BU rallys in 3rd, beats Harvard in OT
The BU Terriers came out flat last night against Harvard over in Cambridge at the Bright Hockey Center and as a result were down 3-1 at the end of one period. They slowly regained their form throughout the game and eventually won 4-3 in OT. The highlight of the game was senior captain Chris Connolly's first 2 goals of the season. Junior forward Ben Rosen tied the game up with less than 3 minutes remaining after Max NiCastro had hit a post and Alex Chiasson had a few near misses. The Terriers scored twice in the third to tie the game and won in OT as sophomore defenseman Garrett Noonan banged home a rebound off a Chris Connolly shot and promptly celebrated by jumping into the glass right by the BU students. It was certainly a sloppy effort by BU through the first 40 minutes but the fight and the heart in this team cannot be questioned as they came from a 2 goal deficit two nights in a row to win games 4-3. BU remains #3 in the pairwise and tied for 1st in Hockey East, who have played one more conference game to date. The Terriers have a home ans home with Providence College next weekend. PC beat BU 5-3 in October handing BU it's first loss of the season.
