Huskies trip BU; Terriers face must-win game tonight

Failure to capitalize on power play opportunities and a pair of goals that deflected off defensemen helped doom BU in last night’s 4-2 loss to Northeastern in the opening game of the Hockey East quarterfinal round. BU is faced with a must-win challenge tonight, and if successful, will face the same situation in game three on Sunday.

Less than a minute after yielding a power play goal to Northeastern in the first period, Justin Courtnall (photo) shoveled home his second of the season to knot the score at one apiece. But the Huskies regained the lead late in the period and extended it to 4-1 with a pair in the second period. Terriers outshot Northeastern 15-7 in the final period – and 37-30 for the game— but their only tally was a Ryan Ruikka power play goal. BU had 16:36 in power play time and registered 19 of its shots with the man advantage, but only converted once.
