BC Eagles Win Hockey East
Last night was a clash of two of the most potent offenses in the Hockey East: the University of Maine Black Bears and Boston College Eagles. The result: a 7-6 overtime victory for the maroon and gold.
Boston College senior Matt Lombardi scored a hat trick, leading BC to their league-record ninth Big East Championship.
Maine, down 6-4 late in the third period, scored two late goals to force overtime. But it was Lombardi who sealed the deal for the Eagles in 5:25 of overtime.
The Eagles defeated Vermont 3-0 to get the title game, while Maine got by Boston University 5-2.
