BOSTON, Mass. - The Boston University men's ice hockey team had a three-game win streak snapped on Saturday evening in a 3-1 loss to Maine at Agganis Arena.

The Black Bears scored once in each period, capped by an empty-netter, and led wire-to-wire to earn a weekend split following the Terriers' 3-2 victory on Friday.

BU was unbeaten in its previous four games (3-0-1) and now sits at 3-5-1 overall and 3-3-1 in Hockey East play. Maine improves to 4-5-1 with a 2-3-1 conference record.


HOW IT HAPPENED

- Maine had just one power play all contest but made the most of it as Mitchell Fossier scored off a rebound by the left post 10:58 into the contest.

- Just 15 seconds after matching minors early in the second, the Black Bears doubled their lead on a tally by Chase Pearson.

- BU cut the deficit to 2-1 midway through the middle period when senior Bobo Carpenter scored his team-leading sixth goal of the season.

- Sophomore Logan Cockerill curled behind the net to the left post and left the puck for Carpenter, who sent it in at 9:50.

- The Terriers had six power plays on the night, including three with the score 2-1, but could not take advantage of the opportunities.

- BU pulled goaltender Jake Oettinger in favor of an extra attacker with 1:15 to play but Pearson pounced on a loose puck and scored on the empty net from Maine's zone to seal the victory for the visitors.


GAME NOTES

- Jeremy Swayman earned first-star honors by stopping 40 BU shots as the Terriers held a 41-25 shot advantage.

- Junior Dante Fabbro picked up an assist on Carpenter's goal to stretch his point streak to five games (2g, 7a).

- Oettinger turned in a 22-save effort for the Terriers.


UP NEXT

- BU will head overseas on Sunday for a weeklong trip to the island of Ireland, where they will spend a full day in Dublin before heading to Belfast, Northern Ireland, for the 2018 Friendship Four.

- The Terriers will face Uconn on Friday (Nov. 23) in the semifinal round at 2 p.m. ET.

- That will close out a stretch of eight straight Hockey East contests for the Terriers.

- They will face either Yale or Union on Saturday (Nov. 24).
