A very serious recap of the second half of BC MIH’s season. Part 1 can be found here.

12/29: BC 1, Quinnipiac 3

BC started out the second semester with a loss to Quinnipiac, which wasn’t great, but was tolerable because 5 players were at World Juniors.

12/30: BC 1, Ferris State 1

Then BC tied Ferris State in the consolation game of the Three Rivers Classic which was not tolerable and also didn’t help our end of season pairwise ranking.

1/8: BC 3, Providence 1

BC returned to Boston for Frozen Fenway in January. After a rough tournament, it was great to see BC fight hard and win.

1/13: BC 1, BU 2

But then BU had to take on a really tough BU team and Agganis and just could not break through BU’s defense and goaltending.

1/16: BC 0, BU 3

...And then BC got shutout by at Conte. So that was not fun.

1/20: BC 6, UMass 1

BC got back to winning by earning a decisive win over UMass. Which was great, but also expected.

1/24: BC 2, UConn 1

BC’s two first period goals were enough to earn them a win against UConn in late January, making them 2-0 against the Huskies this season.

1/28: BC 6, Notre Dame 4

The Eagles earned one of their most exciting wins of the year at the end of January, coming from behind to defeat Notre Dame at Conte. Byeeee Notre Dame, Hockey East won’t miss you!

2/3: BC 6, UNH 4

BC played a typical @ UNH game at UNH, going into the third with the lead and then almost giving it up. But they came away with the win, and winning at UNH always feels good.

2/6: BC 1, BU 3

BC lost to BU in the first round of the Beanpot as they were still unable to figure out how to score on the Terriers.

2/10: BC 3, Merrimack 6

Between Beanpot rounds, BC lost to Merrimack at home by 3 goals, which was... pretty terrible.

2/13: BC 2, Northeastern 4

And then the Eagles came in 4th in the Beanpot for the first time in many years.

2/17: BC 3, UVM 3

The Eagles followed the Beanpot with a 3-3 tie with UVM which wasn’t good, but at least wasn’t a loss? But at this point we started wondering if this team would ever win again...

2/18: BC 2, UVM 2

BC followed up that tie with ANOTHER tie, this time blowing a 3 goal lead. And we were all just kind of baffled and sad.

2/23: BC 1, UMass Lowell 4

BC closed out the regular season at Conte with a loss to a tough UMass Lowell team.

2/24: BC 1, UMass Lowell 3

The Eagles extended their winless streak the next night, losing to UML on the road.

3/10: BC 7, UVM 0

We were all worried for the Hockey East quarterfinals because BC had struggled against UVM a few weeks prior, but the Eagles dominated the Catamounts and Joe Woll earned his first NCAA shutout. Just total domination from the Eagles.

3/11: BC 7, UVM 4

BC scored 7 goals again in game 2, advancing to the semifinals without needing a third quarterfinals game.

3/17: BC 3, BU 2

In the Hockey East semifinals, BC finally figured out how to score on BU and earned a win, securing an appearance in the Hockey East finals!

3/18: BC 3, UMass Lowell 4

The Eagles fought hard against Lowell in the Hockey East Championship game, but the Riverhawks are terrific this season and BC just couldn’t pull off the win. Because of a few bad losses, the Eagles ended up missing out on the NCAA Tournament.

Although this season didn’t turn out exactly how we would have liked, this team fought hard and we’re proud of them and excited for next year!
