The Eagles have won the last five regular season titles, but a white-hot Northeastern side and an uncharacteristic season from Katie Crowley’s bunch has BC looking up at the holiday break.
The Eagles didn’t convert on a single power play while committing a season-high in penalties, resulting in three goals while on the advantage for BU in a rivalry win.
Behind goals from four different players, BC rallied for two unanswered goals after giving up an early two-goal lead to knock off its Comm. Ave rival—who it hasn’t lost to since Nov. 5, 2016.
The Eagles bring a spotless 7-0 record at Kelley Rink in the 53rd edition of the Battle for Comm Ave, with BU failing to win a game in four tries against them last season.
A bit more than a month ago, BC pulled out a 4-3 victory at Walter Brown Arena. Still undefeated in the Hockey East, the Eagles will look to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the season series this weekend.
