The Eagles have rebounded from a brutal stretch in which they lost six of seven games to enter the Beanpot on a six-game winning streak after a win over Holy Cross on Friday.
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.
Daryl Watts and Lindsay Agnew both found the net for the Eagles, but BC simply couldn’t overcome seven different penalties and dropped a tough 3-2 decision to New Hampshire Saturday.
Both hockey teams are in action this weekend, with the men playing a two-game set against No. 13 Arizona State, while the women attempt to right the ship in conference play against New Hampshire.
Megan Keller scored the game-winning goal in overtime to lift the Eagles past a resilient Merrimack team, snapping a brief two-game losing streak.
Daryl Watts brought the Eagles within one score early in the third period with her 11th goal of the season, but BC wasn’t able to complete a late comeback and dropped its second straight to the Terriers.
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.
