Game Recap

No. 3 Eagles Top Warriors, 4-1

Tuesday, January 4, 2005

North Andover, Mass. - Boston College scored two goals in the second period and added a pair of power play goals in the third to defeat Merrimack College 4-1 in a Hockey East contest at J. Thom Lawler Arena on Tuesday night.

Chris Collins (Fairport, N.Y.) scored a goal and added an assist for the third-ranked Eagles, who improved to 10-3-3, 5-1-3. Merrimack fell to 8-13-2, 1-9-1.

After trailing 1-0 after the first period, Matt Greene tied the game for the Eagles, finishing senior Ryan Murphy's (Rumson, N.J.) effort. The puck slid through the crease to Greene where the rookie center found the right side of the net open at 10:38 of the second period.

Freshman defenseman Mike Brennan (Smithtown, N.Y.) gave the Eagles their first lead with 4:05 to play in the second period, beating Merrimack goaltender Jim Healey (Holyrood, N.F.) to the far post with a wrist shot from the right side, which snuck under Healey's blocker.

Collins pushed the lead to two goals on a power play, pushing a rebound through after Joe Rooney took a tough angle shot from the right less than five minutes into the third period. Ryan Shannon (Darien, Conn.) put the game away for BC, sneaking a wrist shot through a screen from the point for another power play goal with less than four minutes to play.

Senior center Brendon Clark (Reading, Mass.) gave Merrimack a 1-0 lead at the 8:17 mark of the first period with his first goal of the season, sending in a rebound off a shot from the point by junior defenseman Rob Lalonde (Williamsville, N.Y.). Lalonde got the loose puck from junior Forward Matt Johnson (Eden Prairie, Minn.) after sophomore forward Justin Mills (Edgerton, Alb.) sent a shot from the right slot off the far post. LaLonde and Johnson collected assists on the play.

BC outshot the Warriors 30-18, including a 15-4 edge in the second period. Healey made 26 saves for Merrimack, while Matti Kaltiainen (Espoo, Finland) stopped 17 shots for the Eagles.

BC will return to North Andover to face the Warriors at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Lawler Arena.
