“We’re fortunate we got bailed out. We can’t keep playing with fire the way we are,” said Terriers head coach David Quinn after yet another close game.
You can take that quote and apply it to several games that the Boston University Men’s Hockey team (8-4-2, 3-1-2) has played this season, including Saturday’s 2-2 tie against the Providence College Friars (5-6-3, 1-4-2).
Penalties again were the root of the Terriers’ problems, as BU totaled twenty minutes in the box on ten penalties, including five in the 2nd period.
But it was the talent that prevailed for BU on Saturday. Junior’s Brandon Hickey and Nikolas Olsson each scored in the final 5:10 of the game to knot the score at two, keeping the Terriers point streak alive at three games.
BU was able to pick up three points on the weekend, following Saturday’s tie and Friday night’s 2-1 victory over the Friars. The team now has eight points in the Hockey East conference, good for a sixth-place tie with the Connecticut Huskies.
The Terriers will travel to Burlington, VT next weekend to play a two-game series against the Vermont Catamounts (9-3-2, 4-2-1).
