Terriers roar back to nip Maine, 4-3-- UPDATED

Terriers gained an important two points in the conference race with a come-from-behind 4-3 win at Alfond Arena. BU did it the hard way, falling behind 3-1 midway through second period, then scoring three straight. Junior assistant David Warsofsky (photo) ripped a shot from the high slot early in the third period that proved the game-winner.

BU had taken a first-period lead when Max Nicastro sent Corey Trivino in alone and he converted his fifth goal of the season. After three Maine scores in rapid succession produced a two-goal lead for the hosts, Terriers came back on Alex Chiasson’s ninth goal of the season and Wade Megan’s sixth in a 30-second span.

Despite giving up a few goals on shots he felt he should have handled, Kieran Millan stopped a bushel of grade chances and turned in another strong effort with 34 saves to earn first-star honors. Chaisson was BU’s only multiple-point scorer with a goal and an assist. Trivino, in addition to his goal, had a strong night on faceoffs with several key wins in the third period.

Looking back
The Medford Transcript offers a feature and Q&A with Jack Garrity, one of first of many standout skaters from that Massachusetts town to play for BU. Inducted recently into the Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame, Garrity was a two-time All-American for BU, leading the team to its first two NCAA Final Fours, as well as an U.S. Olympian. In 1949-50, he set an NCAA single-season scoring record with 51 goals and 33 assists. Garrity later coached at Medford High School and Archbishop Williams and was an on-ice official at multiple levels. In April 2009, at the request of BU Coach Jack Parker, he flew to Washington, D.C., to address the Terriers on the eve of the Frozen Four that resulted in BU’s fifth national championship.

John Curry stopped 28 shots in Wilkes Barre/Scranton’s 4-1 win over Albany.

Looking ahead

Cason Hohmann registered a pair of assists in Cedar Rapids' 5-4 OT loss to the U.S. NTDP U18s. He now has 31 points in 29 games this season.

Women's team

The Terriers extended their winning streak to twelve games, scoring twice in the third-period to earn a hard-fought 2-1 victory over UConn at Walter Brown Arena. Catherine Ward tied the score at 1-1 early in the final period and leading scorer Marie-Philip Poulin''s 22nd of the year midway through the period provided the difference. Captain Holly Lorms assisted on both goals. Alissa Fromkin stopped 16 shots for the win.
