Terriers Defeat Huskies, 4-3 -- UPDATED

BU overcame a 2-0 first period deficit, scoring four straight goals and finishing with a 4-3 victory tonight at Matthews Arena against Northeastern. Junior forward Wade Megan paced the Terriers with two goals, and Kieran Millan stopped 31 of 34 shots.

The Huskies opened the scoring in the first period, with first two even-strength strikes from Alex Tuckerman and Ludwig Karlsson. BU answered in the second period with 3 goals less than 4 minutes apart. Adam Clendening's second goal of the season and Megan's first of the night collectively even the score at two apiece. To cap the second period scoring came the first collegiate tally for Terrier freshman Evan Rodrigues (photo), on the power play. In the third period, Wade Megan's second goal of the night and 10th of the season gave BU a two-goal lead. The Huskies managed to pull within a goal late in the game with a power play and extra attacker, garnering an assist for former Terrier Vinny Saponari, but BU came away with the win.

The next game for the Terriers will be tomorrow night against Harvard at Bright Hockey Center, 7 pm. Harvard will be fresh off a 2-0 loss to Union during the Frozen Fenway event tonight.

Looking ahead

The USA U-18 team was defeated 4-3 by the Indiana Ice of the USHL, but future Terriers on both sides had a hand in the final score, as Matthew Lane scored a goal for Team USA and Robert Polesello and Robbie Baillargeon each had a helper for Indiana.

Meanwhile, 2012 goaltending recruit Matthew O'Connor and Youngstown fell 2-1 to the USA U-17 team, despite him saving 33 of 35 shots on the night.

Looking back

Adrian Aucoin's 2nd goal of the season didn't stop the Coyotes from falling 4-3 to Columbus, but it did confuse the play-by-play guy.

I think it was a rather solid and well played game by Terriers and that, according to Host Pay Per Head bloggers's opinion, was the key in the victory
