BOSTON - In the highest attended college hockey game in eastern United States history, Boston University defeated archrival Boston College, 3-2, Friday night at Fenway Park in front of 38,472 fans. The Terriers, who were playing in their first outdoor game in over 50 years, jumped out to a 3-0 lead before holding off the No. 7/8 Eagles to improve to 6-9-3 overall and 4-7-2 in Hockey East play.
Sophomore David Warsofsky opened the scoring in the first period before junior Joe Pereira and freshman Wade Megan
added second-period tallies to make it a 3-0 advantage. BC scored a late power-play goal in the second and got within one on a shorthanded tally 7:43 into the third.
Clinging to the 3-2 lead with just over two minutes to play in the game, the Terriers caught a break when BC's Brian Gibbons was sent to the box, putting the Terriers on a man-up advantage for nearly the remainder of the game. The Eagles pulled their goalie for the final 40 seconds of the game and had a number of chances to net the equalizer, but were unable to get a clean look at the net as BU escaped from the home of the Red Sox with the gutsy 3-2 win.
The Panthers selected Megan in the fifth-round (138th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. The 19-year old freshman from Canton, NY has two goals and three assists in 16 games for the Terriers this season.FULL STORY
