The Terriers overcame Harvard 5-2 on Tuesday night at Agganis Arena. Here are the top five moments I picked out from the game.
5. Crotty adds on in the third
Cam Crotty made the BU lead three in the early stages of the third period, stepping into space and ripping a laser into the back of the net. It was the junior’s second goal of the season and made the comeback bid that much more difficult for the Crimson.
4. Mastrosimone and Phillips link up
Making something out of nothing, Ethan Phillips took the puck towards the corner of the offensive zone and weaved past a Crimson defender. Robert Mastrosimone His shot caromed in off fellow first-year Robert Mastrosimone, notching what was likely the easiest of his three goals this season.
3. Walsh answers shorthanded
With the arena buzzing following BU’s opening goal, Reilly Walsh silenced the crowd with a shorthanded tally to knot the game up less than three minutes in. Rushing into the BU end, Walsh drove to the goalmouth and deposited the short-range feed from Nathan Krusko past Sam Tucker.
2. Zegras ends the drought
BU hadn’t scored for seven periods leading up to Tuesday’s contest, but Trevor Zegras put a quick end to the goal drought by lighting the lamp 1:21 in. Working on the forecheck, Patrick Harper stripped a Crimson defender and Zegras was right there to roof it for his fifth goal of the season.
1. Patrick Curry unloads six-on-five
With the referee’s arm raised, BU sent an extra skater on and cycled the puck until Patrick Curry fired away on a cross-ice pass from David Farrance. The score made BU’s lead 3-1 towards the end of the second period, giving the captain his tenth goal of the season and BU their eventual game-winner.
BU will conclude their week of Boston rivalry games when they host No. 8/12 Northeastern on Saturday night.
