Hockey East and local roundup

11/21/2010

Boston University topped New Hampshire on Saturday to avenge the Terriers' loss Friday night. In other Hockey East action:

Providence 5, Northeastern 0

After rallying Friday night to tie Providence 3-3, the Huskies (2-7-3) came out swinging on Saturday with five different players scoring goals to run the Friars (5-5-3) right out Northeastern's Matthews Arena. Senior Wade MacLeod led the Huskies with three points on a goal (the game-winner) and two assists. NU sophomore Chris Rawlings earned the shutout for Northeastern.

Merrimack 3, UMass Lowell 2

The Merrimack Warriors (4-2-4) took Friday's matchup at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell 4-3 and then held serve at home to complete the weekend sweep of the River Hawks (2-8-2). After spotting the Warriors a three-goal lead after the first period, UMass Lowell stormed back with two goals in the second, but couldn't get the equalizer against Merrimack's Joe Cannata (10 saves). Merrimack's Chris Barton got the game-winning tally. Lowell goalies Doug Carr and Marc Boulanger combined for 34 saves in the loss.

In local ECAC Hockey action:

Quinnipiac 5, Harvard 4

In a see-saw affair at Quinnipiac, the Crimson (2-4-0) stormed back with three unanswered goals in the last four minutes of the second period to tie the game 4-4 only to let the Bobcats (7-4-1) slip away with the win on a third-period strike by Ben Arnt. The game-winning goal was Arnt's second of the game, ruining the Crimson's comeback bid.
