  • 17:12 3rd: Crazy goal here for BU. Krys pass put on goal by Patrick Curry and Woll stops it but Ryan Cloonan digging away and the puck crosses the goal line. Play under review.

  • :20 2nd: BC applying pressure on Oettinger at the end of the period but he makes 4 or 5 saves from in tight, and makes them look routine.

  • 6:25 2nd: Jesper Mattila walks right around Patrick Curry and to the net, but Oettinger there to find his shot through traffic.


  • 8:54 2nd: Keller extends his point streak to 15 games with a shorthanded, breakaway goal. McAvoy feeds him and he goes to the net and beats Woll with a backhand for his fourth shortie of the year. 3-1 BU.


  • 9:24 2nd: Huge net-front scrum and BC will come away with a power play. JFK to the box for the second time tonight, this time an interference call.


  • 9:40 2nd: BC starting to pick up the pace now, they’ve had the last six shots to make it 14-10 BU in that department, but still 2-1 BU on the scoreboard.


  • 13:01 2nd: Austin Cangelosi cuts into the lead. Ryan Fitzgerald’s initial shot is stopped, and Matthew Gaudreau, from his back, slides it over to Cangelosi for the easy goal. 2-1 BU, goal confirmed after review for possible offsides.

  • 4:00 1st: And then just :16 into the BU PP, JFK takes a holding the stick penalty of his own. Back to 4-on-4 then 1:20 of BC power play.


  • 5:20 1st: And just over a minute into it, Ryan Fitzgerald holds Clayton Keller’s stick to negate the power play. 4-on-4 for :56, then 1:04 of BU PP.


  • 6:25 1st: First penalty of the game goes to Jordan Greenway for interference. BC still without a shot on the board but they’ll have a man-advantage.


  • 9:26 1st: BU with a 9-0 shot advantage over halfway through the opening period. They’ve had a lot of good looks and have one past Woll so far.


  • 11:24 1st: Jake Oettinger with a scary play on the puck as it rides up his stick and just past the post. Same net as the Matt O’Connor incident too.


  • 13:23 1st: More good work from BU behind the net, this time it’s Jordan Greenway setting up Keller on the doorstep but Woll got a glove on his backhander. Terriers still lead it 1-0.


  • 15:31 1st: Patrick Harper with a great individual effort, skating down left wing, behind net and feeding JFK at the net mouth for his 11th goal of the year. BU leads 1-0.


  • 17:10 1st: Student sections already going back-and-forth with the “We can’t hear you” chants. No score.


  • 19:20 1st: Slick feed from Clayton Keller out front to Patrick Harper, but he had his shot turned away by Joseph Woll.


  • Both teams in throwback jerseys tonight. BU in red, BC in gold.


  • Just under ten minutes from puck drop at TD Garden in the second semifinal. BU swept the Hockey East series in January, and the Terriers will be looking for their first three game sweep of BC since 1994-95 season.
