Don’t criticize Muse
Just does job, and can’t hear chirps
With rings in his ears
The Eagles saw Maine snap their seven-game winning streak Sunday, but they are still the team to beat in Hockey East. BC leads the conference in offense (3.71 goals per game) and special teams (+15 net) and ranks second in defense (2.19 goals-against average). Junior forward Cam Atkinson leads the league in goals (17) and senior goalie John Muse is tops in save percentage (.930).
Enter John Muse, who made 32 saves in a 4-0 shutout of the Black Bears Friday and followed that effort with a 38-save gem in Sunday’s 4-1 win at Conte Forum. The senior goaltender’s performance was all that more impressive considered Boston College was outshot by Maine in five of the six periods during the weekend series—Muse stopped 11 or more shots in each of those five stanzas.
