Frozen Four 2012: Boston College Maintains 2-1 Lead Over Ferris State After Two Periods

Boston College’s speed let up a bit in the second period, but the Eagles still maintain a 2-1 lead over Ferris State after two periods of the NCAA Championship game.

The second period was peppered with penalties for the Eagles, who got a little too physical in the period. Just a minute and a half into the frame, Boston College’s Michael Sit and Ferris State’s Scott Czarnowczan were called for hitting after the whistle.

Ferris State had several grade-A chances in the second period, and the threat frustrated Boston College. The Eagles’ Paul Carey was sent to the box for tripping four minutes into the period. Tommy Cross hooked a Ferris State player on the brink of a game-changing breakaway, and served two minutes for the call. The Eagles headed back to the box for too many men on the ice five minutes after Cross’ penalty.

Through all of Ferris State’s power play opportunities, Boston College goaltender Parker Milner stood tall. Milner continued his stellar play, making 15 saves in the second period, good for 21 so far in the game.

Ferris State will be on their fourth power play of the game when the third period starts, as Boston College’s Bill Arnold was called for roughing with just 24 seconds left in the second.

NCAA Hockey Tournament 2012: Boston College Scores Frozen Four Berth After 4-0 Shutout Of Minnesota-Duluth

Boston College continued its winning ways with a 4-0 shutout of defending national champion Minnesota-Duluth to earn a trip to the Frozen Four.

Eagles goalie Parker Milner made 33 saves, including 18 saves in the third period alone. Milner showed his mettle as he made several quick and nuanced saves as Minnesota-Duluth’s J.T. Brown pressured during a two man advantage midway through the third period. Milner kept opponents scoreless during both Northeast Regional games.

After a scoreless first period for both teams, the Eagles scored two goals within a minute and a half in the second period. Pat Mullane rushed up to the skates of Bulldogs’ goaltender Kenny Reiter and shoveled the puck in for Boston College’s first goal four minutes into the second frame.

Just a minute and 26 seconds later, Steven Whitney slid the puck from behind the net to teammate Bill Arnold, who stuffed it past Reiter’s right side. The tally gave Boston College a 2-0 lead that they carried into the second intermission.

Patrick Wey scored an unexpected goal over a minute into the third period. Wey was trying to keep the puck in the Minnesota-Duluth zone and flung the puck on an unsuspecting Reiter. The goal gave Boston College a 3-0 lead.

Brown and Jack Connolly pushed a flurry of shots on Milner on a Minnesota-Duluth power play midway through the third period. After a frustrated Brown received a roughing call after a hit on Boston College’s Arnold, Johnny Gaudreau saddled up on the left side of Reiter and scored a power play goal to put the game away. The goal was the freshman’s 20th goal of the season and fourth in as many games.

Boston College will face another team from the Land of 10,000 Lakes in their Frozen Four semifinal on April 5th in Tampa, Florida: Minnesota, who defeated North Dakota 5-2 earlier on Sunday.
