Tic-Tac-Toe Terriers

The Bruins' first goal in Wednesday’s 6-4 win against Toronto was the first-ever All-BU goal in an NHL game with Charlie McAvoy providing the finish after passes from Charlie Coyle and Matt Grzelcyk.   

Assistant Athletic Director Kelley later noted: "You could add the 2016-17 Bruins as well. Grzelcyk and JFK played 2 and 1 regular season games, respectively, before McAvoy joined the team during the playoffs."

Looking ahead

2019 recruit Case McCarthy scored a goal in Team USA’s 6-1 win against host Sweden in its first preliminary round game at the IIFH World U18 Championship. Fellow recruit Trevor Zegras is currently out of the line-up, which also includes Domenick Fensore and Alex Vlasic, with an upper body injury. The U.S. faces Slovakia on Friday.

● IIHF recap and box score

Ethan Phillips scored a goal and assisted on two goals—including the overtime game-winner—as Sioux Falls completed a two-game sweep of Sioux City in the USHL playoffs. Phillips who had seven of his team’s 52 shots, has four points in two playoff games.

Looking back

Matt Nieto picked up his third playoff point, an assist in Colorado’s 3-2 overtime win against Calgary. The Avs, who hold a 2-1 series lead, called up AJ Greer from the AHL, but he didn’t dress in the contest.

Jack Eichel and Clayton Keller are among the first 17 players selected to play for Team USA in next month’s IIHF World Championships in Slovakia.

Doyle Somerby scored a goal and added an assist in the Cleveland Monsters’ 5-1 win against the Toronto Marlies in the Monsters’ regular-season finale.  The former Terrier captain has an 8-12-20 scoring line in his second pro season.
