BOSTON - Graduate student Mary Parker scored her 17th goal of the season and senior goaltender Victoria Hanson made a career-high 45 saves, but the Boston University women's ice hockey team was defeated by No. 2 Minnesota, 5-1, on Friday night at Walter Brown Arena.


Final Score: #2 Minnesota 5, Boston University 1
Records: BU (11-7-1, 7-6-0 WHEA), #2 Minnesota (15-2-2, 12-2-2 WCHA)
Location: Walter Brown Arena - Boston, Mass.


- Minnesota scored three times in the first period to take a 3-0 lead.

- The Gophers scored just 1:48 into the proceedings on the power play.

- They then took advantage of some good fortune, as a BU stick broke on a Terrier power play at the top of the offensive zone. Kate Schipper swiped the puck and went all the way to make it 2-0.

- The Gophers extended the lead to 3-0 at 7:47 of the first period.

- BU had good movement on its second power play of the period, with Parker nearly scoring on the doorstep, but the Terriers were unable to break through.

- Minnesota extended the lead to 4-0 with 3:30 to play in the middle frame in a fairly even period in which the Terriers racked up seven of their 15 shots on goal.

- Parker used a terrific individual effort to score her goal with 8:53 remaining in regulation. She forced a turnover at the BU blue line and raced up the left wing before uncorking a shot that beat Sidney Peters (14 saves).

- Senior Samantha Sutherland was robbed in that third period by a Peters glove save, and Parker also hit the post. The Gophers then sealed the game with a marker by Lee Stecklein with at the 13:36 mark.


- Parker is now tied for second in the NCAA and first in Hockey East with 17 goals.

- She has tallied a goal in 10 of her last 11 games.

- Hanson bested her previous career high of 41 saves, which she achieved in a 4-1 win over Princeton on Nov. 26.

- Two of Hanson's three 40-save performances have been against WCHA squads. She stopped 40 shots at Wisconsin in the 2015 NCAA quarterfinal round.

- This was the first time BU hosted Minnesota at Walter Brown Arena.

- BU held Minnesota's top-ranked power play to just one goal in four chances. Hanson made seven of her 45 saves while shorthanded.


- The Terriers and Gophers will conclude this weekend's series on Saturday at 3 p.m.
