Terriers Make Quick Work of Maine

Just over five minutes into tonight's game between the Terriers and Black Bears, BU's offense picked up where it left off last night. Bobo Carpenter and Doyle Somerby scored 31 seconds apart and BU was off and running.

Carpenters' goal came off a mini breakaway in the low slot set up by a nice pass from Robbie Baillargeon. Oskar Andèrn also picked up his first collegiate point on the play. Somerby's goal was of the wrap-around version and was unassisted.

Carpenter added a power play goal in the second period to extend the Terrier lead. Charlie McAvoy and Matt Lane picked up assists on the play.

Lane notched his first of two on the night midway through the second. Jordan Greenway gave way to Ahti Oksanen outside the attacking zone to create a two on one for Oksanen and Lane. From the slot, Ahti slid a pass over to Lane who directed it in on the far post.

Not a minute later, Maine got on the board. Cam Brown snuck one through Sean Maguire for his second of the weekend to cut the lead to 4-1.

Danny O'Regan would round out the scoring in the second frame with a rebound goal off a Doyle Somerby shot. The shot was well set up by a Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson drop pass in the high slot.

Matt Lane added BU's sixth goal 3:54 into the third period. It was Lane's second marker of the game and the second time Oksanen had the primary assist on his goal.

Sean Maguire finished with 22 saves. Maine's starting goalie Rob McGovern was yanked after BU's fourth goal. He finished with 18 saves in 31:57 of game time. Matt Morris didn't fare much better, as he allowed 2 goals on 15 shots.

BU will host Merrimack next Friday night in their lone game of the weekend.
