Terriers whiff at the Whitt

Terriers dropped the first game of its weekend pair with New Hampshire, 4-2, in Durham. Penalties and special teams play proved BU’s undoing as UNH scored two power play goals—one on a two-man advantage—while BU managed just four shots on goal in five power plays.

The game marked the return of Alex Chiasson to the lineup and David Warsofsky's first full game at forward. Neither figured in the scoring. Goal scorers for BU were Zach Cohen, off a faceoff win by Corey Trivino, and Ross Gaudet, who converted a rebound of a Luke Popko shot. Cohen (photo) earned third-star honors. One silver lining for BU was improved faceoff results, winning 38 of 62 draws.

The teams play again tonight at Agganis Arena. USCHO’s Scott Weighart, author of “Burn The Boats,” will be autographing copies of the book prior to the game and between the periods near the concession stand.

Looking ahead
Yasin Cisse’s goal-scoring streak reached four games –and 7 goals in the past 8 games—in Des Moines’ 6-4 win over Fargo on Thursday night. Cisse added an assist, bringing his season total to 8-2-10 in 12 games.

After a slow start, 2011 recruit Cason Hohmann has adjusted to the speed of USHL play. The 5-7 playmaker who tallied just one assist in his first five games for Cedar Rapids, now has added 2 goals and 6 assists in the past 10 games.
