Clawed by the Cats

Burlington proved to be an inhospitable venue for the Terriers on the first day of their long weekend in Vermont, as the Catamounts scored early and often in a 7-3 win. BU drew to within 4-2 in the second period, but the Cats pulled away in the final period and capped the win with an empty-net goal. BU goals came from Zach Cohen -13th, tying him for the team lead--David Warsofsky and Vinny Saponari. Grant Rollheiser relieved a bombarded Kieran Millan in the third period.

The disappointing effort left the Terriers tied for fourth place in Hockey East with Northeastern and UMass-Lowell with three games left on the conference schedule. recap and box score

Looking ahead
2011 recruit Cason Hohmann registered his first two-goal game of the season in Cedar Rapids's 6-1 win over Youngstown. Hohmann has an 8-22-30 scoring line in 45 games.

Looking back
David VanderGulik scored his ninth goal of the season and added a shootout goal in Abbottsford's 5-4 win over Worcester in AHL play. John McCarthy picked up an assist for Worcester.

Kevin Schaeffer, recently return to Charlotte after an PTO with Harford, scored his third goal of the season in the Checkers' 2-1 win against the Cincinnati Cyclones in ECHL action.

Olympic Update
Chris Drury and Ryan Whitney are assured of joining the list of Terrier Olympic medal winners following the USA's 6-1 win against Finland in the medal round semifinals. They'll go for gold tomorrow afternoon against tournament host and favorite Canada. Drury will be the second Terrier to earn two Olympic medals and has an opportunity to match Dick Rodeneheiser who won a silver in 1956 and a gold in 1960 as part of America's "first miracle."
