Game of firsts

Last night’s 2-1 win against Maine was BU’s first overtime victory of the year and put the Terriers over the .500 mark in conference play for the first time this season. Chris Higgins' shorthanded goal in the first period, BU’s first of the year while a man down, also was the team’s 100th goal, surpassing the 2006-07 season total of 99. Game highlights can be seen on the HockeyEastOnline Web site. The weekend series continues tonight when BU and Maine meet in a 7 p.m. start with coverage on CN8 and WWZN.
  • In a recent game, 2008 recruit Andrew Glass had three goals and four assists as Nobles & Greenough rallied from a 5-3 deficit for a wild, 8-6 win over Milton Academy. At that point Glass had 22 goals and 20 assists on the season. He added another goal this week in a win against BBN.
  • Another 2008 class forward, Chris Connolly, had a powerplay goal and a shorthander, too, in Omaha’s 7-2 win against Tri-City. Connolly’s 22 goals lead the Lancers and are third best in the USHL. He has logged 15 just penalty minutes this year, nine of which came in the season’s first game.
