#5 BC knocks off #6 UMass 3-0 in Amherst

Boston College hockey players learn to rebound quickly whether after a big victory or a tough loss. Last night the Eagles leaned on the dynamic goaltending of Spencer Knight and the explosive scoring from Alex Newhook (10th goal) and Logan Hutsko (15th goal) to thwart UMass Amherst. Graham McPhee potted his 3rd of the season as well.

The Eagles move into a first-place tie with UMass in Hockey East with two games in hand. The top 6 teams are within 3 points of each other in one of the wildest seasons in recent memory. Check the standings here.

BC faces BU in the Beanpot Monday night at 8:00. This game does not count as a conference game. BU has quietly rebounded from a slow start and have climbed up to within one point of BC in the conference standing.
