Minnesota 7, BU 3

Minnesota ends Boston University’s season

BU unable to halt late-season slide

ST. PAUL - There were seven walk-on players in Boston University’s lineup Saturday. Nine Terriers playing in the NCAA West Regional semifinals were freshmen or sophomores and only two were seniors.

Although BU advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2009 despite losing three key players during the season, a Terriers team lacking depth couldn’t survive giving Minnesota eight power-play opportunities. Wearing down as the game went along, BU lost, 7-3, to the Gophers and ended a season in which the Terriers generated as many headlines off the ice as on.
