The Eagles once had a guaranteed path to the NCAA Tournament. Now, after their seventh-straight winless game, they’re all but guaranteed to need to win the Hockey East Tournament.
In its last home game of the year, BC failed to snap out of its recent funk. Since the Beanpot, the Eagles are just 1-of-10 on the power play. Four of those missed opportunities came in Thursday night’s 4-1 loss to UMass-Lowell.
With its season hanging on the brink, BC had no answers for Massachusetts Lowell’s penalty kill in a complete third-period breakdown.
BC is about to enter into a new era of athletics, providing the perfect opportunity to update its uniforms and introduce new style.
Despite taking two one-goal leads, BC failed to hold off Vermont for the second night in a row. Fueled by physical play and Brian Bowen, the Catamounts forced a 2-2 tie on Senior Night in Conte Forum.
For the first time since January 2008, Boston College tied for the second game in a row, putting its place in the hunt for a Hockey East regular-season title in a precarious position.
Despite owning a 3-1 lead in the third period, No. 11 BC couldn’t hang on for the win, ultimately tying Vermont, 3-3.
The Eagles jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, but they allowed two goals in the third period against Vermont, ultimately settling for one point in a 3-3 tie.
For the better portion of three periods, BC contained Northeastern’s sixth ranked offense in Monday night’s Beanpot consolation game. But two Husky goals in the final 43 seconds spelled doom for the Eagles.
With victory ripped out of their hands in the game’s final seconds, the Eagles will walk away empty-handed from Beanpot for the first time since Jerry York became the head coach.
