CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Following a two-goal outburst from sophomore Chris Calnan and another multi-point performance from classmate Austin Cangelosi, No. 17 Boston College claimed three points off of New Hampshire in Hockey East action thanks to a 4-2 triumph on Saturday night at Kelley Rink.
Calnan tallied the game-winner, his second of the season, while Cangelosi recorded a three-point night, including one goal and two assists. The Estero, Fla., native has accounted for five points in his last two games.
Junior blue liner Teddy Doherty logged his third goal of the season while senior assistant captain Quinn Smith doled out a pair of assists in the victory.
Sophomore goaltender Thatcher Demko turned away 25-of-27 UNH attempts and also picked up his fifth-career assist while Wildcat goaltender Adam Clark stopped 29 shots. Boston College outshot UNH, 33-27, as both New Hampshire tallies came via the power play. BC finished 0-for-3 on the power play.
New Hampshire cashed in late in the opening stanza, taking advantage of a 5-on-3 situation for the contest's opening marker at 17:42.
Rookie Zach Sanford (interference) and sophomore Ryan Fitzgerald (16:24) followed one another into the penalty box and UNH worked the open ice with Matt Willows as the benefactor. Grayson Downing crossed the zone with a pass to Andrew Poturalski on the left dot. Poturalski drew the penalty kill with a head fake and slipped it over to Furgele for the successful blast in between the circles. Willows tipped it in front to give the Wildcats a 1-0 lead.
Demko came up huge with 25 seconds remaining in the opening period to keep it a one-goal game after thwarting another Willows's bid after he came streaking down the center of the sheet uncontested.
Two minutes into the second period, junior Brendan Silk nearly tied it up, but Clark made an acrobatic kick save. Following Silk's attempt, the longevity of UNH's lead did not last long after that.
Doherty's laser from the right dot locked it up at 4:29 with a crisp feed from junior captain Michael Matheson atop the zone. Cangelosi won the puck off the half wall to Matheson stationed within the blue line. Doherty wriggled free on the right dot and whistled a wrister past Clark on the near side to tie at 1-1.
The Eagles wasted no time capitalizing on their momentum after Cangelosi slipped one through Clark on the ensuing draw 16 seconds later to give BC its first advantage of the game.
New Hampshire won the faceoff and trigged on net. Demko made the pad save and the disc ricocheted out to rookie Zach Sanford swooping in from the right dot. Sanford skated the puck through the zone and handed it off to Cangelosi on the doorstep. With little room to spare, Cangelosi brought it to his backhand and lifted it past Clark for the 2-1 advantage.
The Eagles were relentless in their pursuit and BC grabbed its third goal in transition on a great tip by Calnan out front.
Sophomore Scott Savage cleared the puck out of Boston College's end to Smith parked on the blue line. Smith stayed onsides and let Calnan streak through the middle four strides ahead. With Clark screened by one of his own defenseman, Smith threw the puck towards the goal mouth where Calnan made the play on the crease. Calnan sought the puck out of mid-air and redirected it to the back of the net at 8:54 for the 3-1 advantage.
The Wildcats got one back on broken play behind BC's end at 14:40. Boston College's defense had trouble communicating on the clear and the puck broke out to Matt Willows on the near post. With Demko out of position, Willows threw the puck across the goal line with ease to cut the Eagles' lead to a goal heading into the second intermission, 3-2.
New Hampshire managed to outshoot the Eagles in the third period, but Demko came up large in several spots, including a quick stop on Maxim Gaudreault around the 7:00-minute mark.
Up a goal, Calnan was whistled for tripping late in the third at 16:37, but the BC penalty killing staved it off and the sophomore made up for his infraction by potting the empty-net goal with 1:13 remaining in regulation.
Cangelosi corralled a rebound and dropped it off for Smith on the Eagles' blue line. Calnan scooted ahead and took the pass from Smith and sent it into the unguarded net two strides past the red line to ice the 4-2 contest.
Boston College will close out the first half of the season when Michigan comes to town for a Saturday night tilt at Kelley Rink starting at 7 p.m. on Dec. 13. The Eagles and Wolverines collided in last year's season opener where U of M came away with a 3-1 victory at Yost Ice Arena. Saturday's game will pit the two active winningest coaches in college hockey history against one another. Jerry York has accrued 971 wins while Michigan's Red Berenson has piled up 796 victories.
