This Week In '06: Splitsville

BU wrapped up the first semester with two games in two different states in three nights as they travelled to Providence on Thursday night and then up to Dartmouth on Saturday.

Thursday December 8, 2005 @ Providence

Brad Zancanaro finally got BU on the board in the third, before his brother Tony, scored an empty net goal for the PC.

John Curry made 25 saves.

Saturday December 10, 2005 @ Dartmouth
On this night, BU flipped the scrip from Thursday. The were outshot 41-22, but trounced the Big Green behind three third period goals.

Zancanaro struck first for the Terriers on power play and Brandon Yip scored midway through the second.

Jason Lawrence, Brain McGuirk, and Yip all scored in the first half of the third period. McGuirk's goal was a shorthanded tally assisted by Zancanaro. Zancanaro also had an assist on the Lawrence goal to give him a three point night.

Tanner Glass netted a power play goal in the closing minutes for Dartmouth. BU backup goalie Karson Gillespie turned aside 40 of 41 shots faced.

"Between us not defending well in front and turning the puck over in the attacking zone when we didn’t have to, we gave them a lot of chances, and Karson had to come up big,” Boston University coach Jack Parker said. “If we don’t get great goaltending in the first period, it’s a completely different game.” -From USCHO
