Terriers badger Wisconsin for a 4-1 win

On the night when BU raised banners, the Terriers also raised their game, overwhelming Wisconsin by a 4-1 score that didn’t really reflect the one-sided play. BU gave up an early score on a goal-mouth scramble and allowed five Badger shots in the opening minutes, but only 13 more the rest of the way. Meanwhile, the Terriers peppered UW goalie Matt Jurusik with 44 shots.

Assistant captain Matt Lane’s second of the year tied the scored just 1:36 into the second period and Sophomore Brandon Fortunato’s power play marker midway through the period proved to be the game-winner.

Eleven minutes into the third period, sophomore Chase Phelps deflected home a Fortunato shot and four minutes later Bobo Carpenter scored his first collegiate goal, burying the rebound of a Mike Moran shot to close out the scoring.

BU was one for seven on power plays, generating 16 shots and many more opportunities. The penalty kill was almost perfect, holding the Badgers to no shots on two of their three power plays.

After being critical of his team's "immature" play the previous night, Coach David Quinn remarked:
“We have grown up a lot in 24 hours.. We were much more purposeful, we did play a more mature game.“
Connor LaCouvee stopped the last 17 shots he saw and exhibited strong puck-handling behind the net.

Ryan Cloonan, who scored his first BU goal against Union last week, had a two-point game, assisting on the Lane and Carpenter goals.

Danny O’Regan, Robbie Baillargeon and Jakob Forsback-Karlsson won a combined 35 out of 51 faces offs with Baillargeon particularly strong on defensive zone draws.

Coach David Quinn shook up the bottom three lines, putting Lane and Ryan Cloonan  on the second line with JFK and having Baillargeon center AJ Greer and Nikolas Olsson. 

 In a pre-game ceremony, BU raised banners recognizing last season’s achievements: a 30th Beanpot Championships, a ninth Hockey East Regular Season title, an eighth Hockey East Championship, the 22nd appearance in the Frozen Four and Jack Eichel becoming BU’s third Hobey Baker Award Winner.

Looking ahead
The NTDP U18s headed North to Dartmouth and once again the future Terriers spearheaded the team’s 5-4 win, accounting for all five goals. Clayton Keller and linemate Kieffer Bellows (photo) each scored twice and assisted on a pair, while Chad Krys scored a power play goal. Keller, who got Team USA on the after Dartmouth took a 2-0 lead, also scored the game-winner on a power play with just 21 seconds left in regulation. Bellows now has a team-high 11 goals in 11 games, while Keller is the points leader with 20.

Women’s Team
Terrier dropped a 4-1 decision to Clarkson, as the Golden Knights avenged last year's two-game sweep at the hand of BU with a sweep of their own. Clarkson carried a two-goal lead into the final period when freshman Sammy Davis cut the lead in half with her fifth goals of the season. BU would get no closer as the visitors added two more goals. Erin O'Neil was strong in goal, making 37 saves.
