This Week In '06: The Year's First Sweep

November 4, 2005 vs Vermont 

BU got on the board just over five minutes into the game when Eric Thomassian scored from Jason Lawrence. Less than a two minutes later, Peter MacArthur added  power play goal to take a 2-0 less than 10 minutes into the game. Vermont battled back though, tying the game before the period ended, including a power play goal with just 10 seconds left in the frame.

BU struck back just a minute into the second on MacArthur's second of the game. Brandon Yip added a goal in the closing minutes of the period to round out the scoring and win 4-2. John Curry made 19 saves in the winning effort.

November 6, 2005 @ Maine 

The Terriers picked up a gutty 2-1 come-from-behind road win at the Alfond in this Sunday afternoon tilt. Maine took a 1-0 lead midway through the first on a power play goal from Greg Moore. The Terriers again responded like in the UVM game with two second period goals. Jason Lawrence tied things up 1-1 five minutes into the frame and Brad Zancanaro scored the eventual game winner at the 16:41 mark.

The lead held and BU won their first road game against a team that eventually would be in the Frozen Four come tournament time. This was easily Curry's best game so far. He made 37 saves, including 19 in the third period alone.

“The best thing about game tonight was how well John Curry played,” said Parker. “He looked like John Curry of last year, very poised, from the get-go he was like ‘shoot, see what happens.”

“This was definitely my best game of the year and it was right up there among the best of my career,” said Curry.

“I felt really good tonight as far as just being poised and seeing the puck really well,” added Curry, who credited his teammates with playing well in front of him.
