It was the same story on repeat for Providence College - the same story Hockey East opponents have had to deal with over and over all season long: just too much BC. Boston College used a balanced attack to tear through PC 8-1 on the Friars' Senior Day on Saturday, winning yet again and finishing off a 34-0-0 regular season.

It was the first time in history that a Hockey East team finished a season unbeaten and untied. The Eagles join the University of Minnesota, who completed the feat in 2012-13, as teams that have completed a perfect regular season.

Of course, the Gophers that season finished the job, posting a 41-0-0 mark to win the national championship - a run that included a narrow, dramatic overtime win in the NCAA tournament semifinal over Boston College, when many of this year's talented seniors were just freshmen. The Eagles were just upstarts then, but now they'll be the big dog entering the tournament.

Six different Eagles tallied goals in the win on Saturday afternoon. Andie Anastos scored a hat trick, and Haley Skarupa added a pair of goals and an assist. Toni Ann Miano, Lexi Bender, Kenzie Kent, and fourthliner Ryan Little added the other goals for BC.

BC begins its quest for postseason glory next Friday afternoon in the Hockey East quarterfinals. BC will take on Maine, who finished 8th in the regular season. Game 1 is on Friday at 2 PM at Conte Forum.

The Eagles have won 34 consecutive games relatively easily. Now they need 7 more victories to cement their legacy. But for now, they'll reflect upon and enjoy the accomplishment of making Hockey East history today in Providence.
