It was BU's power play that struck first in the opening period. Sahir Gill fed Charlie Coyle in the slot. Coyle sent a no-look behind the back pass on the tape of Max Nicastro who put it pass NU netminder Clay Witt on an off balance slap shot.
The Huskies picked up the equalizer towards the end of the frame from Senior Randy Guzior.
The Terriers would pick up their second power play goal of the period at the 17:13 mark. Chris Connolly sent a wrister over the shoulder of Witt and into the top twine giving BU the lead back.
NU would go on and score three straight goals from Drew Denials, Mick Hewkin, and Steve Silva respectively.
BU would cut the lead to 4-3 with 2:50 remaining in the game. Kevin Gilroy was able to squeak one by Witt. After putting a shot on net, the puck somehow found its way under Witt's legs and dribbled over the line.
With the loss, BU will be the three seed in the Hockey East Tournament.
