Nothing settled in 2-2 tie

Game one of the much anticipated clash between BU and Northeastern end up a 2-2 overtime tie. But for the Terriers who had grabbed a 2-0 first period lead, it was a less than satisfying game, especially to coach Jack Parker who didn't mince words: "We were unbelievably fortunate to get a point. We really dodged a bullet. That team outplayed us for the last forty minutes. I’ve got to give Northeastern a lot of credit. It’s easy to see why they’re in first place and we’re chasing them."

Commenting on the lost opportunity to move into first place in Hockey East, co-Captain Matt Gilroy, who assisted on the game’s first goal by Brandon Yip, was equally candid: "It’s human nature to get ahead of yourself when you’re up 2-0, but good teams don’t do that, especially down the stretch. We’ve got to get that out of our system.”

Colin Wilson had the other Terrier goal, increasing his Hockey East-leading points total to 41 (14-27).

We have recaps from, USCHO, Inside Hockey, The Boston Herald and The Boston Globe along with a detailed boxscore.

Tonight’s rematch at Matthews Arena is an 8:00 p.m. start. There is no broadcast television due to the termination of CN8 in Boston . The game will air on WWZN Radio and online.

Looking ahead
2009 recruit Justin Courtnall picked up two assists in Victoria’s 4-1 win over Nanaimo.

Looking back
Former Terriers Chris Bourque and David VanderGulik each scored their 14th goal of the season in AHL play. Bourque’s goal came in a 3-2 Hershey loss to Rochester and VDG’s in a 5-4 Quad City win over San Antonio.

Former All-American goalie John Curry ran his unbeaten streak to 11 games in a 3-1 Wilkes Barre/Scranton win over Syracuse , stopping 27 shots. Since his return for a brief NHL stint in Pittsburgh, Curry’s record is 19-3.
