Boston College women's hockey defeats Guelph 5-1 in exhibition


The Eagles shook off the cobwebs tonight with an exhibition victory over CIS foe Guelph University at BU's Walter Brown Arena. Reigning Patty Kazmaier award winner Alex Carpenter scored two goals in the winning effort. Sophomores Katie Burt and Gabri Switaj split time between the pipes.

BC deployed a new, more active-looking power play tonight and generated some decent chances despite coming up empty on four tries. Power play was one of the team's few Achilles heels last season so that will be something to keep an eye on.

The season gets underway for real next Friday night at home against Minnesota Duluth.
