BOSTON -- A strong road effort from the Northeastern Huskies continued through the second period as they scored twice more and took a 5-2 lead into the intermission at Agganis Arena. NU held a shots on goal advantage in the first period, but trailed 14-12 in the middle stanza.
After a slow start to the stanza, the Huskies tacked another to their score at the 8:03 mark as senior captain Vinny Saponari was the last to whack at a loose puck in front of BU rookie Sean Maguire for his fourth goal of the season. The goal ended a 5-on-3 Husky advantage and came in the same minute after junior Cody Ferriero rung the crossbar from between the circles.
Ferriero redeemed himself at 16:21 as he led a one-on-one rush up ice, beating Alexx Privitera on defense and stuffing it under Maguire's five-hole in goal for his eighth goal of the season.
