Chestnut Hill, Mass. - No. 1 Boston College women's hockey (30-1-1, 20-0-0 WHEA) blanked No. 6 Boston University (21-8-2, 15-5-0 WHEA), 5-0, Thursday on Senior Night at Kelley Rink. Freshman goaltender Katie Burt recorded her ninth shutout in the Eagles' second win over the Terriers this season.
Boston College swarmed the BU net in the first period, amassing 15 shots on goaltender Erin O'Neil.
Junior forward Alex Carpenter finally cracked O'Neil 12 minutes into the opening frame. Senior defenseman Emily Pfalzer slid the puck over to freshman defenseman Megan Keller at the blue line. Carpenter provided the redirection on Keller's slap shot to make it 1-0, Eagles.
The Eagles added on another goal before time expired in the first. Freshman Toni Ann Miano scored her third goal of the season on a give-and-go with freshman forward Kenzie Kent to give BC a two-goal cushion heading into the first intermission.
Four Boston College penalties in the second period gave the Terriers plenty of opportunities to attack the Eagle net. Burt withstood 16 shots from the BU offensive rush to keep Boston University goalless in the middle stanza.
"I thought the kids handled it really well. We kind of knew what they were trying to do on the power play and I thought the team did really well in the penalty kill. Katie Burt was tremendous. On a lot of those opportunities she covered up the puck and didn't allow them to have a second chance," said head coach Katie King Crowley.
Although Boston University outshot BC, 16-7, in the middle frame, the Eagles added on two goals at the end of the second. Sophomore forward Andie Anastos lifted the puck into the upper glove-side corner for BC's third goal of the night
The Terriers pulled O'Neil on a power play with 25 seconds to play in the period to gain an extra man in the attack. Junior forward Haley Skarupa played spoiler with an empty-netter to extend the Eagles' lead to 4-0 after two periods.
The third period saw two 10-minute misconduct penalties, one on BU senior defenseman Shannon Stoneburgh and the other on BC junior forward Dana Trivigno. Stoneburgh was also dealt a game misconduct penalty.
Carpenter finished off the Eagles' 30th victory of the season on a top shelf shorthanded goal with four minutes to play.
