HANOVER, N.H. - The top-ranked Boston University men's ice hockey team fell for the second time this week as Dartmouth used a pair of second-period goals by junior Brad Schierhorn to earn a 2-0 shutout win on Sunday afternoon at Thompson Arena.
BU (9-3-1), playing its fifth game in 10 days, was unable to capitalize on its chances against Dartmouth netminder James Kruger and was outshot by the Big Green, 36-23.
Schierhorn opened the scoring midway through the game and then added another tally just over five minutes later to provide all the scoring his team would need. The Big Green improved to 4-3-1 with the victory.
Freshman Connor LaCouvee turned in a 34-save effort for the Terriers, who had two power-play chances in the game. BU killed off both of Dartmouth's chances with the man advantage.
After a scoreless first period where each team had strong scoring chances, Schierhorn deposited the puck at the foot of the left circle at the 10:17 mark of the middle stanza. Senior Tyler Sikura earned the primary assist on that goal as well as the next one, which came at 15:18 of the period. Junior Rick Pinston started the play when his shot from the right point created a rebound.
The recipe was the same for the next goal, as a shot by junior Eric Robinson was saved by LaCouvee before Sikura jumped on the rebound and got the puck to Schierhorn.
Looking to continue the third-period success they have enjoyed all season, the Terriers generated a handful of great looks but could not get any of the 13 shots they generated in the final frame past Kruger.
Freshman Brien Diffley registered a game-high five blocked shots for BU while junior Ahti Oksanen led all players with five shots.
The Terriers will return to action on Friday (Dec. 5) when they visit Merrimack to kick off a weekend home-and-home series with the Warriors. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
