Game Recap

No. 14 BU Squeaks By Warriors, 2-1

Thursday, January 24, 2005

Boston, Mass. - Rookie forward Ryan Monaghan (Wilmette, Ill.) scored a goal and added an assist to lead 14th-ranked Boston University to a 2-1 win over Merrimack in a Hockey East game on Thursday night in Agganis Arena.

The Terriers improved to 14-10-1, 10-4-1 Hockey East, while Merrimack suffered its seventh consecutive loss, falling to 8-19-2, 1-15-1.

Monaghan opened the scoring with his fourth goal of the season just over six minutes into the game. Sophomore linemate Eric Thomassian (Rye, N.Y.) blocked a Merrimack clearing attempt at the blue line to create a two-on-one advantage, then passed the puck to the left side, where Monaghan beat Merrimack sophomore goaltender Jim Healey (Holyrood, N.F.) with a backhand shot to the top left corner.

Monaghan set up the eventual game-winner less than five minutes later, passing to senior defenseman Bryan Miller (Wayne, N.J.), who took a shot from the point. Warrior sophomore defenseman Ryan Sullivan (Toronto, Ont.) blocked the shot, but Matt Radoslovich (Wanaque, N.J.) picked up the loose puck and fired a quick wrist shot into the net at the 10:46 mark to give BU a 2-0 advantage.

Merrimack sophomore Justin Mills (Edgerton, Alta.) cut the lead to one less than two minutes into the second period, taking a feed from rookie linemate Mike Fournier (Anchorage, Alaska) in the slot before beating Terrier sophomore goaltender John Curry (Shorewood, Minn.) top shelf for his fourth goal of the season.

While Mills' goal ended the scoring in the game, there was still plenty left to write on the score sheet, as the two teams were assessed a combined 105 penalty minutes with 2:36 to play in the second period.

Merrimack senior forward Jeremy Wilson (Shrewsbury, Mass.) collided with Curry behind the BU net while chasing a loose puck. All the skaters on the ice scuffled with each other, and four players from each team were assessed 10-minute misconduct penalties. Wilson was given two five-minute major penalties and a game misconduct, and in the end, Merrimack was assessed an extra major penalty.

Merrimack held the Terriers scoreless on five power play opportunities, including the five-minute major, and the Warriors held an 8-7 shot advantage in the third period, but BU junior goaltender Stephan Siwiec (Calgary, Alta.), who relieved Curry at the beginning of the third period as a result of a shoulder injury suffered during the melee, stopped all eight shots to hold the Terrier lead.

Healey made 23 saves for Merrimack, while Curry stopped 10 shots to earn his 12th win of the season.

Merrimack returns to J. Thom Lawler Arena next weekend, hosting UMass at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 5.
