BOSTON - A thrilling college hockey game came down to the final moments on Friday evening as Denver's Troy Terry scored with 16.1 seconds to lift the top-ranked Pioneers past No. 6 Boston University, 4-3, at Agganis Arena.
Sophomore defenseman Dante Fabbro evened the game with 6:39 left in regulation with his second goal of the season as the Terriers erased deficits of 2-0 and 3-2 before ultimately coming up just short. BU now stands at an even 3-3-1 while Denver improves to 3-0-2.
HOW IT HAPPENED
- BU fell into a quick 2-0 hole, as the Pioneers drew a penalty while opening the scoring at 2:51 and then scored again on the ensuing power play just over a minute later.
- The Terriers were able to equalize, however, thanks to freshman Ty Amonte's first collegiate goal and a power-play tally from junior Bobo Carpenter.
- Denver took a 3-2 lead into the first intermission following Colin Staub's second goal of the opening stanza.
- BU got the final power play of the game with 12:23 left in regulation and proceeded to dominate the next six minutes of action before finally being rewarded with Fabbro's marker at 13:21 of the third.
- Just when it looked like the teams were headed to overtime, Terry created space in the left circle and before writing a puck past BU netminder Jake Oettinger for the winner.
- The Pioneers' first two goals both came off rebounds at the left crease with Jake Durfinger getting the first and Staub potting the second.
- Amonte's tally came from the foot of the right circle following a cross-ice pass from senior Drew Melanson.
- Carpenter was the beneficiary of a perfect drop pass by junior Jordan Greenway, who quickly gathered a rebound off a left-point shot by sophomore Chad Krys and found his classmate to make it a 2-2 game at 12:38 of the first.
- Staub gave the visitors a 3-2 advantage when he registered a power-play goal from the left slot with just 1:32 left in the first.
- After nearly 35 minutes without a goal being scored, Fabbro ignited the Agganis crowd when his bid from the high slot beat DU netminder Tanner Jaillet high glove side to draw even once again.
- BU held a 29-26 shot advantage, including a 23-14 margin in the final two periods.
- The Terriers went 1-for-5 on the power play while Denver went 2-of-4.
- Carpenter has now scored six goals in the past three goals and all of them have come on special teams (4 PP, 2 SH).
- Oettinger made 22 saves for the Terriers and Jaillet picked up the win with a 26-save performance.
- Melanson's assist was his first point as a Terrier after tallying 43 points (17g, 26a) in three seasons at Rensselaer.
- This marked the first time in Terriers' past meetings with a No. 1-ranked team that they suffered a loss (2-1-2).
- The Terriers will return to action on Saturday (Oct. 28) they visit No. 11/10 Providence.
- Game time at Schneider Arena is set for 7 p.m.
