BU Takes Round One

In a back and forth, high scoring affair, BU walked out of Conte Forum with a 7-4 win over the Eagles.

Men's Hockey at Boston College (12/1/17)

After seeing BC strike twice in the first 2:16, BU rallied back on goals from Brandon Hickey, Logan Cockerill and a shorthanded tally from Brady Tkachuk to take a 3-2 lead after one.

BC's Ron Greco scored 2:41 into the second to tie things up, but BU countered with three goals in less than three minutes to blow the game open. First, Chad Krys put home a power-play goal from Bobo Carpenter and Pat Harper. Roughly two minutes later, Brandon Hickey scored the eventual game-winner and minute after. Fifty seconds later, Carpenter notched his ninth of the year.

BC would cut it to a two-goal game off a Julius Mattila power-play goal with 50 seconds left, but that would be the closest the Eagles would get.

Shane Bowers added an empty-netter to round out the scoring.

Jake Oettinger was fabulous in the third period, making nine saves, including one to rob JD Dudek on a breakaway. All in all, Oettinger turned aside 29 shots for his sixth win of the season.

While Pat Harper didn't find the back of the net, he did add four assists tonight.

The two teams will go at it again tomorrow night at Agganis.
