn! Nikolas Olsson and Robbie are actually the unavailable ones — what we got from Coach Quinn today: “We’re not gonna have Baillargeon, we’re not gonna have Olsson. We’re beat up.” Ahti is good to go for Friday.

  1. Hi Sarah! Thanks for your reply. Sorry – I mistakenly typed “Ahti” when I meant to type “Olsson”. I was interested in knowing why Baillargeon and Olsson were not going to be in Friday night’s line-up. Is it a discipline thing or are they injured or what?

    • Quinn was pretty vague yesterday. Still unsure about Olsson, but we learned today on Inside BU Hockey through goterriers.com that Coach Quinn et al just found out Baillargeon has mono. Could explain some of the struggles he’s had thus far this season.

  2. That’s too bad about Robbie B. I know that it can take a while to get rid of mono – yikes! I wonder if Olsson’s absence can be related to the game misconduct penalty he took? I know that Parker would sometimes choose to impose further penalties on a team member if and when he thought such a penalty was particularly undisciplined.
