Nieto leads Terriers past Friars

Freshman Matt Nieto had a hand in all of BU’s offense, scoring its first goal and assisting on the second in the Terriers’ 2-1 win over Providence at Agganis Arena. Nieto converted an Alex Chiasson centering pass in the first period, then found fellow freshman Adam Clendening for a blueline blast on a second period power play. Kieran Millan, who stopped 36 shots, lost a chance for a shutout in the waning minutes of the game for the second time this month.

BU has now gone 5-0-1 in league play since losing a pair of one goal games to BC and Merrimack a month ago. Terriers remain in fourth place in Hockey East, two points behind the Warriors. The second half of the home-and-home with the Friars will be played tonight at Schneider Arena.
