The third-ranked Eagles are the obvious team to beat in the 40th edition of the Beanpot, but they’ll face stiff competition in the opening round—and anything can happen in the historic tournament.
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.
BC’s Katie Burt tied the NCAA record set by Minnesota’s Noora Räty for career wins (114) as the Eagles used a big third period to down Providence on Friday night.
For the second time this week, Toni Miano single handedly carried BC to victory, scoring a pair of third-period goals—the second of which secured the win and the weekend sweep of the Catamounts.
Toni Ann Miano recorded a hat trick—the first of the senior defenseman’s career—in the first period alone and tacked on the game-winning goal in overtime to send BC home with a bounce-back victory.
Daryl Watts and Makenna Newkirk each recorded five points, as the Eagles blanked New Hampshire, logging their second shutout of the season and their first since mid-November.
