Late goal →OT →Tie...again

The pattern is getting all-t00-familiar. Four times in a row BU has come back to tie a game up with a third-period goal. Three of the four ended as a tie after overtime. Only the thriller against Harvard became a win.

Tonight’s hero was Corey Trivino who banged home a rebound after Vinny Saponari clanged a post with just over five minutes in regulations to tie up the always-tough Catamounts at 3 apiece. The Terriers nearly duplicated the results of the Harvard game when Colby Cohen’s shot off the goalie hit iron with seconds left in the third period and again in overtime when Joe Pereira rang one off the crossbar.

Assistant captain Eric Gryba and sophomore Ross Gaudet (photo courtesy of WTBU) had the other goals for BU which rallied from 2-0 and then 3-1 deficits for the second consecutive game. Grant Rollheiser stop 21 of 24 shots, while UVM's Rob Madore made 37 saves.

Once again, BU outshot its opponent by a wide margin, but needed a rally to tie, leaving Coach Jack Parker less-than-pleased with his squad’s effort.

Looking ahead
In USHL action, three BU 2010 recruits found the back of the net.

Chicago winger Sahir Gill’s second power play goal of the game gave the Steel a 4-3 lead early in the final stanza, but Youngstown scored three times in the final 6 minutes for 6-4 win. Gill, who also had an assist, is Chicago’s top scorer with an 8-18-26 line and is fifth in the league in scoring.

Yasin Cissé continues to have a hot stick for Des Moines, also bagging a pair of goals and an assist in the Bucs' 5-1 win against Indiana. His 12 goals are tied four fourth best in the league.

Left wing Matt Nieto scored and unassisted goal in the second period to get the U18s on the board, but a late Omaha goal gave the Lancers a 3-2 win.
