The Terriers played their best game since October 31st vs PC on Saturday night and the score showed it with a 4-2 win to move into a tie for first in Hockey East with UMass Lowell with 14 points a piece(Lowell has a game in hand). BU got off to a good start as Danny O'Regan scored his first of 3 goals on great passes from linemates Ahti Oksanen and Jack Eichel. O'Regan would pot another one off a deflection of a John Macleod shot very early in the second period to make it a 2-0 game. Brandon Hickey would add his first collegiate goal to make it 3-0. The final would be 4-2 as Eichel would set up O'Regan again for the 4th BU goal on a great no look pass.
Coach Quinn was pleased with the effort as he should be. The team was clicking on all cylinders Saturday night and now has only one game left before the semester break at RPI next Saturday. There was some interesting comments from Merrimack coach Mark Dennehy after the game where he said he didn't even talk about BU's top line of Oksanen-Eichel-O'Regan this week as he just focused on his team. Coach Eichel had 4 assists on you in one game. You should probably at least point out that he is capable of that. Just a thought.
