After struggling all year long on special teams, the Eagles exploded for four power-play goals against Vermont to keep their season alive.
The Eagles had six different goal scorers on the day against the Saints to punch a ticket to St. Charles, Mo. for the 2017 Frozen Four.
Austin Cangelosi scored the fastest goal in Hockey East playoff history en route to the Eagles’ 7-0 blowout over Vermont.
For the second straight night, Andie Anastos piloted an overtime victory. This time, the senior captain gathered a loose puck and flung a shot past Brittany Bulgalksi, lifting the Eagles over Northeastern and atop the Hockey East.
Two minutes into double overtime, Andie Anastos rebounded Kenzie Kent’s shot and found the back of the net, propelling BC to a 4-3 win over Vermont and sending it to Sunday’s Hockey East final.
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.
Megan Keller scored the game-winning goal and Katie Burt registered a shutout in the Eagles’ win over the Warriors on Friday.
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.
The Eagles dominated the Warriors in a 4-0 victory at home on Thursday afternoon to take game one of the best-of-three series.
