The Eagles were unceremoniously bounced from the ACC tournament quarterfinals last year by Notre Dame, and have a chance to avenge the loss with a three-game weekend series at home.
BC led by just one at the break, but rolled to 15 second half goals en route to a convincing win over Brown on Saturday afternoon, its fifth-straight to start the year.
BC entered the third period down one, but four goals in the final frame—three of which were scored by Jesper and Julius Mattila—guaranteed the Eagles a much-needed win and a first round bye in the Hockey East playoffs.
Dropping their ninth game in a row, the Eagles once again failed to eclipse the 60-point mark and committed a season-high 35 turnovers, including 20-plus in the first half alone, against the Yellow Jackets.
BC will host Wake Forest, a fellow ACC bottom feeder, on Thursday night, in search of its first win over the Demon Deacons in four years and second conference victory all season.
Not only did Katie Burt become the all-time winningest goaltender in NCAA history, but the Eagles also locked up the conference’s regular-season crown, capping off the weekend series sweep in Providence.
