Wilson returns to Boston, scores first NHL goal

Former Terrier top scorer Colin Wilson picked a familiar place to register his first NHL goal last night: the TD Bank Garden in Boston where Wilson appeared in the Beanpot and Hockey East tournaments the past two seasons. The scoring play began with a heavy check by Wilson in his own end to cause a turnover and it finished with Wilson banging home a loose puck in the Bruins' crease (video). Wilson earned the game's third star, but the Bruins topped Nashville, 3-2.

After the game, The Daily Free Press spoke with Wilson, who noted, "it was pretty nice to get that first goal in front of all my buddies.”

Also last night, former BU All-American Mike Grier got the Sabres off to a fast start, beating former BC goalie Scott Clemmensen (video) just 1.11 into the first period, as the Buffalo dumped Florida, 5-2.

In the AHL, David Van der Gulik pick up a pair of assists in Abbotsfords' 5-3 win over Toronto. VDG has a 1-6-7 line in 8 games for the Heat.

Colorado Avs Director of Player Personnel David Oliver was at the BU-Notre Dame game and, appearing as a guest on The Pipeline Show, offered some comments on the Terriers performance and the three Avs draft picks playing for the Avs, Captain Kevin Shattenkirk, Colby Cohen and Kieran Millan.
