While we were busy sweating the NCAA Tournament over the weekend, the Boston College men's hockey took care of business against UMass in the Hockey East Quarterfinals. The Eagles won 4-1 on Friday night and 4-2 Saturday night to advance the Hockey East semifinals for the seventh consecutive year.

BC got four goals from Jimmy Hayes over the weekend, including a hat trick in Saturday's night win. York also got goals from Barry Almeida (7th of the season), Cam Atkinson (28th), Brian Gibbons (16th), and Joe Whitney (5th).

John Muse stopped 44 shots over the weekend to notch wins 24 and 25 on the year.
