The Eagles endured an inconsistent season that ended in heartbreak, with consecutive overtime losses to Northeastern in the Hockey East Final and Clarkson in the NCAA Tournament.
BC’s Kali Flanagan scored with 4.9 seconds left to force overtime, but Northeastern’s Kasidy Anderson had an answer in overtime to hand the Huskies their second straight Hockey East Championship.
Daryl Watts led the charge with two goals and an assist, and four different Eagles scored as BC women’s hockey dominated the Terriers 5-1 in the Hockey East Tournament semifinals Saturday.
Behind two goals from Erin Connolly and an overtime game-winner from Ryan Little, the Eagles punched their ticket to the Hockey East semifinals for the ninth year in a row.
Despite taking a decisive first period lead, BC let the host Wildcats back into it and eventually needed a late third period goal to salvage a point.
Makenna Newkirk picked up three assists, Megan Keller scored, and the Eagles beat Maine 5-2 on senior day Friday afternoon. BC has now won four straight games.
Megan Keller got the scoring started just five minutes into the contest, Daryl Watts added two goals and BC women’s hockey never trailed in a 4-1 win over Northeastern Tuesday.
Megan Keller had two goals and two assists, Kelly Pickreign turned away 18 shots for her first career win, and BC rolled to a 7-1 win over UNH.
BC had a 1-0 lead after one period and ultimately outshot Harvard, 53-26, but allowed four unanswered goals to head to the consolation game.
BC has the seventh-worst penalty kill percentage in the country, and has also converted on just one of its past 25 power play opportunities—both reasons the Eagles have had an inconsistent season.
