Beanpot 2011: BU Takes 1-0 Lead Over Harvard Into First Intermission

Boston University quickly took advantage of a Harvard penalty just a few minutes into the first period to take a 1-0 lead. After Harvard’s Alex Killorn went to the penalty box after a hit from behind, BU’s sophomore forward and leading scorer Alex Chiasson notched a goal at the 5:42 mark of the 1st. Chiasson had help from linemates Matt Nieto and Corey Trivino.

The remainder of the first period saw the two teams combine for six penalties. BU gave Harvard quite a few chances with three penalties, but the Crimson were befallen by sloppy passes and a lack of focus.

With just a second left in the period, Harvard junior Daniel Moriarty leveled a nasty hit to the neck of a BU player to earn himself a game misconduct and hit from behind call. BU will start the second period with almost five minutes of power play time.

Harvard started senior goaltender Ryan Carroll, who has made 10 saves on 11 shots so far. BU junior goaltender Kieran Millan has made 10 saves.
