Terriers drop 3-1 decision to Michigan State

No, this isn’t a re-run.

BU wasted a strong goaltending performance and, after holding a 1-0 lead, yielded two quick scored in the latter part of the third period, and dropped a 3-1 decision to Michigan State. Sean Maguire stopped 30 of the 32 shots he faced, with 11 coming during power plays.

Terriers took the lead late in the first period on Matt Lane’s first goal of the season of a Cason Hohmann pass and Doyle Somerby’s first college assist. Despite taking 13 shots in the second period, BU couldn’t extend the lead.

Terriers clung to the slim lead through most of the final period, but with just over four minutes remaining, the Spartans’ Brent Darnell banged home a rebound. Fifty-two seconds later, Joe Cox jammed home the game-winner. MSU added an empty-netter with four seconds left in the game.

Head Coach David Quinn told the Daily Free Press: “We took a step back this weekend. We were moving forward, I think we’ve been progressing, and just a huge step back this weekend. It’s just frustrating because I really like what I’ve seen the first three weeks.”
