Terriers' offense clicks in 6-2 win

Ross Gaudet and Nick Bonino led a group of five Terriers with multiple-point games in a 6-2 thumping of visiting UMass. Gaudet, a former All-Scholastic forward at Austin Prep who didn’t dress at all as a freshman, scored BU’s first two goals—first, off a rebound and then off a face off—and with a third best on the team seven goal, has been a surprising source of offense.

Bonino assisted on both Gaudet goals and later set up Luke Popko’s shorthanded goal in the final minutes of the game. The three helpers enabled Bonino to reach the 100 point mark for his career. He’s the 77th Terrier to do so and is tied with Rich Brennan.

Colby Cohen (photo—credit Sarah Gordon/DFP) added his team leading 9th goal and an assist, while Vinny Saponari’s 3rd in the past four games and a power play blast by Max Nicastro accounted for the other goals. Kieran Millan had another strong game in goal, turning aside 39 Minutemen shots.

• BU scored on two of five power play chances.
• Terriers won the face off battle, 43-35, and scored twice on face offs.

BU gets the weekend off to prepare for Monday’s Beanpot opener against its opponent from last year’s tournament championship game, Northeastern.
