65 minutes of hockey was not enough to declare a winner between Northeastern and Boston University. The Huskies and Terriers skated to a 5-5 tie at Historic Matthew Arena on Thursday evening.
Grant Jozefek opened up scored 2:07 into the first period streaking past the BU defense on the right side and getting a goal past Max Prawdzik. Bobby Hampton would tack on another for the Huskies and chase Prawdzik from the game not even four minutes into the first period.
BU responded quickly, as Logan Cockerill scored his first on the year, a short-handed goal off a turnover on the NU powerplay. Three minutes into the second period, Patrick Curry tipped home a shot from Kasper Kotkansalo to knot the game at two goals apiece.
Pat Schule scored a goal off the crossbar that was initially waived off but ultimately reviewed and deemed a good goal at the next stoppage of play, almost three minutes later.
The Terriers immediately responded when Joel Farabee and Bobo Carpenter beat Cayden Primeau and the Husky defense early in the third period. In total, Northeastern allowed 50 shots on goal.
Jozefek got his second of the night when Northeastern found themselves on the positive end of a 5-3 power play. Davies worked the puck side to side along with Tyler Madden, and ultimately gave Jozefek the time and space he needed to sneak one past Oettinger.
Biagio Lerario poked a loose puck into the neutral zone where Schule sprinted ahead and worked past one final BU defender to slip a goal five-hole on Oettinger to give Northeastern a 5-4 lead.
Ultimately, it would be Chad Krys who would have the last laugh as he rifled a shot past Primeau on a late BU power play.
The Huskies and Terriers both exchanged shots in overtime but both teams were held off the scoreboard.
Both teams are back in action at Agganis Arena on Saturday night at 7pm. WRBB will have pre-game coverage starting at 6:45.
