CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Junior Jimmy Hayes scored two goals, sophomore Brian Dumoulin recorded three assists and third-ranked Boston College capitalized on all three of its power-play opportunities to earn a 5-3 Hockey East victory over UMass-Lowell before 7,623 fans at Kelley Rink.

The teams were tied at 1-1 after one period and 2-2 after two periods. BC scored three times in the final frame, including one empty-net score, to earn the victory and sole possession of first place in the conference standings.

Junior Paul Carey snapped the 2-2 tie with a power-play goal at 10:57 of the third period and captain Joe Whitney notched the decisive score at 15:59, finishing Dumoulin's feed from just outside the goal crease.

After UMass-Lowell trimmed the BC lead to one goal (at 4-3) just 19 seconds later on Patrick Cey's third goal of the season, Hayes concluded the scoring into an empty net at 19:30 for the 5-3 final.

Host Boston College outshot UMass-Lowell, 46-25, including a 16-7 edge in the middle period.

UMass-Lowell freshman goaltender Marc Boulanger recorded 41 saves in 58:56. He falls to 0-7-1.

The River Hawks opened the scoring at 7:49 of the opening period on Shayne Thompson's third goal of the season and the Eagles tied the score on a Hayes power-play goal at 11:32.
