O for October

Terriers suffered their second consecutive shutout, tumbling to #6 Providence in their season home-opener at Agganis Arena. With the loss, BU fell to 0-4-0.

BU dominated territorially throughout the first period aided by three power plays, but still trailed 1-0 after a fluke goal in the game’s first minute. PC’s Jack Dugan won a puck battle behind the Terrier goal and banked the puck in off Jake Oettinger’s pad.

Brandon Duhaim wristed a shot past a screened Oettinger at 6:46 of the second period soon after the BU netminder had made a sensational stop during a Friar power play.  PC was on the man-advantage again late in the period when Spencer Young rang a shot home off the iron for a 3-0 lead.

Duhaime’s second goal, 42 seconds into the third period, and Kasper Bjorkqvist's power-play goal four minutes later closed out the scoring.

BU had only 18 shots during the game, with half coming in the final period. 

“There’s definitely a frustration level,” Coach Albie O’Connell said. “I think as simple as it is, we need to shoot the puck more.  Providence did a great job of blocking shots when we did shoot. We just need to have a shooter’s mentality. We just got to learn that lesson with a lot of skilled players — they try to make those fancy plays instead of just realizing to shoot the puck.”
