For the second night in a row BU's netminder, Kieran Millan has returned to the form of his freshman year. Tonight he made 38 saves including 13 in the  third period. 

After a scoreless opening period, UNH jumped out to a 1-0 lead on their first power play of the night. There was a huge scrum in front of the BU with about everyone on the ice standing in the slot. The puck found it's way on to the stick of UNH's Greg Burke who put it past Millan for his first collegiate goal.

About three and half minutes later BU tied the game on a power play goal of their own. At the point with the puck was Adam Clendening. His slap shot hit the dead center of the post and bounced into Charlie Coyle's lap who tapped it past New Hampshire's goalie, Matt DiGirolamo

BU's second came just minutes later. A bad turnover by a UNH defender lead to a semi break-a-way for BU's Ross Gaudet. Gaudet's shot looked like it hit off the leg of a Wildcat player. The deflection found it's way past DiGirolamo, five hole,  giving the Terriers their first lead in three games.

There were three plays that went to review, all being dis-allowed goals. Sahir Gill's high stick goal in the first period was called off after video review along with Alex Chiasson's strike with the net off it's pegs. The third a final one was UNH's Paul Thompson's goal that never crossed the line.

In the third period UNH dominated the Terriers. All the play was down the BU end, but thanks to Millan, The Terrier came away with the win and more importantly gained two points in the Hockey east standings. They are now in third behind BC and UNH.
