Sophomore goaltender Dan Sullivan made 38 saves for the Black Bears

BOSTON, Mass. - Sophomore goaltender Dan Sullivan stopped 38 shots to backstop Maine to a two-game road sweep at Boston University with a 3-1 win on Saturday at Agganis Arena.

After Maine opened the scoring in the closing seconds of the first period on a wrister from the right circle by freshman John Parker, BU tied it up on a power-play goal by sophomore Garrett Noonan at 2:41 of the second.

The Black Bears (14-8-3, 11-7-2 HEA) regained the lead soon after, however, on junior Nick Pryor's first collegiate goal at the 6-minute mark of the middle stanza.

Maine added an empty-netter by junior Matt Mangene in the closing seconds to seal the victory and a weekend sweep of the Terriers. BU moves to 15-8-1 overall and 12-6-1 in Hockey East play.

Senior Kieran Millan was strong in goal for the Terriers, making 34 saves, including 20 in the first period.

Despite being outshot, 21-8, in the opening period, BU held a 39-37 shot advantage for the game. The Terriers went 1-of-5 on the power play and held the Black Bears scoreless on their first seven chances with the man advantage before the late empty-netter came on their eighth and final power play of the evening.

BU, which is now tied with No. 7/8 Boston College for first place in the league standings, will return to action on Friday (Feb. 3) when it travels to face No. 5 Merrimack for a 7 p.m. contest that will be broadcast live on WBIN. The teams have split their two previous meetings this season.
