DENVER - The No. 2 Boston University men's ice hockey team dropped a 3-1 contest at No. 10 Denver on Saturday evening at Magness Arena as the Pioneers completed a weekend sweep.


Final Score: #10 Denver 3, #2 Boston University 1
Records: BU (1-2-0), Denver (2-2-0)
Location: Magness Arena - Denver, Colo.


- Freshman Kieffer Bellows tied the game at 1-1 with his first collegiate goal 43 seconds into the third period but Henrik Borgstrom scored his second goal of the contest with 9:37 left in regulation to lift the Pioneers to the weekend sweep.

- Both of those goals came on the power play and Denver added an empty-netter from Tyson McLellan with 25 seconds left to create the 3-1 final.

- The Terriers put together a strong effort in the first period, limiting the home team to just three shots and creating a handful of good chances, but were unable to strike first.

- Bergstrom opened the scoring on a tough-angle shot from the foot of the left circle that eluded BU goaltender Jake Oettinger 1:37 into the middle period.

- Sophomore Charlie McAvoy and freshman Patrick Harper assisted on Bellows' tally, which came from the far side of the right circle. The freshman spun around and fired a shot that went off the far post and in.

- Backstroke's winner came off a rush as the freshman took a pass from Troy Terry and backhanded a shot over Oettinger's left shoulder.

- Oettinger tallied 20 saves for the Terriers while Tanner Jaillet picked up the win in goal with a 24-save performance.


- The Terriers held a 25-23 shot advantage.

- BU went 1-of-6 on the power play and killed off six of seven man advantages for Denver.

- Harper has at least one point in all three games to start his career and has a team-best five points on two goals and three assists.

- Freshman Clayton Keller recorded a game-high five shots.

- Denver now holds a 16-15-2 advantage in the all-time series.


- The Terriers will welcome Sacred Heart to Agganis Arena for the home opener on Friday (Oct. 21) as part of Family & Friends Weekend.

- It will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools.
