Eagles extend unbeaten streak to 13

The Boston College women's hockey team picked up an important win on the road last night, taking down #2 Clarkson 5-1. This win admittedly comes with a bit of an asterisk, as Clarkson was playing without its two best players, Jamie-Lee Rattray and Erin Ambrose, who were on national team duty in a tournament for Canada. However, the pairwise rankings don't care about such things, and BC was duly rewarded for their huge win, vaulting from #6 to #3 after the game.

The tone was set early on when Emily Pfaizer scored a power play goal just 1:00 in to the game. Ten minutes later, Dana Trivigno added another to make it 2-0.

BC's biggest problem on the night was penalties, but they made up for it by going 6-for-6 on the penalty kill, including a crucial stretch just after their second goal in which they killed a full 90 seconds of 5-on-3 time for Clarkson.

The rest of the scoring came in the third period, with Taylor Wasylk, Ashley Motherwell, and Melissa Bizzari pouring in insurance goals for the Eagles. Bizzari's goal was assisted by Alex Carpenter, who now has a point in 15 consecutive games - with 12 goals and 14 assists during that time. That's downright Minnesotan.

BC returns to the ice this afternoon with a 3 PM tilt at St. Lawrence. The Saints wrecked #9 Northeastern 6-0 last night, so this should be a pretty good test for the Eagles.
