BC HIGHLIGHTS AND GAME NOTES

- The last time Boston College shutout three-consecutive opponents was about eight and a half years ago during the 2005-06 season with Cory Schneider at the helm. Boston College blanked Merrimack (5-0) on Jan. 14, 2006 and swept Vermont on Jan. 20-21 (2-0, 3-0).

- Adam Gilmour dialed up his first game-winning goal of the season and third-career multi-goal performance with the early strike at 2:23 of the first followed by a power play rip at 8:53 of the third period. The Hanover, Mass., native's last two-goal game was against UMass on Oct. 25, 2014. Gilmour now has the second-most power play goals (10) for a career and also gathered his fifth game winner as an Eagle.

- Zach Sanford notched his second-career three-point performance with his first-career short-handed tally along with a pair of assists. His first three-point showing took place at RIT on Oct. 18, 2014.

- Scott Savage doled out a pair of assists for his sixth-career two-point game and first since two assists against Vermont on Feb. 14, 2015.

HOW IT HAPPENED

Boston College went full throttle off the draw and lit the lamp 2:23 into regulation. Zach Sanford raced the puck out of CC's zone and rimmed it around the net to Scott Savage in the far corner. Gilmour carved through the circles, put his stick in proper position and perfectly redirected Savage's dish over Jacob Nehama's glove to set the tempo in the first period.

Austin Cangelosi and Ian McCoshen closed out the first frame with two set plays. Chris Calnan ripped a puck off a CC forecheck behind the net and jutted it out to Miles Wood on the right dot. Wood streaked around and zipped the puck over to Cangelosi for the one-time feed. Cangelosi buried it at 15:16 for the 2-0 lead.

Alex Tuch and Zach Sanford worked the puck in the corner together to get it out to Ian McCoshen unattested on the blue line. Tuch backhanded the pass to McCoshen and he unloaded his lethal slapshot through traffic at 18:11 to give the Eagles a 3-0 lead heading into first intermission.

Jeremy Bracco was whistled for high-sticking at 14:45 of the second period, but the Eagles were still able to add a fourth in transition at 16:25 short handed. Sanford won a draw in BC's end and carted it through the zone, dishing to Christopher Brown to the right flank. Brown triggered but the puck sailed wide. Sanford was in position to gather the rebound and roof it over Nehama for the 4-0 lead heading into the second intermission.

Gilmour added his second goal of the night on the power play on a pop shot from out deep. Casey Fitzgerald provided Gilmour with dis at the top of the circle and Gilmour blasted it past Nehama at 8:53 of the third period to cap the 5-0 count. Savage added his second point of the night with the secondary assist.
