BU-Vermont Postgame Thoughts

– Four is almost always enough for Vermont – the Catamounts had won 50 of their last 51 games when scoring four or more goals.

– BU has is now 20-1-3 since January 3, with its only loss coming to Maine in the second game of its three game Hockey East quarterfinal series. The Terriers are have not lost on the road since November 14th at UMass.

– Vermont freshman Drew MacKenzie went the whole season without scoring a goal, and got two tonight – unfortunately one was into his own net as he deflected Chris Higgins’ shot into the UVM net for the tying goal with 6:54 to play. He had given his team the lead four minutes before with a power play goal. “Obviously, scoring my first goal this season went from being a high point to letting one go in off my stick. I’m disappointed, but there’s nothing I can do about it now.”

“He’ll be able to put that away pretty quickly,” said Vermont coach Kevin Sneddon. “He’s a mentally tough young man, and he’shad such a great season for us.”

– Vermont has plenty to be proud of this season, making the Frozen Four for just the send time in school history. “Good seasons don’t always end in championships,” said Sneddon. “As I told them in the locker room, they’ll be able to look back at this moment in time for the rest of their lives as a very positive experience and one that they know full well they left it all on the ice.”

– BU is four for four in tournaments so far this season (five for five if you count the Northeast Regional). The Terriers won the Ice Breaker, Denver Cup, Beanpot and Hockey East titles.
