BOSTON - A three-goal opening period by visiting Michigan proved to be too much to overcome as the No. 10/11 Boston University men's ice hockey team dropped a 4-2 contest to the 12th-ranked Wolverines on Saturday at Agganis Arena.

BU had its six-game unbeaten streak (4-0-2) snapped and now stands at 6-4-2 on the season. Saturday's result secured a weekend split following the Terriers' 3-2 comeback win over Michigan on Friday.

Seniors Matt Lane and Ahti Oksanen scored goals for BU, which got a 34-save effort in goal from sophomore Connor LaCouvee.

The Wolverines jumped out to a quick lead and never looked back. Junior Tyler Motte scored on the first power play of the contest at 3:50 of the first and freshman Brendan Warren made it a 2-0 contest just over four minutes later.

The visitors tacked on one more power-play goal before the first intermission. Junior Alex Kile provided that tally with 2:53 remaining in the opening stanza to push him team's cushion to three goals.

BU got on the board with just 2:23 left in the second when Oksanen found Lane with a diagonal pass through the neutral zone. Lane skated in all alone through the right circle before beating Michigan netminder Steve Racine at the crease for his fourth goal of the season.

The Terriers had a chance to get within one on a power play that stretched into the opening minute of the third but were unable to take advantage of it.

Michigan (6-2-1) added an insurance goal at 16:32 of the third from the stick of junior Max Shuart before Oksanen made it a 4-2 final on a one-timer from the high slot in the closing seconds. Senior Danny O'Regan and freshman Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson assisted on Oksanen's team-leading seventh marker of the season.

Racine made 19 saves for Michigan, which held a sizable 38-21 shot advantage. The Wolverines converted on two of their four power-play opportunities while killing off both of BU's man-up chances.

The Terriers will return to action on Tuesday (Nov. 24) when they host Bentley at 7 p.m. to close out a four-game homestand.
