Sister-kisser on Valentine's Day

It was a different script in last night's Valentine's Day rematch with Maine in Orono, which ended in a 2-2 overtime tie. A more competitive Black Bears team took a 2-0 lead, scoring both goals during a 62-second span in the second period. BU responded quickly on John McCarthy's 4th goal of season. Terriers outshot Maine, 11-3 in the final period, and tied the score when Nick Bonino converted the rebound of his own initial shot for his 11th goal. BU held a shot advantage in the overtime, but couldn't notch a game-winner.

Goalie Grant Rollheiser, making his first start since Jan. 13, stopped 19 shots. He also played the final 12:31 of Friday's game.

The three-point weekend, combined with Northeastern's loss last night to UMass, brought #1-ranked BU within a point of the first-place Huskies in the Hockey East standings, going into next weekend's home-and-home with the Huntingdon Hounds. Recaps of all of last night's conference action are here.

We have recaps from, The Boston Globe and the Maine Sunday Telegram, along with a detailed boxscore.

Thanks to blog contributor Candycanes99, we have a highlights video from Friday night's win, as well as a video from Saturday's tie.

Newsday joined the parade of media recounting Matt Gilroy's decision to forego the NHL to play his senior season at BU.
