CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Top-ranked North Dakota and fourth-ranked Boston College raced up and down the ice for 40 minutes, putting 52 combined shots on net without a goal, before the game was halted because of poor ice conditions.

With two periods having been played, the game was ruled a tie. According to the NCAA rule book (Rule 6, Section 55 d), "If, at any time during the course of the game, a referee believes that the playing conditions ... have become unsatisfactory, the referee may stop the game; and the score of the game shall be what is was when the game was stopped. It shall be "no contest" unless two periods have been completed."

The sellout crowd of 7,884 in Kelley Rink left disappointed after seeing two exciting periods of hockey. Both teams enjoyed several prime scoring opportunities, but BC freshman John Muse (28 saves) and North Dakota senior J.P. Lamoreaux (24 stops) thwarted each chance.

Each team had 15 shots on net in the first period. North Dakota (1-0-1) had a 13-9 edge in shots in the second period.

Boston College (1-1-1) returns to action on Sunday, October 21 at Vermont. The game will mark the Hockey East opener for both teams.
