The Boston College men’s hockey team ended their losing streak tonight, defeating BU in the Beanpot consolation game by a score of 4-2.

The Eagles got started with a couple good chances from Christian O’Neill, and then took an early 1-0 lead off a Nikita Nesterenko goal. They increased that lead to 2-0 off an Eamon Powell power play goal before BU cut the lead the 2-1 late in the first.

Neither team was able to score in the second period, so BC took that 2-1 lead into the second intermission as well despite only managing 4 shots on goal during those 20 minutes.

Despite some good chances from BC, the Terriers tied the game up at 2 with 11:44 to go in regulation, just after both teams had penalties expire, but Andre Gasseau immediately took the lead back for BC to make it 3-2. Trevor Kuntar sealed the deal with an empty net goal as the clock wound down, and BC took this one 4-2 for a third place Beanpot finish. This was one of the most consistent games BC has played in a while, and hopefully the win will help boost the team’s confidence enough to keep these wins coming.
