Terriers power past Northeastern, 4-1, at Agganis

Paced by two goals from junior co-captain Dante Fabbro and a 37-save performance by Jake Oettinger, the Terriers completed their home-and-home series against Northeastern with a 4-1 win, taking three out of four conference points. BU also received goals from senior co-captain Bobo Carpenter and junior Patrick Curry and three assists from junior Chad Krys. The victory was BU’s first in the regular season and in Hockey East for new head coach Albie O’Connell.

BU took a 1-0 lead (for the first time this season) when Curry passed to a streaking Fabbro who got behind the NU defense, beating Cayden Primeau from the slot just five seconds after a Terrier power play expired. Krys had initiated the play.
The middle period was scoreless, but BU finally gained some breathing room just a minute into the third period on its fourth power play opportunity. Following passes from freshman Joel Farabee and Krys, Fabbro's slapper from just inside the blue line beat Primeau low to the glove side. 
A five-minute major and game misconduct to Cam Crotty for hitting from behind gave the Huskies a chance to cut into the 2-0 lead, but Oettinger slammed the door on four Northeastern chances. 
Midway through the period, Carpenter stole a pass, raced from the BU end and scored unassisted, rifling a shot from the right circle past Primeau for his fourth tally of the season and the milestone 50th of his BU career.
Curry extended the lead to 4-0 with a shorthanded goal at 17:18, completing a two-on-one with Logan Cockerill with Krys adding his third helper. The Huskies finally got on the board with a power-play score with less than two minutes left.
Oettinger, who had struggled in the losses to Merrimack and Providence, was particularly effective in the game’s opening period when he stopped all 13 NU shots and in the third when he turned away 15 of 16.

Assessing the victory, O’Connell credited the “Really good leadership tonight from the captains. They led the charge obviously with some of the goals. Especially Fabbro [who] kind of set the tone." He added, “Our goaltender was dynamite tonight.”
