Linkorama: Davenport, McEachern enter BU Hall of Fame

Two former winners of BU’s George V. Brown Award for Most Valuable Player were inducted into the BU Athletics Hall of Fame this past Sunday. Larry Davenport (photo) was co-MVP in 1969-70, and Shawn McEachern was MVP in 1990-91. An upcoming blog post will look back at the careers of these two high-scoring Terrier centermen.

Lancers win USHL's Clark Cup

2008 recruit Chris Connolly finished his season with an on-ice celebration as Omaha beat Waterloo 4-3 in overtime to win the USHL’s Clark Cup Championship. Connolly finished the regular season as the Lancers second leading scorer with 55 points and led the team in goals with 26. He added eight points during Omaha’s playoff run. In 59 regular season games, Connolly totaled just 17 penalty minutes, with 9 coming in the season opener back in September.

The last Terrier recruit to play for a Clark Cup champion? 2007-08 Terrier captain and MVP Pete MacArthur, then playing for Waterloo, along with a trio that head to UNH: Kevin Regan, Matt Fornataro and Mike Radja.

Blanking the Pirates
John Curry posted his first AHL playoff shut out on as Wilkes Barre-Scranton blanked Portland 2-0 Wednesday night in the first game of the AHL Eastern Conference finals. Curry stopped 19 shots. Game two will be played tonight.

On the brink
Ryan Whitney’s second career playoff goal (video) put the Pittsburgh Penguins on the board first in Tuesday’s game 3 of the AHL Eastern Conference finals. The Pens, now 11-1 in the playoffs, beat Philadelphia 4-1 and are just one win from the Stanley Cup finals. Game four will be played tonight.
