3rd period rally pushes Rensselaer past BU

BU’s first semester schedule ended on a down note as a 3-2 lead over Rensselaer after two periods turned into a 5-3 loss that included an empty-net goal for the Engineers. The Terriers scored twice shorthanded—by Captain Kevin Shattenkirk and Assistant Captain Nick Bonino—sandwiched around Zach Cohen’s (photo) team-leading sixth goal on a power play. Six consecutive BU penalties—including Eric Gryba’s ten-minute misconduct—led to five Rensselaer power plays in the second and early third periods. BU killed all five, but the effort left the Terriers “legless” according to Coach Jack Parker in the final ten minutes when the Engineers tied the score and then took the lead. BU outshot its guests 35-25, but lost the faceoff battle, 33-19.

Holy Toledo!
Mike Eruzione, co-captain of the 1976-77 Terriers and captain of the 1980 U.S. Olympic team, visited the new Lucas County Arena in Toledo, home of the ECHL Walleye and recalled his days playing for the Toledo Goaldiggers in the old IHL. BU 2nd team All-American Bryan Ewing currently plays for the Walleye.

Looking back
Peter Yetten, a defensemen on BU’s first NCAA championship team and later the head football coach at Bentley College for 18 seasons until he retired in 2008, was named 58th recipient of the George C. Carens Award on Thursday night at the New England Football Writers’ Captains and Awards Banquet. Yetten, a three-sport standout at BU, also was quarterback on BU’s 1969 Pasadena Bowl football team that featured future NFLers Bruce Taylor, Fred Barry and Pat Hughes.

Looking ahead
2010 recruit Charlie Coyle scored his 11th goal of the season in the South Shore Kings' 4-3 overtime win over the Jersey Hitmen. Coyle is third in the EJHL in scoring with 40 points in 25 games.
