Megan goal ties up Brown

A slow start in the first period and a strong performance from Brown goalie Mike Clemente were two obstacles the Terriers overcame in gaining a come-from-behind tie with Brown, 4-4 in overtime, despite outshooting the Bears, 42-43 and having some grade A chance late in the third period and in the extra stanza.

BU's fifth tie of the season and it's fourth on home ice didn't sit too well with Coach Jack Parker who commented "I have a closet full of ties; I’ve got enough ties.”

The good news was that BU came back from 2-0 deficit; the bad news was not closing out a game the Terriers led 3-2 late in the second period. As USCHO's Scott Weighart put it, "It was the best of ties, it was the worst of ties."
Sophomore Ben Rosen (photo) scored his first career goal in the first period, which was followed by goals from Joe Pereira and Alex Chiasson in the second period. Wade Megan's third-period marker knotted the score at four apiece.

The Terriers, who will meet Brown again in the Shillelagh Tournament in Chicago on New Year's Day, return to conference play with the annual December home-and-home series against arch-rival Boston College. Both games will air on CBS College Sports.
