BU Blanks BC, 5-0
It was shocking, it was ugly, it was depressing.
Unless you're a Boston University fan, that is - then Sunday's 5-0 road win by the No. 16 Terriers at No. 2 Boston College probably made your weekend.
It was the first time BU has shut out BC in over 28 years, in an arena that no longer exists, back when both schools were members of the ECAC.
Wade Megan scored two goals for the visitors (4-4-1 overall, 3-3-1 Hockey East), including a power play tally and a shorthanded marker. Three other Terriers also posted two points apiece, while Kieran Millan made 21 saves for the shutout.
The Eagles (9-3-0, 7-2-0 HEA), who went scoreless in eight power plays, now have 19 days to get their act together before their home-and-home with the Terriers on Dec. 2-3. After today, there should certainly be no lack of incentive.
