The Wildcats took just one shot during BU’s lone man advantage of the game after 1:56 of the Terriers passing the puck but failing to register a chance.

  1. I know this has nothing to do with the men's loss to UNH ... but who cares. OMG what a proud day to be a fan of the Women's Ice Hockey Program at Boston University. Poo rules ... and she's coming back to play for BU next year. Now that's something to be excited about. I am an American but today I crossed "party" lines.
