The Terriers eked out a 2-1 win over the Riverhawks of UMass-Lowell tonight, needing some late heroics to do so. After the game remained scoreless well into the 3rd period, UMass-Lowell took the lead thanks to a goal by Joseph Pendenza. However, with less than 4 minutes remaining and BU with an extra attacker with a penalty pending to the Riverhawks, sophomore forward Alex Chiasson found the back of the net to knot the game at one goal apiece. Finally, with 27.5 seconds left in regulation, co-captain Chris Connolly (pictured) redirected a pass from fellow junior David Warsofsky to give the Terriers a late lead they would not relinquish.
Grant Rollheiser got the start in net for tonight's game and played well, stopping 24 of the 25 shots he faced. BU's record is now 6-0-1 overall (4-0-1 in Hockey East). The Terriers' next opponent will be the Maine Black Bears, at Agganis Arena next Saturday.
