Providence Falls to BC Again
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The Boston College Eagles dealt the Providence College Friars their third consecutive shutout, 8-0, on Saturday, January 17 in HOCKEY EAST action at PC's Schneider Arena. BC freshman goaltender Scott Clemmensen made 23 saves and tied UNH's Sean Matile's (1996-97) HOCKEY EAST record for shutouts in a season with three.
BC jumped out to a 4-0 first period lead on goals by Andy Powers (two), Jamie O'Leary and Brian Gionta. O'Leary netted the first goal of the game when he wristed in a shot at 5:28. Powers increased the lead with a one-timer at 7:29 and Gionta netted the third goal of the period on a breakaway at 10:35. Twelve seconds later Powers scored his second goal of the period on a two-on-one break away.
The Eagles increased their lead to 6-0 in the second period with power-play goals by Mike Mottau at 4:22 and Chris Masters at 5:43.
Marty Reasoner and Matt Mulhern each notched a power-play goal in the third period to round out the Eagles' scoring.
PC netminders Boyd Ballard and Mark Kane combined recorded 26 stops.
