Swept in South Bend
Friday’s script was repeated Saturday as the Terriers were blanked again at Notre Dame by the same 2-0 score. Sophomore netminder Sean Maguire dueled Notre Dame’s Steven Summerhayes evenly throughout two scoreless periods. But the hosts converted just 19 seconds into the third period on Jeff Costello’s power play goal after a Garrett Noonan penalty late in the middle stanza carried over to the start of the third.
Austin Wuthrich, who had scored Friday’s game-winner, doubled the Irish’s lead with two-and-half minutes left.
Like Matt O’Connor on Friday, Sean Maguire was exceptional in goal stopping 38 shots and earning second-star honors.
BU suffered back-to-back blankings for the first time in 72 years (1941-42).

● Notre Dame recap
2015 recruit Bobo Carpenter played a pair of games this weekend for the Sioux City Musketeers, the USHL team that had added him to their roster on February 7. Carpenter recorded an assist in last night’s Sioux City 6-5 win against Des Moines. Earlier in the week, Carpenter scored four goals for Austin Prep in a 6-0 win against Hingham. Carpenter has 21 goals for the this season for the Cougars, despite missing time with an injury. Ranked #146 in the NHL Central Scouting midterms, Carpenter had been coached at the 2013 USA Select 17s development camp by Musketeers coach Jay Varady. If he plays 10 games with Sioux City this season, he’ll become property of the USHL team.
2014 recruit Jack Eichel scored a goal and two assists in the NTDP U18s’ 4-1 win against Indiana last night. The 6-2 center, who earned the game’s second star, now has a 26-31-57 scoring line in 35 U18 games.
2014 recruit AJ Greer scored the first goal for Kimball Union in the Wildcats 4-1 win over Vermont Academy in the Lakes Region tournament semi-final on Friday. Greer is a co-captain of KUA which won yesterday’s tournament championship defeating Proctor Academy, 4-2. Next up is the NEPSAC tournament.
Kerrin Sperry made a season-high 47 saves, but the Terriers yield two third-period to BC and the Eagles came away with a 3-2 victory at Conte Forum. The Comm Ave. rival were tied at a goal apiece after one, with BU getting a goal from Lillian Braga, assisted by Louise Warren and Dakota Woodworth. Terriers took the lead in the middle period on Warren’s 24th goal from Braga and Kaleigh Fratkin. The hosts knotted the score midway through the final period and nailed the game-winner with just five seconds left in regulation.
