BOSTON - Senior Dana Trivigno notched her second-career hat trick and earned tournament MVP honors to lead the No. 1 Boston College women's hockey team to a decisive 7-0 win over sixth-ranked Northeastern en route to its sixth Beanpot title in school history.
Makenna Newkirk and Megan Keller each added three points (one goal, two assists apiece) and Katie Burt recorded her school-record 11th shutout this season to back the Eagles to the victory.
The Eagles took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission, but the teams were held scoreless in the second period. In the third period, BC exploded for five goals - for the second time in two Beanpot games - to put an exclamation point on the tournament title.
This is BC's second Beanpot title in the last three years. It's also the third time in women's Beanpot history that a team posted shutouts in both rounds on their way to the title.

Boston College head coach Katie Crowley
"I was happy with how our team played. (Northeastern is) a good team over there. They have some great offense and put us in some positions defensively that we hadn't been in in a little while. So it was nice to see our D-zone do a good job. Overall, I thought it was a great game."
"We're able to play all six defenseman back there, and Katie (Burt) was unbelievable in these two Beanpot games. Our defense does get overlooked at times because we have a powerful offense. But all six defensemen were great and Katie made the saves we needed her to make. I thought she was phenomenal."
"We still want to keep that No. 1 seed in Hockey East so Friday (against Northeastern) is going to be a big one for us. I think we can clinch that night, or come close ... if we win that game. That's a big focus for us and another step in the ladder for us. We'll enjoy this one tonight and then get back at it and be ready to go on Friday."
Boston College senior forward Dana Trivigno
"I have to put a lot of the credit on my line mates, Andie Anastos and Makenna Newkirk. They worked really hard to either get me the puck or get shots to the net and create rebounds for me. Without them, I definitely wouldn't have gotten the goals I had. It's hard work as a line, getting the puck in, forechecking hard, moving the puck around and getting to the net. Good things happen."
On what Crowley told the team in the second intermission
"'Let's go win a Beanpot.' You don't really have to say much more than that."
"The boys' team is pretty supportive. They were all rooting for us. I got a couple of texts, some tweets sent out to the team and players specifically. They've always been supportive and love to see us win. And we're the same, as well. We go to their games as much as we can and last night, we were all cheering in that overtime game."
Boston College sophomore goaltender Katie Burt
"(The goaltending award is) definitely an honor. There are four great goalies in the tournament. But I definitely wouldn't be where I am without my defense. It does get often overlooked, our six D. I wouldn't be where I am without them. They're the ones who are cleaning the second-chance opportunities and allowing me to see the puck. They're clearing the bodies out in front, so I owe a lot to them."
HOW IT HAPPENED
1st, 2:54 // 1-0 - BC GOAL (PPG): On the man-advantage, the Eagles worked the puck around the outside as Megan Keller found Makenna Newkirk at the halfboards. With Haley Skarupa in the slot, Husky goaltender Brittany Bugalski made the stop on Newkirk's angled shot, but the rebound fell to Skarupa who beat her high from in close for the 1-0 lead just :18 seconds into the power-play.

3rd, 12:11 // 6-0 - BC GOAL: Kristyn Capizzano broke into the zone, crossed through the center and curled around the back of the net.
