Terrier rout Vermont, 6-2

On the road in Vermont, the #11/12 Terriers stretched their scoring muscles and thumped the Catamounts 6-2 at Gutterson Field House. BU raced out to a 4-0 lead four-and-a-half minutes into the second period and never looked back.  Six different players scored for BU including two who notched their first of the season—Sahir Gill (photo) and his new linemate Wesley Myron, who notched his first collegiate goal. Captain Wade Megan recorded his sixth goal, while BU got power play goals from Ahti Oksanen (3) and Alexx Privitera (2) and a goal by Sean Escobedo on a highlight-reel spin-o-rama move.

Freshman Sean Maguire, who had a strong effort against North Dakota two weeks ago, claimed his first win as a Terrier, stopping 29 of 31 Vermont shots, including several sharp saves following turnovers.

BU had a good night on special teams (2 of 6 PP; 4 of 5 PK) and faceoffs (32 of 61).

All six blueliners scored at least one point. Escobedo has three career goals against Vermont, having scored twice last season in a 5-0 win on February 24, also at The Gut.

Megan, Cason Hohmann and Matt Grzelcyk—whose end-to-end rush set up Gill’s goal—all have points in seven of nine games. Both Hohmann and Grzelcyk have five-game scoring streaks.

Terriers return to Agganis Arena for a Sunday matchup with New Hampshire, which blanked Lowell to remain a point ahead of BU in the conference standings. Note the changed game time on Sunday: 1 p.m.
