BOSTON — Lauren MacInnis scored her first goal of the season, while Maddie Mills and Chloé Aurard added tallies of their own to lead the nationally ranked #6 Northeastern women's hockey team (7-2, 6-2 Hockey East) to a 3-0 win over the #4 Boston College Eagles (6-2, 4-2 Hockey East) in Matthews Arena.

  • Tessa Ward and Peyton Anderson also earned points, getting credit for the assist on MacInnis' goal.
  • Aerin Frankel earned her third shutout of the season, increasing her record-holding tally to 31 career shutouts, making 23 saves against the Eagles tonight.
