Friars Blanked by Boston College
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. -- The Boston College Eagles defeated the Providence College Friars, 6-0, Friday in HOCKEY EAST action at BC's Kelley Rink. It marked the first time in the history of PC hockey the Friars have been shutout in two consecutive games.
Boston College scored the only goal of the first period when Marty Reasoner broke down the right side and beat PC netminder Boyd Ballard with a low slap shot just inside the right post at the 12:44 mark.
The Eagles increased their lead in the second period to 3-0 with a pair of power-play goals. Mike Lephart notched BC's first man-advantage tally when he one-timed a shot from in front of the crease at 1:56. BC's Brian Gionta completed the scoring in the second period as he ripped a low shot past Ballard's stick side at 14:24.
Gionta opened the scoring in the third as he broke by the PC defense and tucked the puck past Ballard at the 1:05 mark. Jeff Farkas and Chris Masters tallied the BC's final two goals of the game at the 10:21 and 19:23 of the third.
BC goaltender Scott Clemmensen made 24 saves in the win. Ballard and Mark Kane combined to register 33 stops for the Friars.
With the win Boston College improved to 13-6-3 overall and 7-4-2 in HOCKEY EAST action, while Providence dropped to 12-7-1 overall and 6-5 in league play.
Providence College will return to action on Saturday, Jan. 17 against Boston College at PC's Schneider Arena at 7:00 p.m.
