After a divesting 5-4 overtime loss at UConn last night, BU used three goals from three different skaters to get back on the win train at Merrimack in front of 2,549 at Lawer Rink in North Andover.

Following an eventless first period that saw just 14 total shots, Dante Fabbro pumped home his fourth goal of the year at Lawler Rink to give the Terriers a 1-0 lead with 5:38 left in the second.
Less than three minutes later, Gabe Chabot potted his first of the season off a spectacular centering feed from David Farrance out of the near corner.
MC’s Simon Loof cut the BU lead in half just 2:22 into the third. It was his first collegiate goal.
Logan Cockerill continued his hot streak, netting the putaway goal midway through the third. Drew Melanson won a footrace into the far corner to negate an icing then found Brandon Hickey in the high slot. From there, Hickey dished to Cockerill, who fired a shot high over MC goalie Craig Pentane’s blocker for his sixth goal of the season.
Back in the first, BU showed a lot of poise killing off a Brandon Hickey five minute major for boarding. BU actually outshot MC 2-1 in the five-minute stretch.
BU is back in action to warp up the regular season with a pair of games against Vermont at Agganis.
