BOSTON - In a game that followed a near-exact script as Friday's series opener, freshman Chad Krys scored a power-play goal with 24.9 seconds left in regulation to lift No. 8/6 Boston University to a 3-2 victory over Northeastern and a spot in the Hockey East semifinals.


Final Score: #8/6 Boston University 3, Northeastern 2
Records: BU (23-10-3), Northeastern (18-15-5)
Location: Agganis Arena - Boston, Mass.


- For the second time in as many nights, the second-seeded Terriers rallied from a 2-0 deficit to come away with a 3-2 triumph and sweep No. 8-seed Northeastern.

- Sophomore Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson had a hand in all three goals and drew the penalty that led to Krys' power-play winner.

- Northeastern opened the scoring 2:23 into the game and added another at 11:21 of the first period.

- A power-play goal from Forsbacka Karlsson got BU on the board at 14:38 of the middle stanza.

- With 16:59 left in the third, senior Nick Roberto scored his first goal since Dec. 10 on a wrister in transition.

- Krys potted the game-winner after a rebound from a Forsbacka Karlsson shot made its way to him in the left circle.


- The Terriers will be playing in the Hockey East semifinals for the 13th time in the past 16 seasons.

- BU allowed the first goal for the eighth straight game.

- Over the past six games, the Terriers have outscored their opponents 11-1 in the third period.

- BU held a slim 28-26 shot advantage and got a 24-save performance from freshman Jake Oettinger.

- The Terriers penalty kill was a perfect 7-for-7 in the series against the second-ranked power play in the nation.

- With the win, the Terriers broke the school record for consecutive home wins in the Hockey East tournament.

- Sophomore Charlie McAvoy assisted on all three BU goals.


- The Terriers will either face third-seeded Boston College or 10th-seeded New Hampshire in the Hockey East semifinals on Friday (March 17) at TD Garden.
