Arizona State - 1 / No. 3 Boston College - 3


Kelley Rink / Chestnut Hill, Mass.


Arizona State (2-9-0) / No. 3 Boston College - (10-2-1 / 5-0-1)


- Colin White scored his fourth power play goal of the season and is now one of 18 skaters in all of college hockey with that many power play tallies thus far. The Hanover, Mass. has already matched last year's power play goal total with four this year.

- David Cotton tallied his fourth goal of the season and second power play goal of the year. The Parker, Texas native scored his first-career power play goal in Portland against Maine on Nov. 4. Cotton's power play goal also stood as the game-winning tally, marking the second of his career. He scored Boston College's game-winner in the Eagles first win of the season over Denver.

- Ryan Fitzgerald was Sunday's only multi-point scorer after doling out a pair of assists in BC's victory. The North Andover, Mass. native turned the same trick at home against New Hampshire and has now accrued four assists in his last two outings. In all, Fitzgerald has 13 (4-9-13) points on the season.

- Julius Mattila returned to the lineup after suffering a lower body injury against Colorado College on Oct. 21.

- Sunday's afternoon contest marked the first-ever game against Arizona State.


FIRST GOAL (1-0 - BC) FIRST PERIOD - Colin White - 1:44 - POWER PLAY

- Boston College made quick work of an early Arizona State interference call on Joe Lappin at 1:20. Matthew Gaudreau and Ryan Fitzgerald worked the puck down low to the left of Sun Devil netminder Joey Daccord and popped it out to the slot where Colin White was stationed. White corralled Fitzgerald's dish and wristed it over Daccord's blocker from the right circle to make it a 1-0 game at 1:44.

SECOND GOAL (1-1 - ASU) FIRST PERIOD - Jordan Masters - 16:47 - EVEN STRENGTH

- The Sun Devils tied it up on a broken play in ASU's end. David Norris and Nicholas Gushue crashed an Eagle on the wall and ripped the puck away. Jordan Masters broke free from the pack and accepted Gushue's dish through the seam. Masters had a breakaway on Ryan Edquist and beat him with the backhand to tie it up, 1-1, at 16:47.

THIRD GOAL (2-1 - BC) SECOND PERIOD - Jordan Masters - 5:15 - POWER PLAY

- The Eagles cashed in on another power play opportunity early in the second period after Robert Levin went off for a slash. As the power play waned, Boston College rushed it out of its zone as Scott Savage quarterbacked the play. Savage flew down the left side and shifted over to Michael Kim on the other wing. Kim dumped it in hard off the backboards from the red line and puck took a fortuitous bounce after Daccord misplayed the carom. David Cotton carved in from the slot and took advantage of the unguarded net at 5:15 for a 2-1 advantage.

FOURTH GOAL (3-1 - BC) THIRD PERIOD - Chris Calnan - 17:07 - EVEN STRENGTH

- Chris Calnan iced the victory for the Eagles with nice work off the wall from his linemate. Ryan Fitzgerald swooped in and wrangled the puck off the near wall and backhanded it out to Connor Moore in the neutral zone. Calnan joined up with him and the two rushed into Sun Devil territory. Moore attempted the first shot and Calnan connected on the carom in front to seal the 3-1 win with 2:53
