Terriers fall at New Hampshire--UPDATED

#11 Terriers dropped a 4-1 decision to #15 New Hampshire last night. BU scored on its first shot of the game as Captain Wade Megan (photo) one-timed a perfect centering pass from Evan Rodrigues. After that, the Wildcats’ Casey DeSmith turned away 24 BU shots. The hosts took the lead with two goals within 18 seconds midway through the first period and added a pair in the middle period.

Turnovers and tight checking by UNH plagued BU particularly in the final two periods. Freshman goalie Sean Maguire had a rough initial start and was replaced by Matt O’Connor midway through the game.

After the game, Coach Jack Parker said:

“I thought we played pretty well in the first period, despite being down 2-1. We got on our heels when UNH scored early in the second and we got out of sync. We were missing on passes everywhere. We didn’t create any pressure on them from the second half of them game on. DeSmith played well when he needed and we missed the net a few times.”

Looking ahead
2013 recruit Brendan Collier scored a goal and two assists in the Valley Junior Warriors' 6-3 win against the Islanders. Collier is the Warriors leading scorer with a 6-8-14 line in 13 EJHL games.
New England Hockey Journal feature on the Warriors "Dream Line" talked with Warriors coach Andy Heinze about Collier, who was drafted by Carolina in the 2012 NHL draft. Noting Collier's "tremendous vision and feel for the game," Heinze added:
"He’s just such a smart player, and he’s talented enough to score at this level, I would expect him to do the same at BU. He is that good.” 

Women’s Team
#3 Terriers lost to #2 Cornell, 5-2, in the program’s first-ever evening game at Agganis Arena before a record crowd for the women’s of 1,891. BU took a 2-1 lead six minutes into the second period on goals by Marie-Philip Poulin and Jill Cardella, but the Big Red scored a pair of short-handed goals midway through the period. The visitors added an even-strength goal late in the third, followed by an empty-netter.
