Oettinger Stops All 33, BU Gets a Bye

Behind a 33 save shutout by Jake Oettinger, BU blanked Vermont 2-0 in front of 3,654 at Agganis and in the process, locked up a first-round bye in the Hockey East tournament.

Maine lost 6-3 to Boston College at the Heights tonight and that, paired with the BU win, means the Terriers clinch fourth place and a first-round bye to the quarterfinals. BU can host either UConn or Maine.

Drew Melanson redirected a Jordan Greenway pass into the net on the power play 5:37 into the game to open the scoring. Late in the second, David Farrance potted his first collegiate goal to double the Terrier lead.

BU was perfect on the PK tonight, killing all four UVM man advantages.

The two teams will go back at it tomorrow night on senior night. Oettinger will be back in net per coach Quinn. Logan Cockerill missed tonight’s contest with the flu and Patrick Harper will still be out, but Quinn promised more news on that front tomorrow night.
