BC Does It Again

For the fourth time in five games, third-ranked Boston College did not allow the opposition to light the red lamp.  The Eagles, powered by a six-goal second stanza, overwhelmed UMass, 7-0, on Tuesday night in BC's 2015-16 Hockey East opener at Conte Forum.

Teddy Doherty scored two power-play goals for the Eagles (6-1-0 overall, 1-0-0 Hockey East), who got the game-winning score from Adam Gilmour just 1:33 into a then-scoreless second period. Chris Brown, Matthew Gaudreau and Colin White each set up two goals, while Thatcher Demko turned aside all 26 shots he faced for his fourth shutout this season and seventh of his collegiate career.

Nic Renyard took the loss for the visiting Minutemen (4-2-1, 0-1-1), stopping 21 of 26 shots before giving way to Alex Wakaluk in the middle period.

BC will now host Maine for pair of Hockey East games this weekend, on Friday and Sunday, while UMass will play a Hockey East home-and-home with UConn.
