Terriers power past Eagles

Playing perhaps their best game of the season, the Terriers dominated BC, 5-2, to win the regular season series (2-0-1) and move into second place in Hockey East, four points behind Northeastern. After Eagle goalie John Muse held BU at bay in the first period, stopping 18 shots, the Scarlet scored on four of ten power plays and added one even-strength goal. BU outshot BC 46-21 and the Terriers attempted 81 shots. Photo credit--Justine Hunt/The Boston Globe.
  • USCHO's Scott Weighart, in his game recap, noted:

"One night after being benched by coach Jack Parker due to a lack of defensive focus, blueliner Colby Cohen went from doghouse to top dog, earning top star honors with a goal and an assist on top of a solid showing in his own end. "

We also have recaps from The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald and Hockey East Online. Detailed boxscore. Video highlights. We also have an audio file of Jack Parker's post-game remarks to the media below.

► Three stars:1. Colby Cohen, 2. David Warsofsky,3. John Muse

► Nine of Warsofsky's 14 assists have come in the last seven games.

► BU has four of the top eight HE defensemen in scoring: Cohen is tied for 2nd at 16; Matt Gilroy tied for 4th at 15; Warsofsky tied for 6th at 14; and, Kevin Shattenkirk 8th with 13

Nick Bonino’s 2nd-period power play goal ended a six-game goal-scoring drought. His last previous goal came on a lunging clear that found its way into an empty net in the waning seconds of the Dec. 6 win at BC.

Colin Wilson , who has a team-leading 26 points, was dominant on faceoffs winning 17 of 25 draws. Bonino won 8 of 12.

► The victory was Coach Jack Parker’s 797th career win and 71st against BC (71-55-12).

Looking ahead
2009 recruits Alex Chiasson and Max Nicastro went head-to-head last night with the latter's Chicago Steel winning, 4-3. Nicastro's assist gives him 23 points, second among all USHL defensemen and trailing only his teammate, John Moore, a Colorado College recruit. Chiasson continues to have a hot hand for Des Moine, scoring twice--his first multiple goal game for the struggling Bucs. The right winger from Quebec has taken over point leadership on Des Moines with 28.

Justin Courtnall contributed an assist and earned the game’s third star as Victoria doubled up Powell River, 4-2, in BCHL play.

Looking back
Former Terrier Matt Radoslovich scored twice on Friday to pace the ECHL Trenton Devils to a 3-2 win against Dayton. On the game-winning goal, he was assisted by former BU co-captain Chris Dyment.

The Patriot Ledger offers a feature article on the high school coaching careers of brothers Bob and Jim Sylvia. Bob Sylvia, who has been behind the Quincy High School bench for 43 seasons, was co-captain of Jack Kelley’s first winning team at BU. The 1964-65 team finished with a 25-6 record and began a 15-year period of dominance in Eastern hockey.
