HOW IT HAPPENED
Boston College's early pressure paid dividends as the Eagles throttled UMass in the opening period, outscoring its opponent, 5-0.
The Eagles struck first after heavy pressure paid off in UMass' zone at 4:49 of the first period. Teddy Dohertykicked the puck out to the slot where Josh Couturier awaited the one-timer pass to Ian McCoshen. Couturier slid the disc along the blue line and McCoshen unleashed his patented slapper through traffic for a 1-0 lead.
Alex Tuch added the Eagles' second strike three minutes later at 7:59 on a laser from the left dot. Zach Sanfordwon the puck out the Minutemen's near corner out to Steve Santini on the opposite dot. Santini discovered Tuch sprinting down the left side and the sent the home run pass from blue line to blue line. Tuch gathered it and ripped it past Nic Renyard for a 2-0 lead.
Exactly one minute later, Chris Calnan buried one on the crease off a turnover in Massachusetts' end. The puck squirted out to the goal mouth where Calnan was camped out and his backhander made it 3-0 and chased Renyard out of net for Alex Wakaluk.
Colin White found the back of the net and was the beneficiary off of heavy forechecking in UMass' end. Michael Kim lashed out at a rush up towards Thatcher Demko and Matthew Gaudreau was able to storm and move the puck out of harms way out to White in transition. White made one quick move in front and got one past Wakaluk at 15:13 of the first period for a 4-0 lead.
White followed shortly after with a slashing penalty, but the Eagles were still able to capitalize down a man afterMiles Wood rushed the net at 17:54. Scott Savage wrangled it free from UMass atop BC's blue line and shifted to Wood out front for the 5-0 lead with a short-handed marker.
Boston College did not relent in the second, adding its second short-handed tally 2:28 into the middle stanza. McCoshen was flagged for roughing at 2:03 but a beautiful give and go crafted by Austin Cangelosi and Wood made it a 6-0 affair. Steve Santini sent the pass out to Cangelosi with Wood on his tail. Cangelosi dropped the pass off between his legs for Wood who carried it over to the far post and reunited with Cangelosi on the doorstep for another short-handed attack.
Doherty netted BC's first power play tally of the night at 11:38 on a rebound in front, capitalizing on a Ray Pigozzi high-stick at 9:49.. White provided McCoshen with an open look and the puck pinballed out to Doherty just below the right dot for the put back and a 7-0.
Before the second period concluded, Fitzgerald benefitted off of a huge blast from Michael Kim at 17:27. Kim hammered a slapshot from within the blue line and Fitzgerald nipped the puck with the blade of his stick for the 8-0 lead.
