Max Nicastro and Sahir Gill also scored to put the Terriers up 3-0 at the end of the first. Providence outshot BU, 11-8, in the period as well as 26-24 in the game.
At the start of the second period, the Friars had a 5-on-3 power-play opportunity, but could not capitalize. The Terriers, however, scored two power-play goals and an even strength goal to make the score at 6-0. In the third period, BU added two more power-play goals, to make the final score, 8-0. The Terriers finished the night 6-for-9 on the power play while the Friars went 0-for-4. Wade Megan led the way for BU with two goals and two assists, while Nieto had one goal and three assists.
