DO IT FOR DARON
The teams came together after the game to form a heart on the ice for Do It For Daron, an organization dedicated to raising awareness, inspiring conversations and transforming youth mental health.
With the Terriers clinging to a 3-2 lead, senior goaltender Victoria Hanson made 13 of her 35 saves in the third period, including three stops over two UNH power plays, to help preserve the one-goal advantage.
- Junior Victoria Bach gave BU a 1-0 lead just 1:30 into the proceedings. Graduate student Mary Parker played the puck off the half-wall for Bach, who did the rest. She turned back in her own zone, created speed up the right wing and eventually roofed a shot over Hilary Cashin (24 saves).
- UNH evened the score with a power-play tally late in the period to send the teams into the first intermission deadlocked at 1-1.
- BU once again got off to a fast start in the second period when Leslie took a feed from classmate Nina Rodgers and scored her 11th goal of the season just 1:25 into the stanza.
- Senior co-captain Alexis Crossley extended the lead to 3-1 with what proved to be the game-winning goal. Her blast from the point got through everybody on a Terrier power play for her second strike of the season.
- The Wildcats answered with a power-play goal of their own to cut the deficit to 3-2 entering the third period.
- Bach brought the Terrier lead back to two goals with just 2:46 remaining in regulation when she burst up the left wing and beat Cashin for her 20th goal of the campaign.
- Just 33 seconds after Bach's marker, senior Maddie Elia added an empty-netter to seal the victory.
- Thanks to its sweep of UNH, BU moved into third place alone with 24 points, one point ahead of third-place Vermont and three points clear of fifth-place Providence, though both teams have a game in hand on the Terriers.
- Bach became just the second Terrier in program history to score 20 goals in three consecutive seasons. Sarah Lefort also accomplished that feat (2012-15).
- Elia extended her point streak to five games (3g, 5a) with her two-point (1g, 1a) afternoon. She has yet to be held pointless since returning to the lineup on Jan. 28 after a five-game absence.
- Junior Nina Rodgers moved her point streak to four games (2g, 3a) with an assist on Leslie's goal.
- Seven different Terriers tallied an assist on Saturday, including graduate student Mary Parker, freshman Deziray De Sousa, junior Savannah Newton and freshman Abby Cook.
BU will host crosstown rival Northeastern on Friday, Feb. 17, at Walter Brown Arena.
Puck drop is set for 7 p.m.
