CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - In one of the premier games so far this season in women's college hockey, No. 2 Boston College earned a 4-2 win over No. 5 Northeastern on Friday night at Kelley Rink. Tori Sullivan potted a pair of goals and added one assist to lead the Eagles, while Kaliya Johnson scored the eventual game-winning goal with 7:17 left to play after the teams traded goals in the first and third periods.
The teams played to a 1-1 draw after the first, with Kendall Coyne converting on the power-play to give Northeastern the initial edge. Sullivan quickly tied it up 1:08 later with her goal from Dana Trivigno and Kristyn Capizzano.
After a scoreless second period, the teams combined for four third-period goals, including tallies from BC's Meghan Grieves, Johnson and Sullivan, and the Huskies' Hayley Scamurra. After Grieves put BC ahead, Scamurra knotted the score just 17 seconds later. Johnson's goal re-staked the Eagles' lead less than 2:00 after that before Sullivan's empty-netter secured the win.
Katie Burt made 22 saves in goal for BC, while Northeastern's Brittany Bugalski made 27 stops.
With the win, BC remained unbeaten on the season at 15-0-0 and 9-0-0 in Hockey East play, while Northeastern dropped to 10-2-1 and 6-1-0 in conference action.

Head coach Katie Crowley
"I thought we played a good game. I don't think it was our best (game), but we were also in positions we haven't been in all year. I thought our players did a great job of when they scored, we scored. It's a fun game to be a part of and a fun game to have at this point in our season. And we're playing them again in a week so we'll be ready and we have to learn from mistakes that we made. We'll let our lines gel a little bit. Two of them got switched around a little bit so we'll see how they get back to knowing each other again."
