Beanpot 2011: Harvard, Boston University Have High Scoring Second Period, Tied 3-3

Scoring goals in bunches in the second period, Boston University and Harvard University find themselves heading into the third period all tied up at 3 a piece.

Harvard tied things up just over 4 minutes into the second period with a goal by junior forward Alex Killorn. Caught off guard, BU held back and let Harvard's junior defenseman Ryan Grimshaw slap one through goalie Kieran Millan just 50 seconds later to take the lead. Then with seemingly no one playing defense for the Terriers, Killorn scored again for the Crimson just 19 seconds after the second goal to give the Crimson a 3-1 lead.

The Terriers took a timeout to regroup, and the tactic seemed to work. Freshman defenseman and season-long surprise Garrett Noonan soon brought the Terriers wihin one with a power play goal on the left side of Harvard goaltender Ryan Carroll. Just about 40 seconds later, freshmen defenseman Adam Clendening tied the game up with help from Noonan.

The remainder of the period saw Harvard take control of the puck and have several prime chances, but the Terriers were able to fend them off. Millan made 7 saves on the frame, with Carroll saving 16.
