The Eagles’ first goal came off their signature speed and perfect passing six minutes into the opening frame. After Dumoulin shut down a 2-on-1 chance for the Gophers, Bill Arnold got the puck and passed it up to Barry Almeida. The senior captain fired a puck on Patterson, as Steven Whitney used his lightning speed to crash the net and send home the one-timer.
The second goal came in the middle period. After BC won a faceoff, Cross controlled the puck at the top of the zone and sent a pass over to Whitney. The junior skated forward a few feet, then slid the puck over to a cutting Kevin Hayes, who rocketed a wrister into the back of the net.
After a hard-fought win, BC will be taking part in the most special practice of the year on Friday.
“We always talk to our team about the very best practice is the one between the semifinal game and the national championship game,” York said. “That’s a special one. And Ferris and ourselves are both going to get a chance to have that very best practice you can.”
