Terriers jolt Eagles in overtime

Tell me if you’ve heard this one before. A tie game in overtime. The puck comes off Colby Cohen’s stick, hits a defenseman and finds its way into the net for game-winner. Happened again last night. Cohen’s goal—his fifth in the past five games and eighth overall--didn’t deliver a national title like his OT winner last April 11, but it did close out a 5-4 win over BC at Conte Forum that enabled BU to win the Hockey East regular season series from its archrival.

Kieran Millan stopped 42 Eagle shots, while his teammates converted three of seven power plays and won the faceoff battle, 37-35. Nick Bonino and David Warsofsky each recorded their sixth goal of the campaign, while Vinny Saponari scored his fifth and Wade Megan his third.

Bonino added an assist to his goal and now stands at 97 career points.

BU returns to Agganis Arena Saturday evening to play conference-leading New Hampshire.

Looking back

Brandon Yip continues to wield a hot stick. He scored his 6th goal in 14 games on a power play as Colorado edged Nashville, 2-1 . It was the first NHL game-winner (video) for the right winger who while at BU scored game-winners in the 2006 and 2009 Hockey East Championship games.
