BOSTON - Senior Corinne Schroeder made 19 saves but the Boston University women's ice hockey was shut out by Maine, 2-0, on Sunday afternoon at Walter Brown Arena.
Schroeder turned in a second straight strong performance between the pipes, but Loryn Porter turned aside all 37 Terrier shots to help Maine (5-6-0, 5-6-0 HE) earn a weekend split against BU (2-3-0, 2-3-0 HE).
HOW IT HAPPENED
- BU controlled much of the play during the opening 20 minutes, outshooting the Black Bears, 14-7.
- The Terriers attempted 11 shots during a 3:34 stretch of power play time, but Porter and the Maine defense kept the contest scoreless.
- Maine got on the board with 2:16 remaining in the second stanza when a Kennedy Little shot deflected off of Ida Kuoppala and found a way past Schroeder.
- The Black Bears then added to their lead with less than a minute remaining in the frame.
- BU pushed for a goal during the entire third period, eventually pulling Schroeder in favor of an extra attacker for the final five minutes of the tilt, but despite a power play during that span, the Terriers were unable to light the lamp.
- Schroeder's shutout streak ended at 113:37.
- Schroeder and junior Nicole McGuigan had combined for a shutout streak of 133:37 that dated back to Dec. 11.
- This was the first time the Terriers were shut out at home since Dec. 31, 2018.
- Freshman Tamara Giaquinto led the Terriers with six shots on goal.
- BU finished the weekend 5-for-5 on the penalty kill and has allowed just one power-play goal in 14 opportunities.
- With the Hockey East future schedule now being announced week-to-week, the Terriers will learn their next opponent on Tuesday.
