Sam Kurker Scores Game Winner; Leads BU Over Top-Ranked UNH
Former VJW standout Sam Kurker played a key role in Boston University's 3-2 victory over No. 1-ranked New Hampshire on Thursday evening at
Whittemore Center. It marked the Terriers' second win in seven days against UNH.
With a 2-0 lead in the second period, Kurker provided what would be the game-winner. Freshman Ahti Oksanen took a pass from classmate Wesley Myron
and fired a shot that went over the net and off the glass. The puck
went high in the air and landed in the slot, where Kurker was to stuff a
shot through traffic and between the netminder's legs to give the Terriers a
3-0 lead. They would hold off a late charge to secure the victory.
Kurker is joined on the Boston University roster by another VJW alumni - Matt Rosen.
