Terriers notch first road win

The Terriers earned their fifth goal in six starts last night, 7-2 over Vermont in Burlington. BU was clinging to a one-goal lead late in the middle stanza when senior Brandon Yip (photo) scored off a clean faceoff win by sophomore Nick Bonino, who co-leads all conference players with eleven points. Three goals in the final period sealed the win. Yip also nailed Catamount forward Peter Lenes with an apparently clean open-ice hit, but drew a penalty anyway. Colin Wilson got the Terriers off to a fast start with a pair of goals in the first period.

We have links to game recaps from USCHO, Hockey East Online and College Hockey News. The BU athletics recap noted a milestone achievement on the defensive side of the puck. "With the 7-2 final, the Terriers have held their first six opponents to two goals or less - a feat that never happened in the program's previous 87 seasons."
