The top-seeded Boston University squad earned a trip to the NCAA Northeast Regional Final with a spirited overtime win against Yale on Friday. San Jose Sharks prospect and right winger Danny O’Regan provided the heroics when he buried a rebound on a shot from the point by top draft prospect Jack Eichel just 7:27 into overtime.
Despite being outshot 42-23, Yale gave BU a run for their money, taking a 1-0 lead in the second period on a power play goal by Nate Repensky. Third period goals by Ahti Oskanen and Evan Rodrigues gave BU their first lead of the game. Frankie DiChiara scored the tying goal for Yale to send the game into overtime. BU now moves on to face Minnesota-Duluth in the NCAA Northeast Regional Final on Saturday.
