Boston College vs. Merrimack score update: Eagles, Warriors scoreless after first period

Kelley Rink has been a real house of horrors for the visiting Merrimack Warriors over approximately the past decade as the current No. 1 Boston College Eagles are 23-0-2 in the last 25 contests when taking on their Catholic school brethren. For the first time in the 2012-13 Hockey East season, the teams matched up on Friday night in Chestnut Hill and played to a pretty even stanza, finishing in a scoreless tie.

Additionally, the teams finished the stanza with a 14-14 tie in the shots on goal department.

The Warriors dominated the opening half of the period, while the Eagles came back with the better of the opportunities in the latter portion. BC senior Parker Milner and Merrimack junior Sam Marotta were strong at each end of the ice to turn away all they faced.

Perhaps the best chance came in the early moments as Warrior senior defender Kyle Bigos rang the post behind Milner as he settled into his crease early. Marotta, a Bridgewater, Mass. native, saw some strong shots of his own in finishing the period without a blemish.
