Boston, Mass. - Down 2-1 after two periods, the No. 11/12 Boston University men's ice hockey team got a game-tying tally from freshman Jack Eichel before junior Matt Lane score with 3:10 left to play, as Terriers earned a thrilling 3-2 victory over No. 14 Michigan on Saturday evening at Agganis Arena.

BU is now 3-0 to start a season for the first time in six seasons and will aim for its first 4-0 start in 13 years when it visits No. 5 Providence on Halloween.

Junior Matt O'Connor stopped 38 shots to complete an impressive two-win weekend in goal for the Terriers.

BU erased deficits of 1-0 and 2-1 before Lane tipped in an offering from freshman Brandon Hickey to send the Agganis crowd into a frenzy at the 16:50 mark of the third. Sophomore Nick Roberto also assisted on the go-ahead goal.

Michigan held a 40-34 shot advantage and got a 31-save performance from sophomore Zach Nagelvoort. Both of the Wolverines' goals came on the power play, as the visitors got five chances with man advantage and killed off both of BU's opportunities.

The visitors opened the scoring 8:07 into the contest when freshman Zach Werenski scored from the high slot on a power play with assists from junior Boo Nieves and classmate Dylan Larkin.

Just like he did in Friday's 1-0 win over Michigan State, junior Ahti Oksanen scored in the opening minute of the second period for the Terriers. A pass from classmate Danny O'Regan found its way to Oksanen above the left post. In traffic, Oksanen poked the puck through Nagelvoort's legs to make it a 1-1 contest 34 seconds into the middle stanza.

Sophomore Alex Kile regained the lead for the Wolverines on the man advantage when he backhanded the puck past O'Connor at 8:33 of the second. Larkin and Werenksi picked up the helpers on the play. Faced with their second deficit of the night, BU got another equalizer at 2:29 of the third.

Skating in from the left circle, Eichel was in the right place at the right time, as a shot by sophomore Doyle Somerby went off the shaft of Eichel's stick and under Nagelvoort for his third goal of the young season. O'Regan earned his second assist of the night on Eichel's marker.

Freshman Brandon Fortunato, who assisted on Oksanen's tally, tied Michigan's Michael Downing for the game high in blocked shots with four.

The Terriers will kick off a home-and-home series with the Friars at Schneider Arena on Friday (Oct. 31) before coming back to Agganis on Saturday (Nov. 1).
