Weekend Roundup: Denver and Providence Games

The No. 6 Boston University men’s hockey team fell to both of its opponents, the No. 1 University of Denver and No. 11 Providence College, over the weekend.

On Friday at Agganis Arena, Denver proved its dominance early with two tallies in the first four minutes of the game. Freshman forward Ty Amonte’s first goal of the season and another power-play goal from junior forward and assistant captain Bobo Carpenter in the same period tied the score.

However, another strike late in the 1st period from Pioneers forward Colin Staub gave them a 3-2 lead Denver would keep until sophomore defenseman Dante Fabbro evened the score more than halfway through the final period. As the game appeared like it would go into overtime, Pioneers forward Troy Terry squashed those quells by finding the back of the net with 16.1 seconds remaining.

The following night, the Terriers were unable to match Providence’s pace and physicality for the 60-minute matchup, but kept the Friars off the board in the first frame and neither players from each team were sent to the penalty box. Much of this changed in the second period, as Providence got on the board three times and BU’s performance began to decrease as they searched for a goal.

Quinn said, in the post-game press conference after the Terriers’ loss to the Friars, that his young team was likely still feeling the previous night’s defeat and carried it into the following matchup. Although, BU has a chance to redeem itself as it hosts Providence again next Friday at Agganis and will see its crosstown competitor No. 20 Northeastern University there the following night.

The No. 6 Boston University men’s hockey team split its first Hockey East home-and-home series against the University of Connecticut. On both nights, junior forward and assistant captain Bobo Carpenter, who came into the series with no goals, scored for the Terriers first.

On Friday, Carpenter found the back of the net twice during the second period, both on a pair of BU penalty kills. However, the stellar performance was not enough and UConn’s two power-play goals kept the contest at a 2-2 draw after 65 minutes.

On Saturday at the XL Center in Hartford, Carpenter continued his success with a hat-trick while sophomore forward Patrick Curry, and senior defenseman and captain Brandon Hickey each got their first goals of the season.

The Terriers’ next matchup will be against the No. 1 University of Denver on Friday night at Agganis Arena and then they will travel to play No. 11 Providence College on Saturday night.

From the FreeP: Minnesota State Series Roundup

The No. 2 Boston University men’s hockey team was swept by the Minnesota State University this weekend at Agganis Arena. The Terriers’ former goaltender Connor LaCouvee, who played with BU for three seasons, returned to Boston, but in the opposing team’s net.

While LaCouvee only allowed three goals in the Mavericks’ 6-3 victory, BU’s defense gave up 45 shots, and sophomore goaltender Jake Oettinger’s 39 saves and freshman forward Shane Bowers’ two-goal night could not mitigate the damages of the team’s poor play.

On Saturday, the team responded better, but was unable to match Minnesota State’s physicality particularly around the puck battles and also could not convert on its four power play opportunities. The Mavericks sealed the two-game series with a 3-0 shutout.

BU’s next matchup will be its Hockey East opener against University of Connecticut in a home-and-home series beginning with a game at Agganis on Friday night at 7:30.
