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.
