While Frozen Fenway was pushed back an extra day due to a Boston-area storm, the event still proved fruitful for BU.

Pegged against the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the Terriers rode through plenty of ups and downs to emerge victorious, 5-3, on Sunday. By the afternoon’s end, four different skaters found the scoresheet, and freshman goaltender Jake Oettinger made 26 saves.

The stars of the day, though, were sophomore forward Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson and sophomore defenseman Charlie McAvoy. The former scored twice, giving him five goals in the last two games, while the latter added a tally on the power play. They were by and far BU’s best players against UMass.

The win pushed BU’s record in Frozen Fenway competition to 2-1, while the squad now is riding a four-game winning streak. Those figures bode well for the Terriers, especially in light of the upcoming home-and-home set against Boston College.

Rivalry week is upon us, Terrier fans.

  1. Solid effort today. Now a good week of practice and two good games against bc and this team will be on its way. ?

  2. Beating BC twice? tall order. they got a real good goalie in Woll and a few good snipers: white, fitzgerald, cangelosi etc. if we take stupid penalties, we will be on the short end

    i would just love to see us beat them at the Gannis.it seems like they always jump on us early, get a lead, and then we play catch up.even happened when we had Eichel. Our record against them at home is embarrassing. Not sure why that is. any thoughts about that?

    • I don’t think I’ve ever been able to put a finger on why BU’s record vs. BC at Agganis has been putrid. Since Agganis opened, BU’s record vs BC is:

      Home: 3-11-2
      Away: 7-7-1
      Neutral: 7-8-0

    • Yes Vinnie, TWICE! Oettinger allows one (power play) goal in 120 minutes of hockey against BC. So far, so good!
