BOSTON, Mass. - Senior Victoria Hanson made a career-high 41 saves and junior Nina Rodgers collected a career-high three points to lead the Boston University women's ice hockey team to a 4-1 win over Princeton on Friday night at Walter Brown Arena.
Final Score: Boston University 4, Princeton 1

With just 1:47 remaining in regulation and the score at 2-1, Rodgers redirected an shot from freshman Abby Cook to put the Terriers ahead by a pair of goals.
BU struck twice in the first 1:58 of the game to take a lead it never surrendered. Senior Maddie Elia started the scoring with her sixth goal of the season. After Rodgers won a battle along the boards, junior Rebecca Leslie gathered the puck in the neutral zone and skated into the Princeton zone before feeding Elia. The senior finished the play with a shot from the slot.
Senior Samantha Sutherland extended the lead to 2-0 and ended the night early for Princeton goaltender Alysia DaSilva (1 save). Sophomore Sammy Davis forced a turnover in the neutral zone and Sutherland skated into the Tiger end and beat DaSilva for her ninth goal of the season.
It became a 2-1 Terrier lead just 39 seconds into the middle stanza when Sylvie Wallin scored on a power play.
After Rodgers' goal as a BU power play expired made it 3-1, graduate student Mary Parker deposited the puck into an empty net for her 14th goal of the season.
Parker extended her point streak to eight games (8g, 5a), having scored a goal in each of the last seven games.
In addition to her career-high three points, Rodgers also matched her career high for assists with two, a mark she set on Tuesday at Harvard. She now has five points (1g, 4a) in the Terriers' last two games.
Hanson bested her career high in saves thanks to her 41-stop performance on Friday night. She previously stopped 40 shots in an NCAA quarterfinal contest at Wisconsin on March 14, 2015.
Sutherland also added an assist for a two-point night.
BU held Princeton to just 1-of-7 on the power play.
After DaSilva was pulled, Steph Neatby entered the game and stopped 24 shots.
BU and Princeton will conclude the weekend series on Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m.
