MANCHESTER, N.H. - Junior Danny O'Regan scored 7:27 into overtime to lift the Boston University men's ice hockey team to a thrilling 3-2 victory over Yale in the opening game of the NCAA Northeast Regional on Friday afternoon at Verizon Wirless Arena.

Down 1-0 after two periods, the Terriers did not get on the board until the 49th minute of play. Junior Ahti Oksanen ended the scoring drought at 8:21 of the third and senior Evan Rodrigues gave BU a 2-1 lead less than three minutes later.

Yale sent the game to overtime, however, as Frankie DiChiara potted a wrister with 6:48 left in regulation.

Rodrigues drew a Yale penalty in the closing seconds of regulation to give the Terriers a power-play chance to start the extra session.

Despite coming up empty for the seventh time with a man advantage, BU continued to pressure the Bulldogs and sophomore goaltender Alex Lyon.

A lengthy possession in the Yale zone resulted in the winner, as O'Regan elevated a rebound over Lyon from below the left circle on assists from freshman Jack Eichel and Rodrigues.

The Terriers got a 21-save performance in goal from junior Matt O'Connor and peppered Lyon with 42 shots. BU held a 20-4 shot advantage after the second period.

The Terriers will face Minnesota-Duluth in the regional final on Saturday (March 28) at 5:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.
