Terriers take 3 of 4 points from Uconn

The BU Terriers bounced back this weekend after getting swept last by Minnesota State last weekend at Agganis Arena. Friday night UConn battled to a 2-2 tie while the Terriers flew to a 6-3 victory yesterday.

The story of the weekend was Bobo Carpenter as he scored 5 of the Terriers 8 goals on the weekend with two being shorthanded on Friday and then three yesterday being on the powerplay. Carpenter stepped up this weekend taking over the goal scoring role that Patrick Harper and Shane Bowers had been carrying through the first four games. He now leads the Terriers with Harper with 8 points in their first 6 games. Jordan Greenway(2 assists) and Pat Curry(2 goals) also a big day yesterday for the Terriers. Curry showed off some of his scoring ability to reward Coach Quinn for his promotion into a top 6 forward role.

UConn definitely does not have as much skill as years past but this is the most points BU has gotten from them in a series since they joined HE. The Terriers also took three points in 2014-2015 from UConn. It would have been nice to take all four points from UConn who is most likely heading for another finish in the bottom half of Hockey East  but if you take 3 points from each opponent in the league. You would also be undefeated in the league which is not bad I guess.

The 2017-2018 BU Terriers started off the season on the right start as they defeated the Union Dutchmen and Quinnipiac Bobcats by 5-2 and 3-2 scores respectively. The highlights for both games are posted below but the story of the season so far has been the strong play from sophomore Patrick Harper who has four goals in two games while freshman Shane Bowers has a goal per game including the OT game winner this past Sunday versus Quinnipiac.
