River Hawks turn tables on BU

The Terriers’ two-game winning streak was halted as UMass-Lowell reversed Friday night’s verdict with a 3-2 win at Agganis Arena. BU took three first-period penalties and paid the price as the River Hawks took a 1-0 lead into the second period. BU tied the score on Vinny Saponari’s (photo) first goal of the season, a second after a power play ended. Lowell answered a minute later, then stretched the lead to two before Captain Kevin Shattenkirk’s power play blast made it 3-2 Lowell, the same score after two as on Friday night.

But this time there would be no third-period heroics. BU unleashed seven shots on two power plays and outshot Lowell 11-3, allowing just one even-strength shot in the final stanza, but Nevin Hamilton turned the Terriers away to secure the win for the River Hawks. BU struggled again on faceoffs with Lowell enjoying a wide margin and the Terrier defense recap. USCHO recap. Comprehensive boxscore. Coach Parker text comments, as well as audio.

Looking ahead
2010 recruit Yasin Cissè scored his first USHL hattrick in Des Moines’ 5-2 win against Green Bay. The 6-3, 208 winger from Quebec scored a power play goal, an unassisted goal and an empty-netter.
