Weird win; Krys scores ENG in OT

After a scoreless 60 minutes of regulation, Chad Krys’ rare empty-net goal in overtime gave the Terriers a 1-0 win over Vermont in Burlington. Jake Oettinger, continuing his strong play, authored his second consecutive shutout—and third of the season—with a 29 save effort. 

The Catamounts, who needed a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, had pulled goalie Stefanos Lekkas for an extra skater in the final minute of overtime. However, Krys controlled the puck following a UVM turnover and fired home the winner from the neutral zone.

Lekkas, with 43 stops, stymied BU all night including a leg save of Joel Farabee’s attempt at the left post late in the third. A review of the play showed the puck hadn’t crossed the goal line. Earlier in the game Gabriel Chabot clanged a shot off iron.

The win improved BU’s conference record to 10-8-2. With BC’s loss to Maine, the Terriers are tied with the Black Bears for fifth place, two points behind Providence with three games left on the schedule.

BU Head Coach Albie Connell:

We deserved to win. I thought we played well from the start of the game to the end. And it was nice to see Chad Krys get a goal because he was one of our best players. Great poise by Chad, great recognition.
