BU Downs Vermont 3-1

Tonight BU bounced back from a disappointing tie last night with a 3-1.

BU had no goals in the first, despite vastly outplaying the Catamounts.

Captain Chris Connolly put BU up 1-0 on a power play goal in the second frame. Later in the stanza Adam Clendening made a great pass from deep in the Terrier zone to spring Alex Chiasson on a break-a-way. Chiasson fired a shot over the shoulder of Vermont netminder Rod Madore.

BU would grab a second power play goal in the third. A Vermont defender was looking to make play from in front of the crease. Matt Nieto took a wack at his stick and the puck found it's way under Madore's pads and in.

The Catamounts picked up a goal with four seconds left to break up the shut out.

With the win BU clinched home ice in the opening round of the Hockey East playoffs.

More in-depth recap to follow tomorrow .
