Terriers edge River Hawks in OT

Last season, BU went to overtime five times but didn’t register an overtime win until its 45th and final game. This season, it took just four games to produce a “walk-off winner.” Once again, it came off the stick of blueliner Colby Cohen, as the Terriers scored last to take a 5-4 seesaw contest win over UMass-Lowell.

A 2-1 BU lead in the second period turned into a 3-2 deficit by the end of that period. After Zach Cohen knotted the score early in the third, David Warsofsky’s (photo) second goal of the night, off an Andrew Glass feed, gave BU its third lead of the evening. Lowell responded once again late in the period to send the contest to overtime. Halfway through the extra period, Joe Pereira , hero of last week's Michigan win, drew a penalty. Coach Jack Parker, looking for the knockout punch, added a wrinkle to the BU power play positioning Warsofsky, who was the game’s first star, at left wing on Chris Connolly's line. With 1:06 remaining, Colby Cohen fired a shot just inside the left post, assisted by Captain Kevin Shattenkirk. After giving up 31 shots in the first two periods, BU tightened its defense and yielded just 5 shots the rest of the way. recap. Comprehensive boxscore.
