GOAL DESCRIPTIONS

FIRST GOAL (1-0 - Boston College) - FIRST PERIOD - Graham McPhee - 14:08 - SHORT-HANDED
A penalty-filled first period yielded Boston College's first goal of the day down a man. The Eagles forecheck applied heavy pressure deep in UNH's zone and Christopher Grando made a nice play along the near boards to jostle the puck loose. Graham McPhee was flying in from the other direction and absorbed the puck with momentum. McPhee flew towards the net, deked to his backhand and roofed it past New Hampshire's Danny Tirone at 14:08 of the first period for a 1-0 BC lead.

SECOND GOAL (1-1 - New Hampshire) - FIRST PERIOD - Benton Maass - 18:27 - POWER PLAY
A late boarding call to Jacob Tortora at 17:57 yielded the Wildcats' first strike of the day on the power play at 18:27. Max Gildon ripped a shot at BC's Joseph Woll from the point and the puck careened into the corner where Michael McNicholas reestablished possession. Benton Maass slipped behind the play and McNicholas threaded the needle with a pass through the Eagles' zone for the successful one-timer blast from Maass to tie it up before the end of the first, 1-1.

THIRD GOAL (2-1 - Boston College) - SECOND PERIOD - David Cotton - 1:11 - POWER PLAY
New Hampshire's Anthony Wyse took a hooking call to close out the first and Boston College pounced out of the gate to start the second period. Michael Kim quarterbacked the play at the top of the left circle, passing down to Logan Hutsko on the near side along the goal line. David Cotton scooted in between the circles and popped Hutsko's quick pass to the back of the net to polish off the tic-tac-toe tally at 1:11 of the second period to reclaim the lead on the power play goal, 2-1.

FOURTH GOAL (3-1 - Boston College) - SECOND PERIOD - JD Dudek - 5:16 - EVEN STRENGTH
The Eagles doubled up their lead in transition at 5:16 of the second period. Grando executed another strong play in the neutral zone and gained UNH territory. Grando handed it off to Casey Carreau who skated it down to the far corner and separated the defense from the play. JD Dudek back pedaled to the left dot and buried Carreau's one-timer through the zone to make it a 3-1 affair.

FIFTH GOAL (4-1 - Boston College) - SECOND PERIOD - Graham McPhee - 14:24 - EVEN STRENGTH
Boston College pushed ahead by three after McPhee potted his second of the day at 14:24 of the second period. Christopher Brown chased down a puck behind the net and found off a Wildcat defender and tossed the disc to the front of the net. Ron Greco was there and tried to get a shot off but was in too tight on Tirone but his carom pinballed right to McPhee streaking in from between the circle. McPhee gathered the puck, shifted to his left and snapped it past Tirone to make it a 4-1 contest.

SIXTH GOAL (4-2 - New Hampshire) - SECOND PERIOD - Ara Narazian - 17:13 - EVEN STRENGTH
The Wildcats got one back with 2:47 to play in the second period off of a faceoff play. McNicholas won a draw back to Anthony Wise just within the blue line. Wyse rifled the puck off of Marcus Vela in the slot and Vela was able to redirect out to Ara Nazarian before Woll could get back to the near post. Nazarian calmly gathered it and beat Woll to his spot to make it a two-goal game at 17:13 of the second period.

SEVENTH GOAL (5-2 - New Hampshire) - THIRD PERIOD - Jacob Tortora - 14:06 - EVEN STRENGTH
Boston College put the game out of reach after Jacob Tortora polished off a goal in transition around the six-minute mark. Dudek generated the scoring play by skating it out of BC's zone and connected with Grando on the Wildcats' blue line. Grando gained UNH's end, extended the play by skating it down to the far corner and whizzed it through UNH's circles to Tortora on the doorstep. Tirone was still guarding the right side of the net before he could readjust to Tortora's one-timer blast at 14:06 to make it a 5-2 count.
