TONIGHT’S VIEWING: ESPN2. Lineup notes: No surprises.
Boston University 1, UND 0 — Jack Eichel (Danny O’Regan, Ahti Oksanen) 4:59 (pp). O’Regan has the puck at the side of the crease and sends a backhand pass across to the other side. Stecher collapsed around the net to help out McIntyre, but ended up blocking him from moving over and stopping Eichel’s shot.
Boston University 2, UND 0 — Brandon Hickey (Cason Hohmann, Robbie Baillargeon) 19:17 (pp). BU goes 2-for-2 on the power play when Hickey gets the puck at the point and blasts a shot through traffic.
Boston University 2, UND 1 — Luke Johnson (Tucker Poolman, Jordan Schmaltz) :44 (pp). Johnson has the puck, skating only a couple inches over the end line and snaps a bad-angle shot past O’Connor on the short side.
Boston University 3, UND 1 — A.J. Greer (Jack Eichel, Brien Diffley) 11:20. After a dominant opening 11 minutes of the period, BU comes down and scores from the top of the circle. Greer one-times a shot that Zane usually stops.
Boston University 4, UND 1 — Doyle Somerby (Brien Diffley) 13:10. Another goal from way out gets past McIntyre as Somerby launches a shot from the halfwall that gets past McIntyre on the far side.
Boston University 4, UND 2 — Troy Stecher 12:10 (sh). O’Connor goes to play the puck at the side of the net, but botches it and Stecher is there to score UND’s 12th shorthanded goal of the season.
Boston University 4, UND 3 — Connor Gaarder (Nick Mattson, Brendan O’Donnell) 16:17 (pp). Mattson makes a brilliant feed, drawing the defenders toward him and dishing a backhand to Gaarder, who buries it to make it a one-goal game.
Boston University 5, UND 3 — Jack Eichel (Cason Hohmann) 19:41 (en). Hohmann digs the puck out, gets it to Eichel, who ices it with an ENG.
