Transcript of Boston College Hockey Game Notes - Dec. 6, 2015 - Northeastern

  • 11-game winning streak

    LONGEST STRETCH

    since 2013-14

  • BOSTON COLLEGE vs. NORTHEASTERNTwo Beanpot foes start off their annual Hockey East series Saturday night on The Heights as Northeastern makes its way to Kelley Rink, a venue the Huskies have not won in since March 7, 2008. Mike Brennan scored the equalizer at 15:02 of the third before Wade MacLeod scored the overtime winner 3:56 into overtime. Since the two Boston adversaries played their first meeting at Kelley Rink on Dec. 5, 1988, the Eagles possess a 32-9-1 record over the Huskies on The Heights. Boston College has not lost to Northeastern in its last eight meetings, stringing together a 7-1 mark, but the last win NU posted over the Eagles was a meaningful one. Northeastern ended Boston College 19-game winning streak that culminated in BCs last national title in 2012 by topping the Eagles, 3-1, at Matthews Arena on Oct. 13, 2012. This cross-town battle stretches back almost 83 years when BC won the opening game of the 222-game series in 8-6 fashion on Feb. 4, 1933. In all, the Eagles lead the Huskies 162-48-15 with a 75-30-1-0 advantage in Hockey East tilts. BC has dominated the series from the onset, winning 57 of the first 65 installments. In the most recent meeting between Boston College and Northeastern, the Huskies knocked off BC in the opening marks Jerry Yorks 15th contest against Northeasterns Jim Madigan. York is 11-2-1 against Madigan over the course of the last four seasons.

    LOWDOWN ON THE HOUNDSNortheastern returns to American soil after playing its last two games at the Friendship Four Tournament in Belfast, Ireland. The Huskies come back to Boston on a high note after thrashing Colgate, 7-1, on Nov. 28. NU also started off its season with a 2-1 home victory over the Red Raiders in its home opener on Oct. 10, but between those two victories, it has been a tough go for Northeastern. The Huskies went winless over the course of those two victories with a 0-10-2 mark as Northeastern was outscored, 46-24, over that winless spell. Overall, Northeastern is 2-11-2 with a 0-7-2 mark in Hockey East play. Third-year forward Zach Aston-Reese is the Huskies leading scorer with 12 points (4-8-12) while sophomore Nolan Stevens guides NU in the scoring department with five goals. Overall, Northeasterns offense is averaging 2.20 goals per game, ranking it 50th in all of college hockey and 10th in the league. The defense is anchored by a pair of goalies in rookie Ryan Ruck and junior Derick Roy. Ruck is winless (0-8-1) in nine games started with a .891 save percentage and a 2.98 goals against while Roy has won two of six starts (2-3-1) with a .833 save percentage and a 3.01 goals against. The Huskies defense as a whole is surrendering 3.20 goals per game, 45th in the NCAA. NU has mustered nine goals on 69 power play chances (13 percent 49th in NCAA) and has killed 75 percent of its penalties (42-of-56 tied for 53rd).
