BU beats UNH 4-1 - gets first 4pt weekend of the year
The BU mens ice hockey team swept their first weekend of the year with a 4-1 win over UNH last night at Agganis Arena. The first period was scoreless and a strong defensive period for both sides with the first goal coming on an odd angle shot from junior Wade Megan to make it 1-0 BU. University of No Hardware tied it up early in the third on a Trevor van Riemsdyk wrister that beat Kieran Millan stick side. The Terriers responded with two goals three minutes later. The first from junior defenseman Max NiCastro and the second from senior forward Corey Trivino(8th of the year). Matt Nieto sealed the win with an empty net goal from his own zone as the puck trickled on edge and curved into the vacated UNH net as Matt "Frozen Pizza" Di Girolamo had vacated the net after making 23 saves on 26 shots. The Terries return to action next weekend in a non-conference tilt at Madison Square Garden against Cornell of the EZAC in "Red Hot Hockey". Hopefully BU can keep the solid play going as they have shown during this 3 game mini winning streak.
