Terriers dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to #8 Northeastern at Agganis Arena. Freshmen Nara Elia and Kristina Schuler had given BU a 2-0 lead, but the Huskies knotted the score in the second period and then scored the winner at 2:21 of the extra session. The teams meet again today at Matthews Arena with puck drop at 2 p.m.

Schuler scored the only first period goal, a power play tally, assisted by junior Reagan Rust and redshirt sophomore Abbey Stanley. Elia’s goal midway through the second period, also on the power play (with assists to Schuler and Stanley), doubled the lead. But Northeastern responded just 19 seconds later to make it 2-1 and scored again with 1:32 left in the period.

After a scoreless third, the Huskies’ Matt Hartman beat goalie Erin O’Neil for the game-winner. O’Neil made 32 saves for BU.
