Boston College vs. Boston University score update: Terriers score twice for 2-1 lead after second period

After a scoreless first period, the host and No. 9-ranked Boston University Terriers came out flying in the second and finished the stanza with a 2-1 lead on the visiting and No. 1 Boston College Eagles on Friday at Agganis Arena as the goals came in a big bunch in the waning minutes.

The Terriers took 12 of the 20 shots on goal during the stanza to tie the count at 26-26.

With a goal from Norfolk, Mass. native and Terrier junior defenseman Garrett Noonan, the Terriers scored a goal for the 122nd straight game to set a new NCAA Division I record. Northeastern senior Chris Rawlings was the last goaltender to shut down the Terrier offense, doing so by a 1-0 score at Matthews Arena on Nov. 6, 2009.

BU took the lead on the visitors for the first time this season at the 9:04 mark of the middle stanza as Noonan was on the spot to the right of Parker Milner's goal for the rebound.

The Terriers doubled the lead at 16:04 as sophomore Evan Rodrigues took a nifty drop pass from rookie Danny O'Regan, a Needham, Mass. native, for the snipe over Milner's shoulder.

However, BC would not make things so easy for the hosts as they were sure to spoil Matt O'Connor's shutout bid at some point. Senior captain Pat Mullane banged in his seventh of the season with an emphatic "slam dunk" on the crease.
