Game Recap

No. 3 Eagles Sweep Warriors, 3-1

Saturday, January 8, 2005

North Andover, Mass. - Senior center Ryan Shannon scored a goal and assisted on the other two Boston College tallies to lead the third-ranked Eagles to a 3-1 win over Merrimack College in a Hockey East game on Saturday night in J. Thom Lawler Arena.

Boston College improved to 11-3-3, 6-1-3 Hockey East, while Merrimack fell to 8-14-2, 1-10-1. The Eagles, who defeated the Warriors 4-1 on Tuesday, took a 2-0 lead in the season series.

Junior wing Patrick Eaves, the Eagles' leading scorer who missed TuesdayŐs game due to illness, gave Boston College a 1-0 lead with his eighth goal of the season halfway through the second period. Shannon (Darien, Conn.) passed to senior defenseman Andrew Alberts (Eden Prairie, Minn.), who sent a slap shot off the glass and around the net. Eaves picked up the carom by the left post and dumped it into the open goal.

Shannon gave the Eagles a two-goal cushion just 2:11 later. Senior linemate Dave Spina (Mesa, Ariz.) found Shannon cutting to the net, who beat Warrior goaltender Jim Healey to the far post with a one-time shot.

Merrimack junior Matt Johnson (Eden Prairie, Minn.) cut the lead to one goal with 13:34 to play in the third period on a 5-on-3 power play. Sophomore defenseman Jeff Caron (Moncton, N.B.) and junior Bryan Schmidt (Bloomington, Minn.) passed the puck back and forth at the point, when Schmidt found Johnson at the left post with a cross-ice pass. Boston College goaltender Matti Kaltiainen got a piece of the shot, but it trickled through his legs for Johnson's sixth goal of the season.

Sophomore center Brian Boyle restored the two-goal lead for the Eagles just over four minutes later, scoring on the power play off assists by Shannon and Alberts.

Kaltiainen made 20 saves for Boston College, while Healey stopped 31 shots for Merrimack. It was the first time BC had ever won two regular season games in a single season at Merrimack.

The Warriors face UMass Lowell in a home-and-home series next weekend, playing the River Hawks on the road on Friday before hosting a game on Saturday. Boston College will face Yale on the road on Tuesday.
