Bear clawed

BU suffered its worst loss since the 1994-95 season as it was thoroughly thumped by Maine, 7-0, at Alfond Arena. The Black Bears got on the board midway through the first period on a sharp angle shot by Devin Shore that got between Sean Maguire and the post. Maine doubled the lead late in the period on a two man advantage.

They broke the game open in the second period with three goals including a shorthander and a second power play goal. Matt O’Connor relieved Maguire after Maine’s third goal. Maine added two more in the third period including Brian Morgan’s second of the night. BU matched Maine’s 34 shots on goal, but Martin Ouellette stopped them all.

Looking ahead
2015 recruit Maxim Letunov’s hat trick propelled Youngstown to a 5-3 win against Muskegon. The left-shot center scored in the first period, then added a pair of power play goals—including the game-winner—in the middle period. Letunov had scored four goals and eight assists in the team’s previous 16 games. 2014 recruit J.J. Piccinich contributed two assists for the Phantoms. Both future Terriers now have 15 points.

Not to be outdone, 2014 recruit Jack Eichel also tallied a hat trick and added a pair of assists as the NTDP U18s outgunned the Green Bay Gamblers, 8-5.  The center from Chelmsford, Mass., who has been wielding a hot stick since returning from an early-season injury, scored on a power play, shorthanded (unassisted) and even strength for his second hat trick in the last 10 games.  He has 12 goals in those 10 games.
