After struggling all year long on special teams, the Eagles exploded for four power-play goals against Vermont to keep their season alive.
Austin Cangelosi scored the fastest goal in Hockey East playoff history en route to the Eagles’ 7-0 blowout over Vermont.
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.
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 scored their first goal of the day while on the power kill, and went on to dominate their way to a 7-1 victory over Vermont.
After notching a pair of wins against the Catamounts over the weekend, goaltender Katie Burt became the all-time wins leader for the Eagles.
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.
It wasn’t their prettiest game, but the Eagles had just enough grit to take down Vermont and earn a spot in the Hockey East Semifinals.
