Pando rocks The Rock

A possible answer to the Terriers’ scoring woes: feed them whatever Jay Pandolfo had for dinner before Wednesday night’s game against Tampa Bay at the new Prudential Center.

Pando’s first pro hattrick got the Devils’ struggling offense untracked in a 6-1 win (video link in game recap). The 1995-96 BU captain scored on a goalmouth pass, a hard wrister from the left circle and a nifty deflection of a slapshot. He also assisted on a goal by longtime linemate, John Madden. Pandolfo was on fire all night generating six shots on goal, with two shorthanded bids barely turned away. As Pando’s point total grew (he’s currently the Devil’s top goal scorer), commentator Glenn Resch reminded viewers that Jay had scored 38 goals in 40 games as a BU senior. That total, third best in Terrier history, included five hattricks, one entirely shorthanded. And now he’s in the Devils’ record book with the first hattrick at The Rock.

The one future Terrier we’ve yet to report on this season is 2008 class left wing Andrew Glass who will play his final prep season for Nobles. Until the prep schedule begins, he’s been playing for the Cape Cod Whalers in the Massachusetts U18 Select Midget League and, according to one report, is “playing great hockey with a 3-6-9 line in five games.”

Fellow 2008 recruit Vinny Saponari’s eight points make him co-leading scorer of the NTDP U18s.
