The next night, Terrier captain Matt Grzelcyk (Charlestown, Mass.) gave BU a 1-0 lead at 11:10 of the second stanza and held that lead until Ryan Fitzgerald (North Reading, Mass.) found the equalizer with 2:05 left in the third period to salvage a 1-1 draw ... UConn and goaltender Rob Nichols (Dallas, Texas) took three points from Maine at Alfond Arena thanks in part to the netminder's career-high 44 saves in a 1-0 win Friday night ...
