Boston College took a 1-0 lead at five minutes of the first period as JD Dudek scored his 11th goal of the season. The play started with Graham McPhee playing a pass to Colin White who sent it to Dudek. He went hard to the goal and crammed it past Tirone.

The Eagles gained a 2-0 advantage with a goal by White for his second point of the night. Connor Moore played the puck out of the BC zone to Dudek in the neutral zone. He then sent the puck to White who circled around the UNH goal and found the back of the net.

The Wildcats got on the board with 37 seconds left in the first period with a power play goal by Patrick Grasso. Michael McNicholas gained control of the puck along the boards to the left of BC netminder Joseph Woll. He played a pass behind the red line to Tyler Kelleher who then found the tape of Grasso's stick with a pass. Grasso sent the one-time shot into the net for his team leading 17th goal of the season.

UNH tied the game 2:42 into the second period with a goal by Ara Nazarian, his third of the season. Cameron Marks played the puck to Chris Miller in the neutral zone and skated in with it to the left of Woll. Miller ripped a shot that Woll saved, but Nazarian one-timed the puck into the net to light the lamp.

Ryan Fitzgerald put the Eagles up 3-2 at 3:46 of the second period with his seventh goal of the season. Matthew Gaudreau gained control of the puck in the UNH zone and fed it to Fitzgerald in front of the crease. He lifted his shot to the top corner of the net.

The Eagles gained a 4-2 lead at 17:02 of the second period on a goal by Scott Savage. He got the puck just inside the blueline and fired a wrist shot that went through traffic and into the net. Thirty-four seconds into the third period, BC went up by three goals on a shot from the point by Luke McInnis.

Kelleher brought UNH to within two goals at 12:13 of the third period with his 16th goal of the season to bring the score to 5-3. The goal came while the Wildcats were on a power play. Grasso orchestrated the play with a pass to McNicholas behind the net. McNicholas dished the puck to Kelleher who ripped a shot into the net.

Jason Salvaggio cut the deficit to one when he scored his 16th goal of the year. Marks found the puck along the boards and dished it to Salvaggio at the top of the slot. He fired a shot to the top corner of the net for his goal.

BC notched its sixth goal of the game while shorthanded and in an empty net situation with 47 seconds left in the third period on a goal by Cangelosi.
