Dainton, UMass ruin BU opener

Eleven month after dealing the Terriers their second and last road loss of the 2008-09 season, the UMass Minutemen again used timely scoring and strong goaltending by Paul Dainton to upend BU at the Mullin Center in Amherst, 3-2. UMass scored the only goal of the third period, despite being outshot 16-4 in the period and 41-26 for the game.

For the Terriers, besides not having to return to Amherst again this season, the positives were led by freshman Alex Chiasson scoring a pair of goals in his first college game and a strong overall game from the third line of Corey Trivino, Wade Megan and Chiasson.

We have a recaps from, Hockey East Online , College Hockey News, and and a comprehensive boxscore. The Boston Hockey Blog provides post-game notes and coach’s comments, as well as Sarah Gordon's photo gallery photo gallery.

►Remember that state from last season—that BU never lost a game in which Nick Bonino had at least one point? It still applies as the junior center was kept off the scoresheet, despite taking seven shots.

► Freshman defenseman Sean Escobedo's first period slapper hit the crossbar and dropped behind Dainton, but a video review showed the puck had not crossed the goal line.

Looking ahead
2011 recruit defenseman Alexx Privitera scored his second goal of the season in the NTDP U17s' 4-2 loss to Sioux City in USHL play.
