BU sweeps lil bro, ends their season

The BU Terriers overcame 2-0 deficits to beat their crosstown rival opponent in the Hockey East Quarterfinal round. In both nights BU dug themselves early 2-0 deficits in the first period where they would climb within one in the second period and then tie and win the game in the third/OT with both game winners coming on powerplay goals. Northeastern boats one of the strongest offensive groups in the nation so it was a real good sign as the postseason kicks off that BU's defense and goaltending held them to four goals over two games. That defense may take a hit if defenseman John Macleod, out was injured Friday night, is out long term. Macleod has been the most improved defenseman and maybe player on the roster for the Terriers is a key penalty killer for the team. Bobo Carpenter was also banged up over the weekend but according to Coach Quinn's postgame comments may be back in the lineup next weekend.

The highlight below is funny because it's the last game Northeastern will play this year
