This was a strange, streaky kind of game. Both teams had nine, yes nine power plays and both teams went 2 for 9 on said power plays. BC opened the scoring on five on three goal in the first and took a 2-0 lead into the dressing room after one. Peter Herald and Andrew Orpik both found twine for the Eagles.
BU respond by scoring the game's next four goals. Kevin Schaeffer, on the power play and Eric Thomassian scored in the second frame. Brandon Yip and Brad Zancanaro (power play) scored in the third. The Zancanaro goal was the eventual game winner. Brett Motherwell's third period strike registered BC's only goal after the first stanza.
John Curry made 30 saves in his second victory over the Eagles on the year. BC was number one in the country coming into the game.
“He’s the best goaltender in BU history as far as stats are concerned,” said Terriers head coach Jack Parker, defending the consistent play of his own goaltender. “He’s a hell of a goaltender and we like how he’s playing right now.” - From USCHO

Behind a strong crowd (6,156) back in their home barn, BU ground out a 3-1 over UMass. The Terriers picked up two goals over the first two periods from Kenny Roche and Bryan Ewing. The lead was threatened when Chris Davis scored a short handed goal midway though the third. Peter MacArthur silenced any hope of come back with a goal five minutes later.
“I thought John Curry played great. The three stars in my mind were John Curry, John Curry, and John Curry. That’s why it was a struggle because we didn’t play as hard as UMass did; we didn’t match their intensity.” From USCHO
With the two wins, BU extended the nation's best win streak to seven games in a row.
Current Record: 14-8-2
Current Ranking: 8, up five slots from 13.
