Notre Dame vs. Boston College score update: Eagles in control after two periods, 2-0

After a scoreless first period at Kelley Rink, things were turned up a notch during the middle stanza as the Eagles jumped ahead by a two-goal margin heading into the intermission. Notre Dame did not register a shot before the 9:00 mark of the stanza as BC held a 12-2 lead in the period, extending it to 16-11 through 40 minutes.

The teams were whistled for matching penalties at the 4:33 mark, creating a 4-on-4 sheet of ice for the speedy squads to work with. It was the home team that struck the board first as captain Pat Mullane netted his fourth of the season, depositing a low shot under the five-hole of Notre Dame's Steven Summerhays just eight seconds later. Senior defenseman set up the play with his fifth helper of the campaign.

Sophomore Johnny Gaudreau doubled the BC lead at 16:30 as he converted an odd-angle shot from the goal line over Summerhays' top shelf, assisted by rookie Michael Matheson.
