5. Brown jumps out to an early lead
The Bears, who averaged only 1.6 goals per game heading into the contest, wasted almost no time getting on the board as captain and senior defenseman Zach Giuttari picked up his second score of the season just 3:44 into the game. Bradley Cocca dashed down the left wing before sending a feed for Giuttari, who looked to be tied up but was able to redirect the puck in on the doorstep.
4. Farrance ties it at 2-2 for BU
In the second, the Terriers turned defense into offense as Trevor Zegras picked up a turnover in the BU zone before leading the rush and feeding Farrance, who settled the puck and sent a fluttering wrister towards the goal, which deflected in off of Bears defenseman Luke Krys. The goal marked Farrance’s 11th of the season, which is four goals clear of the next highest goal total among Division I defensemen.
3. Tucker keeps it 2-1 on the penalty kill
Graduate netminder Sam Tucker had a shaky first period, allowing two goals on three shots, but had a flawless second period to bounce back as he stopped all 15 shots he faced in the middle frame. Tucker made a key save with Brown on the power play, going into the splits to stop Michael Mahoney’s rebound chance right in front of the crease.
2. Harper collects his 100th point as a Terrier
Patrick Harper and Trevor Zegras combined for some dazzling plays during tonight’s game, but Harper’s slick feed on Zegras’ goal was the best of the bunch. The senior assistant captain sent a spinning no-look pass to the freshman, who roofed it blocker-side. The assist marked Harper’s 100th point (35g, 65a) in the scarlet and white.
1. Skoog wins it in overtime
New addition Wilmer Skoog had a strong first competitive game for BU, highlighted by his overtime game-winner for his first collegiate goal. Freshman forward Robert Mastrosimone had a dangerous chance against netminder Gavin Nieto, who could not control the rebound. Ethan Phillips collected the puck and sent a cross-ice pass to Skoog, who one-timed it home to win the game.
