Box Score

BOSTON, Mass. - Sophomores Dylan Peterson and Luke Tuch each tallied two goals and junior Domenick Fensore collected a career-best three assists to help lead the No. 13/14 Boston University men's ice hockey team to a 6-3 win over Boston College on Saturday night at Agganis Arena.

BU improved to 18-10-3 overall and 12-6-3 in league play with its eighth straight win. The Terriers are now 14-1-1 in their last 16 games dating back to Dec. 3.

Junior Wilmer Skoog and freshman Brian Carrabes also lit the lamp while eight different Terriers, including Fensore, produced an assist. Sophomore Nick Zabaneh matched a career high with two helpers while freshman Ty Gallagher, junior Ethan Phillips, senior captain Logan Cockerill, junior Jamie Armstrong, senior Joseph Campolieto and junior Robert Mastrosimone had one assist apiece.

Sophomore goaltender Vinny Duplessis made 28 saves to improve to 5-0-0 in February. He defeated every Beanpot school this month, earning victories over Harvard, Northeastern and BC.


- Tuch opened the scoring at the 11:34 mark of the first frame when he deftly redirected a shot from Fensore.

- Peterson made it 2-0 with 1:42 remaining in the opening period. Armstrong moved the puck up to Zabaneh, who then skated through a BC defender at the blue line to create a 2-on-1 with Peterson. Peterson's initial attempt nestled along the goal line before Eric Dop (36 saves) inadvertently knocked it into his own net.

- Skoog capped a three-goal period just 15 seconds later. Gallagher found Skoog with a terrific outlet pass from the BU blue line that hit Skoog in stride as he entered the Eagles' zone. Skoog skated in alone on Dop and made a great deke before roofing a backhander over Dop's glove.

- Jack McBain scored directly off a faceoff to cut the Terrier lead to 3-1 at 7:29 of the second stanza, but Peterson responded at the 10:48 mark. Zabaneh began the sequence with a shot from the right point. Campolieto crashed the net, and as he was being pushed from behind, somehow turned his body and got his stick on the puck to send it to Peterson at the crease for the goal.

- Tuch then made it 5-1 on the power play when he collected a feed from Cockerill and buried it for his sixth goal of the year.

- McBain scored his second of the night to make it a 5-2 game with 3:35 to play in the middle frame.

- Carrabes truly put the game out of reach at 2:43 of the third period when he redirected a Fensore shot past Dop.

- Casey Carreau converted on a shorthanded chance at 13:50 to close the scoring.


- BU improved to 137-128-21 in 286 meetings against its longtime rival.

- Fensore had previously recorded two assists on nine separate occasions; this was also the first three-point game of his Terrier career.

- Tuch matched his career high with two goals, having most recently done it against Arizona State on Jan. 8.

- He has now scored four goals in four games against BC in his brief BU career.

- Gallagher has collected four assists over two games against the Eagles this season.

- The defensive pairing of Fensore and Gallagher have each notched three-assist games against BC this season.

- The Terriers outshot the Eagles, 42-31.


- BU and BC will conclude this weekend's series on Sunday in Chestnut Hill at 4 p.m.

- That game will be televised live on NESN.
