BU finishes off the season sweep of UNH 2-1

The BU mens ice hockey team finished off the season series sweep over UNH in a 2-1 hard fought win. UNH scored first on a rebound goal by George Burke(4:32 into the first), who roofed the puck past Kieran Millan. That is the only puck he would let by all night as he made 28 saves. BU controlled most of the play through the end of the first and throughout the second as they tied the game on a greasy Wade Megan goal with the assist from Alex Chiasson on a nice 2 on 1 rush during a powerplay. BU scored the game winning goal with 12:09 left in the second as Sahir Gill made a great pass to Corey Trivino who buried the puck into the empty net for his 12th goal of the year. Chris Connolly also had an assist on the play which was his 100th career point as a Terrier. Congrats to the captain from all of us schmucks here at BSRS. You got to love the effort Connolly gives in every game and is a great example to the rest of the team.

The Terriers held on for a 2-1 win in front of 5220 at the Whittemore Center. That isn't even close to a sellout so I guess the "blue out" didn't go over as well as they planned. Shocker. The silly hillbillies probably only own Overalls as their only blue attire anyway. The win puts BU at 9-5-1(7-4-1) at the season with one game remaining in the first half this coming Saturday at Maine. The loss drops UNH to 6-9-2(4-7-1) and free falling in the Hockey East standings.
