No. 2 Boston College wins third consecutive game

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. -- Boston College emerged victoriously from a hard-fought road battle on Tuesday night, skating by Merrimack 4-1 in front of a sold-out Lawler Arena. With the victory, the Eagles are eight points clear of first place in the Hockey East standings.

Senior Kevin Hayes set the precedent, scoring 1:23 into the contest, with help from junior Johnny Gaudreau, to keep their lengthy point streaks intact. Gaudreau owns the country's longest point streak at 19 games while Hayes has strung together a stretch of 11 outings with at least one point.

Rookie goaltender Thatcher Demko won his second consecutive game with 19 stops as the Eagles outshot the Warriors 26-20. Boston College limited Merrimack to just two shots in the opening frame.

Senior captain Patrick Brown has scored a goal in consecutive games while newcomer Adam Gilmour netted the power play game-winning goal with 52 seconds to go in the first period.
