RECAP: BU Beats BC in first installment of the Battle of Comm. Ave.

The third period was shaky as can be, but Boston University held on against Boston College on Friday night at Agganis Arena, earning a 2-1 in the process.

The scoring got underway in the second period, when Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson tipped home a shot from Dante Fabbro. BC answered right back, though, with Colin White banging home a power-play goal with ease.

Looking to regain the lead, Clayton Keller scored the ultimate game-winner as provided by Jordan Greenway. For a full recap of the night’s affairs, check out Jonathan’s recap over on The Daily Free Press.

Outside of the goalscorers, this game was always going to feature an elite battle of goaltenders. On one side it was BU’s Jake Oettinger, and on the other BC’s Joseph Woll. They both featured on Team USA’s 2017 World Junior Championship squad that last week secured a gold medal.

From The FreeP: BU beats Yale to close out 2016

While about 10 days remain until Christmas, the Boston University men’s hockey team handed its fans an early present to close out 2016.

Slated against the Yale University Bulldogs, BU skated comfortably to a 5-2 win. For a full recap of the night’s events, check out Jonathan’s game story over on The Daily Free Press.

The night’s first star – perhaps to the surprise of everyone in attendance – was sophomore defenseman Shane Switzer. He potted two goals in just his ninth collegiate game, and offered a steady presence along the blueline. Check out Nick’s story over on The Daily Free Press about the Michigan native.
