Terrier race away from Friars, 6-1

Sophomore Adam Clendening’s three assists and a goal and an assist each from junior Alex Chiasson and second-year players Matt Nieto and Garrett Noonan powered #2/3 BU to a 6-1 thumping of Providence College at Agganis Arena. Terriers rode a four-goal first period to a commanding league and then added a pair of power play goals in the final period. Other goal scorers were Sahir Gill, Alexx Privitera, and Ryan Santana (first of the season) as BU drove Alex Beaudry, a Terrier nemesis in the past, from the cage. Kieran Millan stopped 36 shots in the victory.

With BU's 11th victory in the past 13 games, Coach Jack Parker now has 400 career wins in Hockey East play.

Clendening 12 points (1 goal, 11 assists) in his past five games. Chiasson’s goal gave him 20 points on the season.

Terriers won the faceoff battle, 32-26, with Gill and Ben Rosen having strong nights.
