Her 117 tallies now stand alone at the top of the record ledger. In the same contest, Haley Skarupa (Rockville, Md.) dished out five helpers to reach the 200-point plateau in her career. In the victory, head coach Katie Crowley picked up her 200th career win behind the bench for Boston College ...

Victoria Bach (Milton, Ont.) scored two goals and assisted on a third in the win while senior forward Sarah Lefort (Ormstown, Que.) extended her point streak to nine games (9g, 10a) with two goals in the tilt ... Merrimack got the first twogoal game in program history in a 4-3 overtime setback to Providence.
