In last nights game the Terriers got shut out for the first time in exactly 100 games. The last time a team shut out the Terrier was way back on Feb 2 2007, when the Terriers and River Hawks skated to a 0-0 tie. In the first period the teams looked very even. At 8:27 of the first period, Nick Bonino set up Vinny Saponary in the middle, only to see the him nail the left post.

Midway through the second period is when the game shifted to the Irish. Billy Maday of the Irish found a juicy re-bound in font of the net and and took a wrister from about 20 feet out and beat Millan high blocker side. The Terriers had no time to re-group, only 12 seconds latter Ben Ryan, center for Notre Dame scored on a rap-around. Early in the third period the Terriers found them selfs short handed. Wile most of the terriers were a man down the play was in the Notre Dame zone, till the Irish got a brake-a-way, during an Eric Gryba hit from behind sentence, and scored making the score 3-0 Notre Dame.

Bu had many chances to get on the board in the third period. In all the there were five time the Terriers failed to get one. Including two brake-aways that ether ended up with a great save or there was no shot on goal. The other three chances hit the post and did not go in. Midway through the third the Terriers made seam like the puck would never leave the Notre Dame end. Countless time the Irish were denied by the Terrier d-men. Yet Bu still could not get on the board.
“The first time I thought I saw a BU hockey team show up was after we were down, 2-0, I think up to that point, we were still jumpy with the puck and getting bumped off the puck and we didn’t play real hard on top of the puck. We were inept on the power play [0 for 8] as far as moving the puck." -Jack Parker/ Boston Globe
