A heroic penalty kill from BC kept Lowell 0 for 7 with the man advantage, and an empty net goal on the PK with 3 minutes to go put the game on ice. BC clinches the Hockey East regular season title!
Not BC's best period, but the penalty kill came through to hold the lead with 1 period remaining.
Fitzgerald and Captain Doherty scored early on, but the got one of their own. BC is up after 1.
Rob Scuderi, who graduated from BC in 2001, has been traded from Chicago to LA. Scuderi was traded from Pittsburgh to Chicago earlier this season after a few games as a healthy scratch for the Penguins. He didn't see much ice time in Chicago either, and recently cleared waivers and was sent to the AHL. I don't think anybody is surprised by this trade, and it's good to see Scuderi headed back to LA - he played for the Kings from 2009-2013. The Kings will send Christian Ehrhoff to Chicago in exchange for Scuderi.
Colin White will be held out of the lineup against UMass Lowell Friday night.
The Eagles are outshooting Maine 38-14, but two of Maine's shots hit the back of the net so we have a tight game going in to the third period. Maine tied the score early in the 2nd but Makenna Newkirk gave BC the lead back. Alex Carpenter has been a bit snakebit, failing to score on several breakaways.
The Eagles dominated territorially as expected, but Meagan Tracey made 19 saves in the first period for Maine. BC leads 2-1 after 1 in the first period of Game 1 of the women's Hockey East quarterfinals.
This one still stings.

The women's hockey regular season came to a close this past weekend, and with it Thursday came the release of the ten finalists for the 2016 Patty Kazmaier Award, given annually to the top player in women's college hockey.
Sophomore defenseman Megan Keller as well as senior forwarded Haley Skarupa and Alex Carpenter made the final 10, putting a heavy dose of maroon and gold into the list.
Carpenter, who won the award last season as a sophomore, is one of the favorites to win, along with Northeastern forward Kendall Coyne and Wisconsin goaltender Ann-Renée Desbiens.
The final three will be announced on March 3rd, with the award winner being announced at a ceremony during Women's Frozen Four weekend on March 19th.
Congratulations to all three Eagles!
