The visitors, showing more jump than BU, had dominated the first period, scoring on a jammed in shot from the post by Alex Kile following a turnover and then on a power play blast by Cooper Marody. While the shots in the scoreless second period were even at nine apiece, the territorial advantage remained with the Wolverines.
“It’s not an easy thing to do when you don’t play well for two periods, and be able to pull it together, and give yourself a chance in the third. And that’s what I thought we did.
"I thought we came out with a lot more pace to start the third period. Lo and behold, we get one. The building gets excited and our bench gets excited, and we come back and get another one."
"I didn't think it was a penalty, let alone a penalty shot. I was very surprised. But Connor, again, makes an unbelievable save to give us a chance."
