BC Blanks CC for Third Straight Shutout

Boston College is on a roll. Really.

The fourth-ranked Eagles have shut out three straight opponents, including this weekend's two-step sweep at Colorado College, and have allowed just two goals the entire regular season in getting off to a 4-1-0 start.

Freshman forward Jeremy Bracco set up three goals, two of them by Ryan Fitzgerald, in Friday's 3-0 win at CC. The Eagles followed up the next night with a 5-0 triumph in Colorado Springs as Adam Gilmour scored twice and Scott Savage and Zach Sanford posted two assists apiece.

Junior goaltender Thatcher Demko stopped all 45 shots he faced on the weekend against the host Tigers. He has also registered all four BC wins on the year, all by shutout, including earlier whitewashings of Army and Wisconsin. BC and Demko have now not allowed a goal in 196:58, or since the three-minute mark of the third period in a 2-1 loss at Rensselaer on Oct. 11.

The Eagles get back to work on Friday night at home at Kelley Rink against No. 6 Denver to begin a five-game homestand. BC will then open the 2015-16 Hockey East campaign at home on Nov. 3 against UMass.
