Terriers edge Maine on power play goal UPDATED

Sean Maguire’s second consecutive shutout and a Garrett Noonan power play goal lifted BU past Maine, 1-0, in BU’s final first-semester game. With the win, #7 BU moves to 10-5 overall and 8-4 in Hockey East and has won four of its past five games.

BU started fast and kept the puck in Maine’s end for nearly three minutes with several scoring chances.  Seven minutes in, Danny O’Regan set up Noonan for a slapper from the left circle, with Evan Rodrigues decoying in the high slot. Alexx Privitera also assisted.
Rodrigues was called for embellishment after being hooked by Brice O’Connor. It was a questionable call at best. Another questionable call gave Cason Hohmann a penalty shot in the second period, but his wrister was gloved by Martin Ouelette, who kept BU from breaking the game open.

Maguire, who earned first-star honors, made 28 saves for his third consecutive victory, which didn’t come easy. A five-minute major on BU with 5: 32 left in regulation made for a tense finish, but the Terriers held Maine to three shots during the extended power play.
Coach Jack Parker: “I thought the best we played was the last five minutes when were a man down,” Parker said. “I thought we played extremely well there.”

In its 10 wins, BU has yield no more than two goals in any game.

CHN's Scott McLaughlin tweeted that the last time a BU goalie had back-to-back shutouts was in Feb. 2007, by John Curry. (0-0 tie vs. Lowell, 4-0 vs. Northeastern)

Ex-Terriers Brandon Yip, Jay Pandolfo and Mike Grier signed autographed prior to last night's faceoff.

BU next takes the ice on Dec. 29, on the road in Denver to take on the Pioneers in the U.S. Hockey Hall of  Fame game.
