BU and UND battle to 3-3 tie

Matt O’Connor set a career high with 55 saves, including 24 in the third period, and Robbie Baillargeon scored the game-tying goal midway through the third period as BU and North Dakota skated to a 3-3 overtime tie.

BU had taken one-goal leads in the first and second periods, only to see the visitors knot the score each time. Co-captain Garrett Noonan’s snapshot from the left circle, on a power play, began the scoring. Assists went to Ahti Oksanen and Matt Lane (photo). Brent Chyzyk scored the equalizer for UND.

In the second period, Nick Roberto one-timer a slick backhand pass by Danny O’Regan with Lane assisting again, but North Dakota’s Stephane Pattyn replied just 14 seconds later. The visitors took the lead at 6:45 of the third on Adam Tambellini’s power play goal. Baillargeon’s tying goal, midway through the period, was his fourth marker of the year. Assists to Evan Rodrigues and Dalton MacAfee, who recorded his first career point.

Looking ahead
2014 recruit Jack Eichel scored two of the NTDP U18s’ three goals, but Team USA fell to Muskegon, 5-3. Eichel, who centers the top line, continues his torrid scoring with
10 goals and 11 assists in the past eight games.

2014 recruit J.J. Piccinich notched his team-leading tenth goal of the season in Youngstown’s 4-1 win against Sioux City.

Looking back
Charlie Coyle’s goal in the shootout lifted the Wild past Winnipeg, 3-2. Coyle’s game-winner in the fourth shootout round featured what CBS Sports Chris Peters’ claims was a “Gordon Bombay Triple Deke.” 

Kevin Shattenkirk picked up his 15th assist of the season in the Blues’ 6-1 win against Dallas. The former BU captain, who has a 1-15-16 line in 22 games, is a strong candidate for the U.S. Olympic Team.
