2nd period outburst propels BU past Lowell, 5-1

Five different Terriers found the back of the net and a total of 10 found the score sheet as BU powered past Lowell 5-1 as Tsongas Arena. Sophomore Alex Chaisson and freshman Sahir Gill scored shorthanded goals while Corey Trivino, Chris Connolly and Charlie Coyle had even strength scores. But it was goalie Kieran Millan (Millan) with 27 saves on 28 shots who earned the game’s first star as the junior netminder continued his strong play in goal.
