The Notre Dame Fighting Irish finished their series against the Boston University Terriers Saturday. The Irish stayed steady on the penalty kill, but BU took control early on. This followed Notre Dame’s 4-1 victory against the Terriers Friday.
Game Summary: BU 8 - Notre Dame 2
The Terriers got after it in a feisty first period. After killing off an early hooking penalty on Trevor Janicke, the Irish saw the Terriers set the tone. Boston University’s Quinn Hutson notched the first goal of the night not even five minutes in. Macklin Celebrini doubled the Terriers’ score not even a minute later. Notre Dame’s Ryan Siedem responded quickly with the first Irish goal of the night and his first of the season, but goals from BU’s Dylan Peterson, Luke Tuch and Shane Lachance followed to bring it to 5-1 Terriers before the period even reached its halfway point.
The Terriers went rapid fire on the Notre Dame goal on the power play following an interference penalty on Notre Dame’s Jake Boltmann. With both squads amped up, a roughing penalty for each team followed, but neither the Irish or the Terriers capitalized on the power play. By the end of the first, the Terriers peppered the Irish net with 22 shots to show up Notre Dame’s 6.
Lachance led the next period off with his second goal of the night. A goal from Aiden Celebrini and one from Macklin Celebrini soon followed to continue the Terriers’ momentum. On-ice tiffs came soon after as the clock ran down and the two teams headed into the third 8-11, BU.
Following a slashing penalty on Boston University’s Ryan Greene, Notre Dame’s Tyler Carpenter scored his team’s second and last goal of the night on the power play. This time around, the Irish outshot the Terriers 17-11, but it wasn’t enough for a recovery and the Terriers locked in the 8-2 win.
