Ben Rosen stretched the lead with a goal five and a half minutes into the third, but that’s when the Vermont comeback began with a goal just a minute later and then a pair within 32 seconds midway through the period. Terrier defensive lapses led to at least two of the goals.
The tie prevented the Terriers from moving into a third-place tie with Merrimack, which lost at Maine. BU now trails second-place BC by three points. Terriers need at least one point in tonight’s rematch with the Cats to clinch home ice for the Hockey East playoffs. Game time is 6:30 p.m. and it will again air on NESN.
