It wasn't the best start for the Eagles tonight against UConn, as both teams looked sloppy from the drop of the puck. The Huskies played slightly less bad early, outshooting BC 14-8 in the first period, but a late BC goal in the frame from Julius Mattila tilted the ice right in the Eagles favor from there.
Two second period goals from Logan Hutsko and Julius Mattila (again) put the game out of reach for the Huskies, and despite pulling their goalie with 8:40 (!) remaining in the game, UConn couldn't close the gap -- and in fact Mattila completed the hat trick on an empty net to FINNISH the scoring at 4-0.
Game two of the home and home is tomorrow night at 7pm on ESPN as the Eagles look to climb to .500 for the first time this season!
