SB Nation: JFK keeps it going 

► BU SID Brian Kelley reports that Karlsson’s seven goals in the past four games came on just 11 shots.

Following the home-and-home sweep, BU is now #3 in the Pairwise and #4 in the KRACH rankings

BU-BC analysis

Terrier TakeAway from blog contributor defkit
- Oettinger was the clear star of the game. By keeping BC off the board in the first, he gave his teammates and coaches a chance to regroup, and they came out much stronger in the second period. 65 saves on 66 shots in two wins against his WJC netminding partner has to feel good for Jake, given his lack of playing time in that tournament. As usual, he looked very calm throughout the whole game, and really used his large frame to his advantage.
- Other than taking three penalties, the defense played a solid game. I thought Fabbro looked especially strong (save for one terrible giveaway in the third period). Krys made a nice rush that preceded BU’s first goal. MacAvoy showed his skill, but did have a handful of giveaways.
- Glad to see Curry get that first goal after Bellows created the turnover. Curry, who was really hustling, brings a good energy level every night.
- Terriers struggled to create consistent 5-on-5 scoring opportunities. They had a few strong shifts where they had a good cycle going, but there were very few chances off the rush. Not sure if the credit goes to BC's defense or a lack of flow by the forwards. Hopefully the team can work on this as they move on to the rest of the conference schedule.
- BC is a well-coached, skilled team. This game really could have gone either way; trying to beat them a third time in the Beanpot will be a tall order. Crisp passing and lot of back-door passing gave them lots of opportunities.
- The win should be a confidence building win for the Terriers (as should the 6 game winning streak). Hopefully they can keep things rolling.
