BU-UM rematch on tap

Just two hours to go before game two of this series between the Terriers and Wolverines. Thus far, we have no information on the status of forward Pete McArthur, injured late in the 3rd period last night. Tonight's game, which begins at 8:30 p.m. ET, is being broadcast by CN8 in New England. You also can watch online at CN8 Live or listen on WWZN and use the online gametracker via the links on the BU athletics Web site.

Last night, the Wolverine's second goal was a key turning point, a combination of a little puck luck and a smart,quick reaction. Netminder Brett Bennett looked well positioned to defend a shot by a UM forward, who fanned on the shot. Everyone froze for a split second, except Palushaj who took a few strides and fired. BU narrowed the two-goal lead twice, but could get no closer. Despite the four goals against, Bennett was strong in goal with several acrobatic saves.

There weren't too many comments from Jack Parker on Friday's 4-2 loss in the USCHO recap or the official BU game recap, buty ou can see the two Terrier goals scored by Jason Lawrence and Dan McGoff. However, CSTV's Elliott Olshansky blog post captured some of the coach's thoughts about the strong effort put forth by the Terriers and the continued difficulty in finding the back of the net.

You can read a few more of Olshansky's in-game posts here and the details of his journey from Boston to Ann Arbor in a convoy of Dog Pounders here.
