Facing elimination from the Hockey East Tournament, the #8 Terriers turned in a disappointing performance and were shut out by #11 Lowell, 5-0, as the River Hawks completed a two-game sweep. BU is still likely to receive a bid to the NCAA tournament but won’t know more until next weekend.

Lowell scored once in the first period, twice in the second and twice again in the third.
Coach David Quinn pulled Sean Maguire in favor of Connor LaCouvee following the River Hawks’ second goal, but it did little to stem the tide.

CJ Smith scored twice for Lowell while Jake Kamrass contributed a goal and an assist. Goalie Kevin Boyle authored a school-record seventh shutout for the season, earning first-star honors.

Quinn remarked: “They’re a better hockey team than we are right now. Their goals came way too easy and we couldn’t get one. We’ve got to become a more mature hockey team before our next game.”

Looking ahead
Clayton Keller's shootout goal proved to be the difference as the NTDP U18s defeated Tri-CIty, 3-2. Keller, a 2016 recruit, also assisted on the game-tying goal late in the third period.

2017 recruit Hank Crone scored his 15th goal of the season as Fargo edged Des Moines in overtime, 2-1. Crone has a 15-18-33 line this season.

Patrick Harper made his USHL debut with Omaha last night, assisting on the Lancers' only goal in a 4-1 loss to Green Bay. Harper recently completed his prep career at Avon Old Farms where he scored 106 points in 49 games over two seasons.

Looking ahead
