Boston University Defeats New Hampshire, 5-2
Freshman forward Joel Farabee scored a goal and two assists for the Terriers

BOSTON - Freshman Joel Farabee and junior Dante Fabbro each had a goal and two assists to lift the Boston University men's ice hockey team to a 5-2 victory over New Hampshire on Friday evening at Agganis Arena.

Soon after UNH erased a 2-0 BU lead, Farabee gave the Terriers the lead for good with the game-winner at 4:52 of the third.

The Terriers extended their unbeaten streak to four games (3-0-1) and improved to 7-8-3 overall and 6-5-2 in Hockey East play. UNH falls to 6-8-6 on the year with a 2-5-3 conference mark.


HOW IT HAPPENED

- For the second time this week, a freshman on BU's fourth forward line scored his first collegiate goal on the first shift of the night.

- DeBoer executed a perfect give-and-go with senior Ryan Cloonan along the left side, redirecting the pass-back to the net just 2:17 into the contest.

- BU doubled its lead later in the first on a power play as a seeing-eye shot by Fabbro from the right point eluded UNH netminder Mike Robinson.

- Liam Blackburn got the Wildcats back into the contest, scoring on a power play midway through regulation before tying the contest just 2:24 into the third.

- A hit by senior Bobo Carpenter in front of the UNH bench caused a turnover, enabling sophomore David Farrance to find Farabee with a pass off the boards that allowed the freshman to beat Robinson far post from the left circle for the game-winner.

- Sophomore Cam Crotty made it a 4-2 contest with 6:39 to play, scoring seconds after a BU power play expired thanks to quick passes by classmate Ty Amonte and junior Patrick Curry.

- Carpenter completed a three-goal run for the Terriers by scoring off a rush with 5:41 to play to push his team-leading goal total to 10.


GAME NOTES

- BU's four-game unbeaten streak is the longest current run among Hockey East teams.

- Farabee set a career high in points while Fabbro matched his career best.

- Junior Jake Oettinger turned in a 25-save effort for BU, which held a 29-27 shot advantage.

- The Terriers went 1-for-4 on the power while UNH scored on one of its three chances with the man advantage.

- Sophomore Kasper Kotkansalo tied UNH's Benton Maass for the game high in blocked shots with five.

- The win allowed the Terriers to complete a series sweep of the Wildcats for the second straight year.

- BU is now undefeated in its past nine contests (7-0-2) against UNH.


UP NEXT
