THIS DATE IN TERRIER HOCKEY:
Jan. 21, 1989: Boston University shutout second ranked Minnesota, 1-0, in front of 2,853 fans at Walter Brown Arena. It was the first time the Gophers had been shutout since 14 March 1986, a span of 80 games. It was a defensive game from start to finish, with great forechecking and backchecking by both teams.
BU goalie Peter Fish made 17 saves to get the shutout, outplaying Robb Stauber, who was making his first start in seven weeks. The only goal of the game came at 10:45 of the second period when Chris Lappin scored the first goal of his Terrier career. Stauber made saves on shots by Shawn McEachern (photo) and Mike Sullivan before Lappin, who moved in when he saw a delayed penalty was being called on Minnesota, picked up the second rebound from just outside the crease and put it in the net.
