Junior defenseman Brian Dumoulin picked up two assists for the Eagles

BOSTON, Mass. - The No. 13 Boston University men's ice hockey team fell short in an attempt to sweep its Hockey East season series from archrival Boston College, as the Terriers fell to the No. 2/3 Eagles, 6-1, on Saturday evening at Agganis Arena.

BU had its five-game win streak snapped and fell to 8-5-1 overall and 6-4-1 in league play. BC improves to 11-5-0 on the year with an 8-3-0 conference mark.

A late first-period goal by senior Corey Trivino created a 1-1 deadlock heading into the first intermission, but the visiting Eagles reeled off five straight tallies, including four in the middle stanza, to earn the win.

Making only his second collegiate start, freshman Brian Billett recorded 40 saves for the Eagles, which got goals from six different players. Freshman Johnny Gaudreau recorded a goal and an assist while junior Brian Dumoulin and freshman Quinn Smith each earned two assists.

Senior Kieran Millan made 17 saves and allowed five goals in two periods of work before classmate Grant Rollheiser took over for the third and stopped eight of the nine shots he faced.

Trivino scored his team-leading 10th goal of the season and has now found the back of the net in seven of his last eight games.

All seven of the game's markers came at even strength with two of BC's occurring on 4-on-4 situations.

BC will host Providence on Tuesday (Dec. 6), while BU will return to action on Thursday (Dec. 8) when it visits New Hampshire.
