On a night when shot after shot jumped into the nets, #7/6 Terriers finished on the short end of a high-scoring affair at Conte Forum, losing to Boston College, 9-6.

Matt Brown had a four-point night with a goal and three assists, while Wilmer Skoog scored twice and added a helper.

A fast-paced opening period produced no scoring for the first 15 minutes and then the floodgates opened. The Eagles scored twice in under a minute. Lukas Gustafson's power play goal was followed by a score by Charlie Leddy.  

That two-goal margin lasted just over a minute as BU responded on a power play. Dom Fensore's wrister from the blue line went off goalie Mitch Benson and hit the right post, where Brown cleaned up the rebound. [Video]

Just before the end of the period, Ethan Phillips' hustle enabled an odd-man rush, passing to Jay O'Brien, who dished to Quinn Hutson for a tap-in. [Video]

In what would be an eight-goal second period, BU scored first with Skoog converting a goalmouth rebound for a 3-2 Terrier lead. [Video]

After a goal by BC's Liam Izyk, Jeremy Wilmer scored on the rush to give BU its last lead of the evening. [Video]

However, the Eagles would tack on two more before the end of the period. 

Predictably, the pace of scoring slowed in the final period. Vinnie Duplessis replaced Drew Commesso in goal. BC added a power play goal midway through the period and blunted BU's comeback attempts. Skoog's second tally, on an extra-attack goal, was followed by an empty-net goal that closed out the scoring.
