In the second of a three-game women's hockey exhibition series against NCAA teams from the Boston area, the Boston Blades were hoping to extend their winning streak.

After a convincing win against the Northeastern Huskies, the Blades faced Isabel Menard and the Boston University Terriers. Kerrin Sperry did not stand between the pipes against the Blades; Alissa Fromkin stepped in instead.

After one period of play, the Blades enjoyed a 4-0 lead. Kelli Stack scored the first two goals of the game. Karen Thatcher, who registered a hat trick versus Northeastern, logged the third goal of the game. Hilary Knight would find herself on the score sheet, as she assisted on Gigi Marvin’s goal to close out the first period.

Louise Warren logged the first goal of the second period to cut the Blades lead to 4-1. Penalties would play a big part in the Terriers comeback as Jenelle Kohanchuk scored on the power play. Blades players called for penalties included Whitney Naslund (hooking), Katka Mrazova (roughing) and Kelley Steadman (tripping).

In the final stanza, the Blades found their lead dissolving. Shannon Doyle scored to give a rejuvenated Boston University squad some hope.

Kelli Stack would be called for a penalty with less than two minutes left in the third. Marie-Philip Poulin (who played against Stack at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games) scored the fourth goal for the Terriers at the 19:28 mark of the third.
