Hohmann’s pair helps BU double up New Hampshire

#2/3 Terriers relinquished a two-goal lead, but scored the game’s final three goals to earn a 6-3 win over New Hampshire at Agganis Arena. Senior assistant captain Cason Hohmann and sophomore Robbie Baillargeon led the way with three points each as BU’s second line registered four goals. The win was BU’s seventh in a row, the longest winning streak since the 2008-09 season.

Today’s game at the Whittemore Center in Durham has been moved up to 4 p.m. and will air on both WBIN-TV and Fox Sports Atlantic. Today's game links.

Hohmann opened the scoring at 42 seconds of the first, ripping home the cleanly won draw by Baillargeon. Six minutes later, the wing from Texas scored again, converting the rebound of a Brandon Hickey shot after BU had held the puck in UNH’s zone for several opportunites. The Wildcats countered with a goal by Dan Correale on a rebound at 14:14.

In the second period, freshman Jack Eichel forced a turnover just inside the New Hampshire zone, slid a pass to junior Danny O’Regan and took a return feed for an easy tap in and a 3-1 BU lead. Again, UNH answered on Warren Foegele’s goal just half a minute later, and then evened the score on Matt Willows’ power play goal. An interference call late in the period gave the Terriers a power play and BU needed just 12 seconds to score on junior captain Matt Grzelcyk’s shot from the point

BU regained a two-goal lead two minutes into the third period on Hickey's blast, set up by Matt Lane and Baillargeon just seconds after a power play expired.  The Terriers protected the lead, dominating the final period territorially and in shots.  With the Wildcats’ net empty, junior Ahti Oksanen controlled the puck in a goal-mouth scramble and flipped it home.

Junior Matt O’Connor stopped 30 shots to earn his 16th win of the season.

► BU extended its third period scoring margin to 51-17. 

► Terriers put 46 shots on the Wildcats goal with Hohmann and Oksanen credited with nine apiece. BU had four shots clang off iron in the second period.

►Senior assistant captain Evan Rodrigues, whose 11-game scoring streak ended, was interviewed by Bernie Corbett for the Feb. 13 edition of Inside Hockey East.

►Oksanen’s 19th goal is the most by a Terrier since Wade Megan rang up 20 in 2011-12. Hohmann has four goals in his last six games.
