The Boston University men’s hockey team unceremoniously bowed out in the National Semifinals against Minnesota, but the Terriers had no shortage of thrilling wins in Jay Pandolfo’s first year at the helm.
BU hung tough with the Golden Gophers, but it’s just about impossible to win when you spend more than 10 minutes killing penalties against an offensive juggernaut. Minnesota went 3-for-7 on the man-advantage, and BU was lucky it wasn’t 6-for-7 given the amount of offensive pressure the Gophers were able to generate on the power play.
Junior defenseman Cade Webber joined the BHB on Terrier Hockey Talk this week to discuss his journey to BU, developments this season and keys to success in the Frozen Four. Listen below!
Through a playing career that spanned over two decades, Boston University head coach Jay Pandolfo learned a lesson that has come to define his team: It hurts to win.
The Terriers showed what they’re made of tonight and battled until the final horn for the 2-1 win over Cornell University (21-11-2) that punched their ticket to Tampa. The Boston University men’s hockey team (29-10-0) is in the Frozen Four, and boy are they feeling good.
The Terriers won the Hockey East Championship Saturday night, but only got to revel in their victory for a couple of hours. With gameday versus the Western Michigan University Broncos just five days after their coronation, the Boston University men’s hockey team got back to work immediately, with eyes set on a much larger prize.
The Terriers play at breakneck speed, zipping past defenders in transition to create the odd-man rushes they feast on. Webber, BU’s bruising 6-foot-7 defenseman, would rather throw himself in front of a slapshot on the penalty kill than spring a 2-on-1 the other way.
The Terriers made their return to the TD Garden after having seemingly recovered from the malaise that was onset by the Beanpot. After a sketchy 60 minutes, BU found its game in overtime to beat the Providence College Friars 2-1.
Led by the buzzing junior forward Dylan Peterson, the Boston University men’s hockey team (21-10-0, 15-6-0 Hockey East) got their swagger back in a 5-3 victory over the University of Vermont Catamounts (9-17-5, 4-14-3 HE) tonight at Gutterson Fieldhouse.
