Three minutes into the middle frame, and the Huskies have mustered up just three shots to BU's 12.

On their fifth shot of the game, Matt Demelis solved Caron, with his second goal of the season. A huge tally for the Huskies. Demelis cleaned up a greasy rebound from a Gunnarwolfe Fontaine shot.

Hutson got caught pinching after he collided with Nick Zabaneh, a split second decision made all the difference.

No worries though, because the Terriers quickly regained their one goal lead. Devin Kaplan tried to feed Sam Stevens, but the pucked deflected past Whitehead. 2-1 Terriers.

This game is not for the faint of heart, as the Huskies answered back with their sixth shot of the game. Justin Hryckowian evened things up at two.

At the 13:51 mark of the second period, the game's first penalty was handed out. The Terrier's were unable to take advantage on the powerplay.

Hutson, with time winding down in the period, lost himself in front of the Huskies net. His 11th goal and 36th point of the period gave the Terriers some wiggle room going into the second intermission.

Third Period

The Huskies are like that pesky younger sibling who should be losing much worse. Despite being heavily outshot (23-8) through two periods, they have stayed right there with BU.

Dylan Peterson flew into the Huskies zone and got tripped by Hunter McDonald. He was slow to get up on the. For his troubles, he drew a penalty.

Gavin McCarthy took an ill-advised penalty with 11:24 to go in the frame. BU's first penalty of the game was questioned by Terriers Head Coach Jay PandolfoIt. But it stands.

Again, NU just sticks around and with 13 shots to BU's 27, they are down just one goal. And wouldn't you know it, Jack Williams ties the game for the Huskies on the powerplay.

It's not quite at the point where the game needs a hero. But with 5:20 to go in the game, it feels like something big is going to end the game before extra time is needed.

With 22 seconds to go in the game, the games remains tied at three. And it stays that way, after a back-and-forth scoring affair.

Sudden Death, Gut-Check, Overtime

The next goal wins, and you bet that the Terriers' dynamic duo are on the ice. Five minutes of 3-on-3, then it goes to shootout.

Hutson almost singlehandedly willed the Terriers to a 4-3 win. What a talent this guy is going to become for the Habs.

The Huskies bit a chunk out of the Terriers, on a game-deciding tally from Fontaine, his seventh goal of the season.
