In and effort to erase last weekend's painful loss to Holy Cross, tonight, BU came back to tie UMass 2-2 in Amherst.

UMass pulled out to a 1-0 lead in period one. With 34 seconds left in the frame, T.J. Syner potted a power play goal past BU goalie Keiran Millan.

The Minutemen doubled their lead in the second period. Branden Grace picked-off Max Nicastro's blind pass that was intended to absolutely no one. The turnover led to a scrum in front of the BU goal, which produced a rebound that was eventually roofed into the BU net by Conor Sheary.

Later in the period, Matt Nieto extended his goal scoring streak to 5 games. (Thats every game this season if your scoring at home.).Charlie Coyle took and outlet pass from Adam Clendening which turned into a 3 on 2 for the Terriers. Coyle looked to make a pass to Garret Noonan, but it was deflected back to Nieto, who put it past UMass goalie Kevin Boyle low blocker side.

UMass continued to cary the play until the end of the second. That's when Parker must have really fired up the troops in between periods as BU came out flying in the third.

A little over five minutes into the period, Sahir Gill put home a loose rebound, tying the game at two. A shot from outside produced a large rebound and Boyle was caught out of position, allowing Gill to score his second of the year into a rather wide open net.

On the goal, Charlie Coyle picked up his second assist on the evening, upping his season total to 7. The sophomore has yet to score a goal, but is in a tie with Alex Chiasson for the team lead in points.

Minutes latter, Nieto set up Chiasson for the go-a-head goal but Boyle was there to make a fantastic save to keep the game tied at two.

It would stay tied a two throughout the five minute overtime session. BU carried the play for the majority of the OT, with Matt Nieto getting the best chance to win it off a rebound.

 Millan made 33 saves in the 2-2 draw. Fellow Senior, Grant Rollheiser will make his season debut tomorrow night at Agganis.
