BOSTON - The No. 8 Boston University men's ice hockey team capped a successful first home weekend on Saturday with a 3-0 victory over No. 4/3 Quinnipiac at Agganis Arena.
Final Score: #8 Boston University 3, #4/3 Quinnipiac 0
Records: BU (3-2-0), Quinnipiac (3-2-1)
Location: Agganis Arena - Boston, Mass.
HOW IT HAPPENED
- Boston University got a goal from a sophomore in each period and freshman Jake Oettinger saved all 22 shots he faced to earn his second shutout of the weekend.
- Sophomore Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson had a hand in all three goals, assisting on the first two before tacking on a shorthanded empty-netter with just under a minute left in regulation.
- The Terriers allowed the Bobcats to have 12 power-play opportunities, but the penalty kill was up to the task, extending its streak to 22 straight successful kills.
- Jordan Greenway opened the scoring for the second time in as many nights, capping a give-and-go with Forsbacka Karlsson in transition with a backhander from the slot at 6:11 of the opening period.
- Bobo Carpenter finished off a 2-on-1 with freshman Patrick at 7:55 of the second to push the lead to 2-0.
- Junior John MacLeod and sophomore Charlie McAvoy each picked up an assist on the night.
- This marked Quinnipiac's first shutout loss during the regular season in over four years (10/14/12 vs. Robert Morris).
- Oettinger is the first BU netminder since Sean Maguire in March 2013 to post back-to-back shutouts.
- Harper has at least one point in all five games to start his career and has a team-best eight points on two goals and six assists.
- The Terriers have four shorthanded goals through five games after tallying only two all of last season.
- The Terriers will take a two-week break from the schedule before returning to action on Friday, Nov. 4, at Northeastern in the opener of a weekend home-and-home series.
- The game, which starts at 7 p.m., will be the Terriers' Hockey East opener.
