BOSTON - Sophomore Chad Krys broke a scoreless tie with goals less than two minutes apart and classmate Jake Oettinger stopped all 31 shots he face to lead the No. 12/11 Boston University men's ice hockey team to a 2-0 victory over No. 6 Providence on Friday evening at Agganis Arena.

BU, which dropped a 3-0 road decision to the Friars last Saturday, evens its overall record at 4-4-1 and improves to 2-1-1 in Hockey East play. Providence now stands at 5-3-0 on the year with a 2-2-0 conference mark.


- BU rebounded from a slow start during which it allowed 11 of the game's first 12 shots.

- After a pair of scoreless periods, Krys got the Terriers on the scoreboard with a perfectly executed give-and-go with fellow sophomore Patrick Harper in the eighth minute of the third.

- Krys picked off a Providence pass in the neutral zone and passed off to Harper, who then returned the puck along the left side before Krys snapped a shot past PC netminder Hayden Hawkey from the foot of the left circle with 12:42 left in regulation.

- Moments later, Krys once again intercepted a pass and this time did all the work himself, streaking through the bottom of the slot, left to right, before pushing a backhand past Hawkey's reach at the 8:55 mark.

- Providence pulled Hawkey in favor of an extra attacker for the final two minutes of the game but could not solve Oettinger and the Terrier defense.


- This was the first two-goal game for Krys as a Terrier as he entered the night with five career tallies.

- Oettinger picked up his first shutout of the season after recording four last season as a rookie.

- The respective power-play units for both squads were held at bay with Providence going 0-for-5 and the Terriers coming up empty on all four of their chances with the man advantage.

- BU held a 35-31 shot advantage.

- Sophomore Dante Fabbro recorded seven blocked shots on the night to become the first player in the nation to reach 30 blocks this season.


- "I didn't care how we did it, what the score was, how it looked, we needed a win tonight. We needed to feel good about ourselves. Obviously our start tonight wasn't what we wanted (outshot 11-1 to start the game). I thought we were a step slow and after we killed some penalties and in the last five minutes, we started playing better and spent some time in the offensive zone. I thought the next two periods we played much better and the third was our best period of the night. Obviously, Chad makes two great plays and our goalie looked like a big-time goalie.""


- The Terriers will close out a home weekend on Saturday (Nov. 4) when they play host to crosstown rival Northeastern.

- The game at Agganis Arena against the 15th-ranked Huskies is set for 7 p.m.
