After struggling all year long on special teams, the Eagles exploded for four power-play goals against Vermont to keep their season alive.
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.
Vermont goaltender Packy Munson did a great job quelling BC’s attack, but the Eagles simply had too much talent for the Catamounts to handle.
The Eagles are looking to avoid deja vu all over again after falling 4-2 in the second game of their best-of-three quarterfinal series with Vermont.
Behind three different goalscorers and Thatcher Demko’s 10th shutouts, BC took the first game of its best-of-three slate with the Vermont Catamounts.
The Eagles take a two-game trip up to Burlington, Vt. to meet the team that knocked them out of the Hockey East Playoffs last year.
