BC started the second period with a 5-on-3 power play and with BU on the verge of killing off both penalties, Steven Whitney scored 61 seconds into the period - and with 15 seconds left on the power play - to knot the game, 1-1. Carl Sneep fired a shot from the right point that beat Kieran Millan to the far side at 12:33 and BC had the lead. BC capped its domination in the period with a spectacular Chris Kreider goal at 15:48. He took a pass from Jimmy Hayes in the neutral zone and rushed up the left wing. He put a Gretzky-like move on Terriers blue liner Max Nicasatro and slipped the puck past a helpless - and stunned - Millan for a 3-1 Eagles' lead. Eagles are 14-1-1 this season when leading after two. BU is just 1-7-2 this year when trailing after two.
