An Overall Good Weekend *UPDATED*

Whenever a team goes up to Maine and takes three out of four points it is a good weekend. BU did just that last weekend. This is the second time in three years (only played Maine once at Alfond last year) that the Terriers have three points from the Black Bears. That last time came back in 2009 and in 2007 BU swept Maine in a weekend series in Orono.

Millan Named Hockey East Defensive Player Of The Week
BU Net Minder Kieran Millan was named Hockey East's defensive player of the week after he stoned the Maine Black Bears this past weekend. He had an expressive 41 save game Saturday night. After being scored on only 21 seconds into the game, Millan responded to stop every other shot he faced that night.

BU, Hockey East's Team Of The Week
After a win and a tie in Maine, BU was named the team of the week by Hockey East.

In Other News 
Joe Pereira scored his first career short-handed goal in Saturday's 1-1 tie.

John Curry, BU former goaltender, took part in the AHL Skills Competition and in the All Star Game over the weekend. 

Former BU Captain Sean Sullivan had the hit of the year a few nights a go. Here is the video:
