Friday reading: UNH loss, Northeastern, WCHA predictions

NBA/No. 7 BU 3, No. 1 New Hampshire 2

DURHAM, N.H. — Boston University gave New Hampshire only its second loss of the season and first on its home ice, jumping out to a 3-0 lead and then holding on for a 3-2 win.

It marked the second time in the Terriers’ last three games that they’ve toppled a No. 1 team in the country, having split a home-and-home series last weekend with then top-ranked Boston College.

The win keeps third-place BU within striking distance of the two top-ranked teams, four points behind BC and three behind UNH. The Terriers, however, have completed their season series with both teams, winning one of three.

“This UNH team is really a good team so for us to come up here and get a ‘W’ is terrific for us,” BU coach Jack Parker said. “It’s obviously great for the points, but it’s really good for our confidence because this is a really solid team.”
