Ahti Oksanen scored a pair of goals in the final two minutes for the Terriers (11-3-4) with BU’s goal empty. The game tying goal came with 2.2 seconds left in regulation to force the overtime.
Boston University outshot the Badgers 6-0 in overtime.
The Badgers (2-11-2) took the lead with 3:45 left in the second period on a Jedd Soleway goal. The Badgers went up 3-1 when Terriers goalie Matt O’Connor’s pass went off his own man and into the net with 2:41 to play.
The two teams close out the two-game series at the Kohl Center tonight.
