Roberto makes presence felt in tie against Notre Dame

Amid all of the dekes, dangles and one-timers that have led to goals this season for the No. 2/3 Boston University men’s hockey team, sophomore forward Nick Roberto’s second-period strike Friday against the University of Notre Dame served as a rather pedestrian outlier.
