ALLSTON, Mass. - Freshman Joel Farabee scored the game-tying goal and classmate Matthew Quercia opened the scoring for the Boston University men's ice hockey team in a 2-2 draw at Harvard on Tuesday evening at Bright-Landry Hockey Center.

- The Terriers used a power play of their own to send the game into overtime as Farabee buried a chance from the right side off a pass by junior Patrick Harper with 14:06 left in regulation.

- Both defenses held strong for the rest of the night and the crosstown rivals settled for a tie.
