BOSTON - The No. 9 Boston University men's ice hockey team scored the game's first three goals before holding off visiting New Hampshire and earning a 3-2 victory on Senior Night at Agganis Arena on Saturday.

Seniors Matt Grzelcyk and Danny O'Regan each found the back of the net in their final regular-season home game and freshman Bobo Carpenter registered the eventual game-winner for the Terriers, who improve to 18-9-5 overall and 11-5-4 in Hockey East play.

Sophomore Cameron Marks recorded a goal and an assist for the Wildcats, who move to 10-16-6 on the year with a 4-10-6 conference mark.

BU held a 34-21 shot advantage as sophomore Connor LaCouvee picked up the win in goal with a 19-save effort. Fellow sophomore Danny Tirone turned aside 31 Terrier shots for the Wildcats.

In all, nine Terriers recorded one point on the night, as the team spread the wealth to stay in the running for a first-round bye in the Hockey East playoffs.

BU went 2-of-5 on the power play and opened the scoring on a man advantage when Grzelcyk got his ninth tally of the season just 5:51 in the contest. Freshman Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson and Charlie McAvoy picked up assists on the play.

O'Regan made it a 2-0 lead when he potted his fourth goal of the weekend at 13:03 of the first. His shot from left of the crease when off Tirone and in. Freshman Shane Switzer got his first collegiate point on the goal with an assist and senior Matt Lane also picked up a helped.

A nifty backhand from the foot of the left circle by Carpenter on a power play pushed the lead to 3-0 with 6:17 remaining in the middle stanza. Assists on the goal went to sophomore Brandon Fortunato and freshman Jordan Greenway.

Freshman Ara Nazarian ended LaCouvee's shutout bid at 3:16 of the third and Marks made it a one-goal affair just under three minutes later.

Despite getting a late power-play chance to create a 6-on-4 advantage, the visitors were unable to record an equalizer and the Terriers held on to secure three points in the weekend series. UNH went 0-for-3 on the power play.

The Wildcats also got assists from freshman Chris Miller, sophomore Shane Eiserman and junior Matias Cleland.

The Terriers, who can finish anywhere between third and fifth in the Hockey East standings, will close out the regular season next weekend with a two-game series at No. 7 Notre Dame. Both games will be televised on the NBC Sports Network with Friday's puck drop set for 7:30 p.m.
