CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – UMaine men’s hockey fell to No. 1 Boston College on Friday night by a score of 4-2 in its first game since Jan. 23.
The Black Bears traveled without two of their top offensive players in Eduards Tralmaks and Jacob Schmidt-Svejstrup for their weekend series down in Chestnut Hill.
After a scoreless first, the Eagles found the back of the net in the second on a short-handed goal from Matt Boldy. Maine responded just a couple minutes later with a goal from Tristan Poissant, but the Eagles added one more in the second from Marc McLaughlin to take a 2-1 lead into the third period.
The Black Bears evened things up again in the third on a goal from Brad Morrissey, but a couple minutes later Alex Newhook scored what would be the game winner. The Eagles added an empty-netter with just under a minute left to capture their 14th win of the season.
“Pretty proud of the kids and the way they competed tonight, and we gave ourselves a pretty good chance to win the hockey game,’ said UMaine Head Coach Red Gendron.
Both teams will face-off again on Saturday night at 5 p.m. on NESN.
