BOSTON - Senior Samantha Sutherland's shorthanded strike capped a third-period comeback and lifted the Boston University women's ice hockey team to a 4-3 win over New Hampshire in game two of a Hockey East quarterfinal series on Saturday afternoon at Walter Brown Arena.
Final Score: Boston University 4, New Hampshire 3
Records: BU (18-11-6), UNH (14-18-2)
Location: Walter Brown Arena - Boston, Mass.
- UNH took a 1-0 lead just 5:40 into the game, but Elia evened the score at the 12:07 mark of the opening period. She won an offensive zone faceoff to herself and quickly ripped a wrister into the top corner for her 12th goal of the season.
- The Wildcats regained their one-goal lead late in the frame and added to it 3:45 into the second stanza with a power-play marker.
- Leslie cut the deficit back to one with a power-play goal of her own. Freshman Breanna Scarpaci began the sequence with an outlet pass to Elia, who sent a pass up to Leslie at the UNH blue line. Leslie's bid was stopped, but the puck caromed in off a Wildcat skate for Leslie's 14th goal of the season.
- Crossley tied the game at the 5:38 mark of the final frame with a shot from the top of the zone for her fourth goal of the season. Junior Victoria Bach and graduate student Mary Parker provided the assists.
- Sutherland then secured the game-winner with a shorthanded strike at the 8:14 mark. She collected a loose puck in her own zone and did the rest, skating into the UNH zone and uncorking a shot past Hilary Cashin for her 14th goal of the season.
- UNH appeared to tie the game at the end of a Terrier penalty with less than three minutes to play, but after video review the call was overturned and the score remained at 4-3.
SAVING THE SEASON
- Senior goaltender Victoria Hanson made 17 saves, but none was bigger than her stop on a Devan Taylor breakaway bid in the second period. That save kept the Wildcats ahead by just two at 3-1.
- Elia extended her point streak to nine games (5g, 6a) with her two-point day. She has yet to be held without a point since returning to the Terrier lineup on Jan. 28.
- This is the second straight season in which the Terriers' quarterfinal series has required a third game.
- Crossley has recorded a goal in each of the last two games.
- Bach matched her career high with her 48th point on Saturday.
- Sutherland's goal was the Terriers' first shorthanded marker of the season.
- BU outshot UNH, 40-20, and held the Wildcats to a 1-of-6 mark on the power play.
- The first three goals of the game were unassisted and four total had no assists.
GAME THREE SUNDAY
- The Terriers and Wildcats will face off in the third and deciding game on Sunday for a berth in the Hockey East semifinals.
- Puck drop is set for 3 p.m.
