Terriers spank Eagles, 5-0

Friday night, BU played a solid 58 minutes of hockey only to let a win slip away. Two nights later, BU played the full 60 and came away with dominating 5-0 win against #2 ranked Boston College in a nationally televised game at Conte Forum. Wade Megan led the scoring with a power play goal and a shorthander, while Corey Trivino, Alex Chiasson and Chris Connolly also had two-point games.

Trivino struck on a wrister from the high slot in the first minute of play, taking a drop pass from Sean Escobedo. Megan doubled the lead in the final minute of the first on BU’s first power play of the game. Midway through the second, Chiasson one-timed a laser past Parker Milner, again on the power play. Then Matt Nieto converted a Charlie Coyle centering pass from the crease for his team-leading seventh goal. Megan closed out the scoring late in the third on a breakaway with BU down a man.

Kieran Millan stopped all 21 BC shots en route to his second shutout of the season. Terrier took far too many penalties against the dangerous Eagles, but the penalty kill was superb, holding BC to 9 shots on 8 man-advantage opportunities while notching a shortie. For the Terriers, the only other negative was that the bus ride home was too short.

While Trivino, who missed Friday’s game with an ankle injury, returned to the lineup, BU played without Garrett Noonan, who also was nursing an ankle.

Looking back
Former BU captain John McCarthy scored a third-period goal—assisted by another former captain, Sean Sullivan—to bring Worcester even with Providence, but his former teammates, Dave Warsofsky and Colby Cohen, were the victors as the P-Bruins edged the IceCats, 3-2.

Looking ahead
2013 recruit Danny O’Regan is headed to the Tier 1 Midget Nationals with the Cape Cod Whalers U18s, who beat the GBL Bruins—and 2013 recruit Brendan Collier—in the Massachusetts Midget State Tournament championship game, 6-4. Former Terrier standout and Stanley Cup champ with Montreal Ed Ronan is one of three coaches for the Whalers’ whose roster includes his son, Corey, and former Terrier Mark Fidler’s sons, Mark and Trevor. We’ll post further details on the tournament's semifinal and final games when they’re available.

I totally agree with insights on that game and Hostpph blogger's insights too which are very similar to yours, BU played tremendously for 58 minutes and then they decrease their game intensity, they must have been tired
