For the second game in a row, BU fell behind three nothing. Boston College scored three first Period goals to put the Terriers in a deep hole from the start.

Steven Whitney put the Eagles up 1-0 less then five minutes into the game. Paul Carey fond Whitney skating into the slot and hit him with a perfect pass. Whitney wasted no time a riffled one post Millan, off the post and in.

BC's second goal came on the power play. BU was caught up ice on a short handed rush. BC turned it up ice and had a 3 on 1 into the BU zone. The Eagle's Brain Gibbons scored a tap in goal after a couple of nice passes.

The Eagle's third tally also came on the power play. Brian Dumoulin, a member of the US WJC team, seemed to take a harmless wrist shot from the point. Millan never saw it through a screen and the puck found it's way into the back of the net.

After a terrible first period, BU rebounded nicely in the second scoring two goals of their own. Both goals were a result of the power play.  Just after BC got its man back BU's Alex Chiasson won a battle in the corner, then slipped a pass to Garret Noonan, who put it pass BC goalie John Muse from the top of the crease.

BU's second goal came on the power play. Chis Connolly took a slap shot from the point. It was deflected up in the air and gloved down by Charlie Coyle. Coyle gave it back to Connolly who fed David Warsofsky with a perfect one timer pass. Dave's bomb found it's way past Muse to make it a one goal game.

The third period saw both teams have their fair share of chances, all being denied by great goaltending. Milllan made some big stops to keep it a one goal game while Muse did the same.

Bu travels to NewHampshire tonight to face the Wildcats.
