BOSTON - Junior Doyle Somerby scored with 2:54 left in regulation to cap a furious rally and lift the No. 10/11 Boston University men's ice hockey team to a 3-2 victory over No. 12 Michigan on Friday evening in the opener of a weekend series at Agganis Arena.

Down 2-0 after 50 minutes of play, the Terriers tied it up in an instant with goals by senior Danny O'Regan and junior Robbie Baillargeon just 12 seconds apart.

Sophomore goaltender Connor LaCouvee made 26 save, none bigger than a stop on a penalty shot by Michigan junior Tyler Motte less than a minute after the Terriers made it a 2-2 game.

With three minutes left in the third, junior Doyle Somerby picked off a clearing attempt to keep the puck in the U-M zone before flinging a shot from the left point that eluded Michigan goaltender Steve Racine.

BU held on despite giving the Wolverines a late power-play chance and stretched its unbeaten streak to six at 4-0-2. The Terriers now stand at 6-3-2 on the year while Michigan moves to 5-2-1.

The Terriers held a 31-28 shot advantage, including a 14-4 edge in the third, as Racine turned in a 28-save effort for the Wolverines. BU went 1-of-3 on the power play and killed off four of Michigan's five chances with the man advantage.

Junior Alex Kile opening the scoring 6:06 into the contest when he took advantage of a neutral-zone turnover and jammed home a rebound at the left post following a shot by classmate Tyler Motte.

The lead was doubled just over four minutes later on a power play as freshman Cooper Marody elevated a puck over LaCouvee outside the right crease off assists from Kile and junior J.T. Compher.

Neither team found the back of the net in the second despite a combined five power plays in the stanza.

The next power play for either team came just past the midpoint of the third when Michigan freshman Brendan Warren was sent off for hooking.

The Terriers took full advantage of the opportunity and finally got on the board when O'Regan buried a shot from the slot off a play in transition with helpers coming from senior Matt Grzelcyk and sophomore Brandon Fortunato.

Mere moments later, Baillargeon tried a wraparound that went off a Michigan defender and in to knot the score and send the Agganis crowd into a frenzy. Freshman Bobo Carpenter and sophomore A.J. Greer picked up assists on the tally.

A slashing call on Somerby during a breakaway by Motte resulted in a penalty shot for the visitors, but LaCouvee was up to the task to keep the momentum on BU's side.

After the sense of relief from Somerby following LaCouvee's big stop, the junior defenseman got his second game-winner in two weeks to keep BU undefeated at home this season (5-0-1).

The two teams will meet again on Saturday (Nov. 21) to close out the series. Game time is set for 4 p.m.
