0:00 : BC starts the period on the power play, and Brian Boyle is a force down low, but the Eagles fail to score.

2:20: One too many Eagles means a power play for the Sioux.

3:15: North Dakota gets the lead back with a power play goal. Oshie’s shot from a tight angle rebounds off the back boards and to the near post, where Toews swats it across the goal line. After a video review, it’s a goal. Everyone in the house already knew that. 2-1 Sioux.

3:27: BC gets another man advantage as Porter goes off for interference.

5:27: Lamoureux makes some dandy saves and clears his crease. Penalty over.

13:00: Boston College’s Joe Rooney clangs one off the post glove side.

13:27: Penalty North Dakota. Fabian for hooking.

15:21: Lamoureux comes up big time and time again, but the Eagles finally get one past him. Bertram gets his second of the game, putting in a rebound. We’re tied at two.

16:28: TV timeout. Shots unofficially 18-5 in favor of BC this period.

16:58: BC’s Mike Brennan heads to the box for interference. Great save by Schneider right off the bat.

20:00: Penalty over and then period over. Shots on goal are 34-19 in favor of BC for the game, 20-7 for the period.

Stay tuned for the third period in a separate blog post.

    It’s great to see the depth from top to bottom in Hockey East. There are no easy points anymore. It used to be that if you were playing Merrimack or Providence, or Lowell etc you knew it was a win for the BC’s,Maine’s, BU’s and UNH. Great to see, makes for great hockey

  • BC is by far and away the lock to win the conference coach??????? Hello, BU, UNH and Maine would all disagree strongly and Vermont is no slouch..Will people get over BC please, as of now they are playing poorly and grossly over rated.

  • Grizz: He doesn’t say BC is a lock to win the conference. He says they’re a lock to be the favorite– in other words, all other things being equal, most people would pick them to win if they had to make a choice.

    “Boston College is far and away the lock favorite for the regular season”
