CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The top-ranked Boston College women's hockey team claimed a 7-1 win over Providence on Friday evening at Kelley Rink as the Eagles celebrated the senior class - the most successful class in both BC and Hockey East history - in a ceremony prior to the game.
Four of the team's six seniors recorded points in the win, led by Dana Trivigno's four points (two goals, two assists). Alex Carpenter and Haley Skarupa each added three points (one goal, two assists apiece) while Lexi Bender picked up an assist.
Sophomore defenseman Megan Keller added a career-best three assists from the blue line while Toni Ann Miano potted two goals.
The win moved the Eagles to 33-0-0 on the season and 23-0-0 in Hockey East. With one game left in the regular-season tomorrow, BC has the chance to become the first team in conference history - men or women - to complete the league slate with a perfect record.

Boston College head coach Katie Crowley
"I liked the way our kids stuck to the game plan and played with a little bit of grit and a little bit of heart, moving pucks well and stuck to the way we play hockey. I thought that second period was a pretty good one for us."
"We're hoping (the seniors) have the composure they should have being here for four years, and to relay that to the younger players. They've done that so far this year. We've got a great leadership group... They've been tremendous to our program and I think it's great for the younger players to look up to them and see how they handle themselves in situations and be able to emulate that."
"(Our players) like playing here. Tonight was a great atmosphere. There were a lot of people here, supporting us and our seniors. We get such great support from other student-athletes ... all the sports really support each other really well. Our kids take that personally and want to do well in their own building."
"It's special having a record like (33-0-0). We're extremely proud of our team for that. They've worked extremely hard this year and to have a record like that and not have a blemish on it is pretty amazing. I know they're pretty proud of them for it. If we can finish it off tomorrow, it'll be wonderful, and I think an amazing step for our program moving us forward. It's a nice ending for our seniors who have meant so much for our program, to leave without losing in the regular season."
