After a slow start in the game’s first few minutes until a thunderous Charlie McAvoy mid-ice hit provided a wake-up call, BU scored twice in a 20-second span. Jordan Greenway beat goalie Brett Magnus at 7:48 for a power-play goal. Then, he controlled a puck behind the goal line extended and found Clayton Keller at the bottom of the left circle for a one-timer. BU outshot the visitors 14-3 in the first period..
During a scoreless second period with BU taking 14 shots to SHU’s 13, the Terriers were forced to kill a 5-on-3 power play for the second time. BU was perfect killing all nine penalties, leading Quinn to comment:
“We structurally were good, we didn’t get overextended, we had good sticks, we moved when the puck moved. And you need puck luck and you need great goaltending, and we got all of that."
