Pereira's pair paces 4-3 win in Ice Breaker

After yielding a pair of goals in a nine-second span and trailing 3-2 after one period, the Terriers blanked Wisconsin the rest of the way and earned a hard-fought 4-3 win in the opening round of the Ice Breaker. BU, who will face Notre Dame Sunday in the tournament championship game, got a pair of goals, including the game-winner on a breakaway, from senior co-captain Joe Pereira and one each from Dave Warsofsky and Charlie Coyle.

BU survived some defensive lapses in the third period--as well as a disallowed Badger goal--with goalie Kieran Millan turning away several point blank shots to nail down the win. Millan stopped 24 shots during the game, including nine in the final stanza.

  • Periera accounted for seven of BU's 32 shots on goal. Warsofsky and Coyle each had four.
  • Terriers dominated the Badgers on faceoffs, winning 39 of 66. Coyle and fellow freshman Sahir Gill were a combined 25-9 on draws.
  • Gill's perfect tape-to-tape pass sprung Pereira for the game-winner three minutes into the third period. Justin Courtnall registered his first college point on the play with the second assist.
