Dartmouth unable to find scoring touch, falls to Boston University

BOSTON, MA – The Dartmouth men's hockey team had its chances in the final minutes, but a late goal and another into the empty net gave Boston University a 4-1 win Friday night at Agganis Arena.
 
"There are parts to the season where pucks seem to go in and there are parts where pucks don't," Koenig Family Head Coach Bob Gaudet '81 said. "We're in the middle of the part of the season where they aren't going in for us. We'll figure it out soon, but this coming break will help with that."
 
The lone goal for the Big Green (4-6-1) came off the stick of team captain Kevan Kilistoff at 10:06 of the middle period, tying the game at 1-1. But the Terriers (6-8-2) answered back just 64 seconds later thanks to Patrick Harper to regain the lead they would never relinquish.
 
Cam Crotty scored the only goal of the opening frame, finding the back of the net 4:52 in. Ty Amonte and Joel Farabee added tallies in the third to seal the win, BU's first against Dartmouth since Dec. 30, 2006 and snapping a three-game skid in the process.
 
Netminder Jake Oettinger was stellar in goal for the home team, stopping 33 shots as the Green and White seemingly controlled the play and set the tempo all night. However, despite strong play once again, Dartmouth was unable to turn that into a victory.
 
Junior Adrian Clark made 18 saves in the loss.
 
Cam Strong and Daniel Warpecha picked up the helpers on Kilistoff's first of the season.
 
The team will now head home for two weeks on their winter break before returning to campus to host the 30th Annual Ledyard Classic on Dec. 29-30. The Big Green will play Army West Point and Providence with Brown alternating opponents over the two days.
