BOSTON, Mass. - The Boston University men's ice hockey team used a pair of power-play goals to earn a 3-1 home victory over New Hampshire on Friday evening at Agganis Arena.
It was a come-from-behind win for the Terriers as UNH struck first at 5:02 of the opening period. Junior Wilmer Skoog tied it up when he redirected in the puck at the goalmouth on a power play with 1:29 left in the first.
The game-winner also came on a man advantage - this time on a major power play - as senior captain Logan Cockerill converted at the foot of the left circle off a pass by sophomore Dylan Peterson at 13:17 of the second.
BU had chances to build on its lead and had two goals overturned due to video replay before adding an empty-netter from grad student Max Kaufman with 27.8 ticks left.
Sophomore Drew Commesso made 29 saves to earn the win in goal as BU outshot UNH, 34-30.
BU moves to 5-9-2 on the year and 4-5-2 in Hockey East play. The Wildcats fall to 7-8-1 with a 3-6-1 conference mark.
The two teams will wrap up their weekend home-and-home series on Saturday (Dec. 4) in Durham. Game time at Whittemore Center is set for 7 p.m.
