BC updends Terriers in high-scoring game

Scoring twice in the game’s opening minutes and once late in the first period, BC seized control of last night’s first meeting of the season between the Terriers and their archrivals and dominated the first 40 minutes en route to a 9-5 win before a sold-out Agganis Arena.

The silver linings for the Terriers were very few. One was that the power play got untracked somewhat with 3 goals in 15 attempts. Also three players who had been a bit snake-bit lately, Matt Nieto, Andrew Glass and Max Nicastro (photo) all scored for BU. Nicastro's goal was his first of the season.

Kieran Millan, who gave up three first-period goals on 13 shots, was relieved by Grant Rolleheiser, who played the final 40 minutes.

Last night’s game aside, sophomore Alex Chiasson is thoroughly enjoying his hockey and academic experience at BU, describing it for James D’Amanda in an installment of USHL Alumni Voices. The St. Augustin, Quebec, native led BU freshmen scorers last season with 19 points and is the co-leader this year with 13 points, tied with Sahir Gill and David Warsofsky.

Looking back
Kevin Shattenkirk’s scoring streak reached eight games with his assist on Colorado’s lone goal in a 2-1 loss to Carolina.

Looking ahead
2011 recruit Cason Hohmann scored the overtime game-winner in Cedar Rapids' 3-2 win against Chicago. Hohmann has eight goals in 13 games on just 33 shots for a .242 percentage.

2013 recruit Matt Grzelczk assisted on the NTDP U17s' first goal in a 4-3 shootout win against Lincoln. The defenseman has four points--all assists--on the season.

Prospect watch

Lac St. Louis defenseman Michael Mattheson , a top prospect from Quebec, who visited BU during the Oct. 30 game against Lowell, talked with The Hockey News about his decision to play college hockey rather than Major Junior. He has narrowed his choices to BU, BC, Northeastern and Vermont.
