200 Wins!

Women's Team
The #7 Terriers’ 5-3 win over host Connecticut provided the milestone 200th victory for the 10-year-old program and Coach Brian Durocher, but it didn’t come easily. BU came from behind three times in the first two periods before taking the lead in the final period.

The Huskies scored in the game’s opening minute but BU knotted the score on Samantha Sutherland’s fourth goal midway through the first. In the second period, UConn regained the lead, only to have Shannon Doyle notch her third to tie the score again. That lasted only three minutes before the home team scored on a power play. Victoria Bach responded with her 14th on a power play in the final minute of the middle period.

BU took its first lead late in the third period on Kayla Tutino’s seventh goal, which also was her 100th career point. Rebecca Russo closed the scoring with an empty-netter. 

The BU overall record--and Durocher's--stands at 200-111-40 (.627) and includes seven consecutive winning seasons.

The Terriers' junior captain Matt Grzelcyk (photo), who scored the game-winner on Friday against UMass and has been playing his best hockey of the season, is the subject of pre-Beanpot stories in both the Boston Herald and the Boston Globe

With 30 points (11G, 19A) in 15 conference games, freshman Jack Eichel is averaging a league-best 2 points per game. That average was last achieved for a full season by New Hampshire’s Jason Krog in 1998-99.

Looking ahead
2015 recruit Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson scored twice and added an assist in Omaha’s 5-4 overtime victory against Madison. The 6-1 center, who now has a 12-30-42 scoring line, is the Lancer’s top scorer and is tied for third in the USHL.
● recap

A standout performance by 2016 recruit Kieffer Bellows—a hat trick in regulation and a shootout goal—wasn’t enough to bring Sioux Falls a win, as the Stampede lost to Tri-City, 5-4. The power forward from Edina, Minn., began Sioux Falls’ comeback from a 3-0 deficit with a second period goal and then scored a pair of extra attacker goals in the final two minutes of regulation to force overtime. Bellows (photo) converted his shootout opportunity; but the Storm scored twice for the win. With 20 goals in 37 games, Bellows is tied for fifth in the USHL.
 KSFY recap

2016 recruit Patrick Harper assisted on three goals, including the game-winner, as Avon Old Farms doubled up Choate, 6-3.  Earlier in the week he had a highlight-reel goal in the Winged Beavers’ upset of top-ranked Loomis-Chaffee.  Avon has won four of its last five games.

2017 recruit David Farrance (photo) scored four goals for Victor, N.Y. high school, including a first-period hat trick, in a 6-0 win over Hilton. It was the third four-goal game of the season for the left-shot defenseman.     

Looking back 
Former Terrier defenseman Adam Clendening was acquired by Vancouver from Chicago in a one-for-one player swap.  The blueliner from Wheatfield, N.Y., was added to the Canucks’ roster, but was a healthy scratch in Friday’s 5-2 win over Buffalo in which Nick Bonino scored the game-winner. Clendening had made four starts this season with the Blackhawks and scored his first goal on his first shot taken in the NHL. (video)  

Sahir Gill scored his second goal since joining AHL Hamilton in the Bulldogs’ 5-3 win over Iowa. Gill’s victim was former Terrier MVP and All American John Curry.
