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.

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.
