Terriers fall to Maine, 5-2

#18 Terriers’ visit to Alfond Arena failed to build on last Saturday’s strong effort. Despite being outshot, 42-28, the Black Bears took a 5-2 win for their first win against BU since January 2014.

BU got on the board first, eight minutes into the contest, when Kasper Kotkansalo converted the rebound of a Logan Cockerill shot for their first collegiate goal and assist, respectively.  Patrick Harper also assisted. Maine countered with a Brady Keeper power play goal to produce a 1-1 tie after one.

Second period goals by Canon Pieper and Brendan Robbins gave the hosts a 3-1 lead before Cockerill narrowed the margin with his first collegiate goal. He took a cross-slot backhand pass from Shane Bowers and beat goalie Jeremy Swayman. Harper picked up his second assist. BU nearly tied the score when Kotkansalo hit a post and Drew Melanson forced Swayman to make a highlight reel save.

BU poured 18 shots on Swayman in the final period, but couldn’t put a puck past the freshman netminder. Patrick Holway extended Maine’s lead to 4-2, converting the rebound of his own shot. Patrick Shea’s empty-netter closed out the scoring.

The teams complete the weekend series tonight at Cross Insurance Arena in Portland with puck drop at 7 p.m. (LINKS)
