"I'm really proud of our team. To win a Hockey East regular-season championship is a great moment for us. I'm really proud of how they've handled themselves this season and how we keep getting better and better. Today, in particular, it didn't necessarily show on the scoreboard, but I thought we played a great puck-possession game. Everyone got involved. We had some real nice plays that our players made, and I was happy with the game."
HOW IT HAPPENED
1st, 6:35 // 1-0 - BC GOAL: Dana Trivigno won the draw to Makenna Newkirk, and she played back to Kaliya Johnson at the point. Johnson sent a shot in, which Andie Anastos tipped past Madison Litchfield in the slow slot for the Eagles' 1-0 lead.
2nd, 14:47 // 2-0 - BC GOAL: The third line's forecheck kept the puck in the zone and after UVM tried to clear, the puck hit off Tori Sullivan's skate leaving Kristyn Capizzano and Meghan Grieves centrally with the play. Capizzano crossed and laid the puck off to Grieves, who curled and wristed a high shot past Litchfield for the two-goal lead.
3rd, 00:39 // 3-0 - BC GOAL: Skarupa battled deep and sent Carpenter back behind the goal with the puck. Carpenter created space and then fed a short pass in front to Kenzie Kent on the doorstep, and her hard-angle shot found space past Litchfield to push the score to 3-0.
