Terriers rebound and double up UNH--UPDATED

In a game in which they played better and better as the contest progressed, BU rode four second-period goals to a 4-2 win over New Hampshire and earned a split of the weekend series. Junior goalie Grant Rollheiser (photo) was a standout, stopping 41 shots. BU, trailing by 1-0, entering the middle period, got goals from Matt Nieto, Adam Clendening –his first—Alex Chiasson and Sahir Gill. Chiasson with a goal and an assist and Corey Trivino with two helpers were the only multiple point scorers.

Terriers won the faceoff battle 39-27, with Charlie Coyle and Wade Megan putting up strong numbers. The one negative note was a broken finger suffered by junior wing Chris Connolly, who will miss the rest of the first semester.

The problem with the BU powerplay is the pointmen are passing up too many potential shots. Get the puck on net and good things can happen, like rebounds and deflections. Those generate many more good chances than trying to make the perfect play.
In general, this team could shoot more often. It's nice to be unselfish, but you don't score without shooting.
