Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Senior forward Mary Restuccia was one of four Eagles to net two points in the fourth-ranked Boston College women's ice hockey team victory over New Hampshire, 4-2, on Tuesday night on Kelley Rink. The captain assisted two scoring plays, becoming the eighth player in BC history to ever record 100 points in a career.

Junior goalkeeper Corinne Boyles made 19 saves, preventing several close-range chances, to help improve Boston College to 15-6-1 (8-2-1 Hockey East) on the year. UNH net-minder Lindsey Milton stopped 39 shots, as the Wildcats fell to 6-13-3 (0-7-2 Hockey East).

After a scoreless first period, sophomore forward Taylor Wasylk gather a pass off the end boards from junior defenseman Blake Bolden, spun around in front of the right circle and fired a shot past Milton for the 1-0 lead at 15:20.

At 17:07, freshman center Alex Carpenter paired up with Restuccia and junior right-winger Ashley Motherwell to extend Boston College's lead by one, 2-0.

The second period ended in wild fashion, with each side scoring inside of one minute to play. New Hampshire's Kristina Lavoie gathered a loose puck in the right corner, sent a pass up to Kailey Chappell along the wall. The defender found forward Jenna Lascelle breaking towards open ice and the winger sounded the horn at 19:23 to get UNH on the scoreboard, 2-1.

Boston College responded 24 seconds later to provide some breathing room heading into intermission up 3-1. Wasylk ripped a shot from the right circle and Carpenter battered Milton with a put back, before freshman defenseman Emily Pfalzer came streaking through for a one-timer from just outside the crease.

The New Hampshire trio connected once again, as Lavoie was assisted by Chappell and Lascelle to move within one, 3-2, at 10:11 in the third.

A few minutes later, Restuccia picked up a pass from Pfalzer and found sophomore defenseman Meagan Mangene deep in the slot for the security goal, 4-2, at 14:36. The helper was the 63rd of the captain's career, fifth most all-time at BC, and moved the Chester Springs, Pa. native to 100 career points.

Boston College will travel to Vermont on Saturday, Jan. 14 for a 7 p.m. meeting with the Catamounts. The Eagles then return home for the final edition of the '11-'12 series with Northeastern on Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 7 p.m.
