Men’s Hockey: Wolverines Thrash Terriers 4-0

By: Jake Reiser

For the first time since 2013, the No. 4 Boston University Terriers traveled to Ann Arbor, Mich. to take on the University of Michigan Wolverines. After a quick start for the Maize and Blue, the Terriers could never seem to find a footing and lost 4-0

The Wolverines came out firing fast, and after killing a penalty to Cutler Martin, scored two goals in a span of just 37 seconds. First, on a power play thanks to a John MacLeod hook, Will Lockwood wristed one past Terrier netminder Jake Oettinger from the far left wing. Then, on a Kieffer Bellows slash, Tony Calderone one-timed a Dexter Dancs feed at the right point to make it 2-0 Michigan.

With 13:43 left in the game, Lockwood carried the puck to the front of the net and freshman Jake Slaker cleaned up the garbage on his backhand, making the Wolverine lead 3-0.

Coach David Quinn pulled Oettinger for the empty net and an extra attacker with 5:15 to go, but Tony Calderone bulged the twine from a failed BU dump in at the blue line. Boston University ended the game with the shots on goal advantage, 30-21.

The Terriers will look to even the weekend series at 5p.m. from Yost Arena in Ann Arbor, Mich.
