Friars post 3-1 win over BU

Providence gained a split in the weekend series, defeating BU 3-1 Saturday night, dealing BU its first conference loss. Despite Friday night’s comeback win, the third period continues to be a problem for BU. For the third time in ten days, the Terriers have allowed strong goaltending in an away game to be wasted by yielding the game-winner in the final period.

Terriers scored the game’s first goal on a power play at 15:08 of the middle period when Ahti Oksanen took pass from Nick Roberto at the top of the circle and rifled a shot past Jon Gillies. Danny O’Regan also assisted. Just under three minutes later, the Friars evened the score on a 5-on-3 power play with Derek Army converting after Sean Maguire made the initial stop.

Providence took the lead at 3:28 of the third when Ross Mauermann muscled past the BU defense and scored in close. Terriers were unable to put an equalizer past Gillies and Mauermann closed the scoring with an empty-netter in the final minute.

Maguire’s 33 saves earned him third-star honors.

Terriers are now 2-1-0 in the conference and 4-4-0 overall.
