Salzano's preview here:

Boston College wins, 2-1, OT. It'll be a relatively low-scoring contest; that much is certain. But despite BC's worst game of the year last week against Northeastern, the Eagles have the horses to take this game with Hockey East Player of the Year, Alex Carpenter, and a healthy freshman phenom Haley Skarupa. BC is really the better team on paper here and there will be no overlooking the Crimson, unlike what would have been possible with, say, Mercyhurst or Clarkson.
