The Eagles returned to Conte tonight for the first home game of the season, taking on Hockey East rivals Northeastern.

Emotions were high from the start, with both teams taking hits and throwing punches from early on.

Marshall Warren, who has been phenomenal for BC so far, started the scoring 5 minutes into the game. Warren got into perfect position for a shot and snuck one past the NU goalie.

Unfortunately, Casey Carreau took a major penalty shortly after and was tossed from the game. Luckily, BC and Eric Dop held it down and killed the 5 minute penalty.

The Huskies dominated early in the second period, taking a 2-1 lead less than halfway through. BC started getting lots of chances late in the period, and Marc McLaughlin scored a beautiful power play goal as the clock wound down to send the game into the final period of play tied at 2.

Colby Ambrosio appeared to tie the game in the third, but the refs called no goal. However, under review they determined that the puck bounced off his skate and wasn’t kicked in. Patrick Giles scored an unassisted beauty shortly after to put BC up 4-2.

BC ended the game on a penalty kill, but McLaughlin scored with just under a minute left on the empty net to make it 5-2, but Northeastern got one back with 7 seconds left for a 5-3 final score.
