On Saturday, BU broke a 1-1 tie with UConn, scoring three goals in the final period.  Senior Ahti Oksanen set up sophomore Brandon Fortunato, who sneaked in from the point for a power-play goal and that was the game-winner. 

Freshman Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson also scored in the third and added an assist. Assistant Captain Danny O'Regan assisted on JFK's goal and the other two third-period goals.

Goalie Sean Maguire, whose “confident” and “aggressive” play helped him earn the win on Saturday, has on his resume, two of the ten best save percentage seasons (scroll to pg.3) in BU history. If the Pittsburgh Penguins draft pick can exceed a .923 percentage this year, he’ll pass John Curry to become BU’s career leader.  

Game recaps on GoTerriers.com now include links to high-definition video of each BU goal. Those goal videos also can be found on each player’s bio page. (Example: Fortunato)

Looking ahead
2018 recruit Tyler Weiss, in his first game of the season, scored a goal for the Don Mills Flyers AAA Minor Midgets, in a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Red Wings.

Looking back
John McCarthy, a co-captain of BU’s 2009 national champions, was recalled to the Sharks from the club’s AHL affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda on Saturday. He skated in his 88th NHL game on Saturday, a 5-2 Sharks’ win over Carolina, and then was returned to the AHL club on Monday.

Chris Bourque scored the overtime game-winner in AHL Hershey's 3-2 win against Hartford. The left-wing, who scored the Beanpot Championship-winning goal for BU in 2005, added an assist and has six points in his first six games this season.

Former Terrier wing Ryan Weston, has been inducted into the New Hampshire Legends of Hockey.  A native of Henniker, Weston played on BU’s 2006 Hockey East Championship team, as well as three Beanpot champions before embarking on a pro hockey career in the AHL and ECHL.

Let me take a nap... great shot, anyway.
I think I'm crying. It's that admirable.
Excellent. So revolutionary.
Really good experience, friend.
