The Eagles have owned the series for the most part, possessing a 55-13-4 mark against the Minutemen all-time. In recent memory, the Eagles are 5-1-1 against UMass with that lone loss occuring on The Heights Jan. 18, 2013 (2-5). Before back-to-back losses at the Mullins Center in 2011 and 2012, Boston College won 12-straight games against Massachusetts from Feb. 6, 2009 to Oct. 21, 2011. The Eagles are actually in search of their first win against UMass in their third try tonight, having tied (Nov. 15, 2013 - 2-2) and lost (Jan. 18, 2013 - 2-5) in their last two respective outings.</p><p>MAPPING OUT UMASSUMass picked up its second straight win and first Hockey East victory, defeating Northeastern 3-2 last night at Matthews Arena. Making his second consecutive start in net, freshman Henry Dill made 42 saves. Dill has won both games in his young career. Senior Emerson Auvenshine, skating as a defenseman for the first time in his collegiate career, scored the gamewinning goal in the third period. The tally was Auvenshines first career game winner and second career tally overall in 38 career contests. Oleg Yevenko, playing in his 100th career game, dished his second assist in as many contests. He is the lone player on the UMass roster to have reached the century mark in career games played. For a second straight contest, UMass went 1-for-5 on the power play and was a perfect 7-for-7 on the penalty kill. The Minutemen currently rank eighth in the nation in PK percentage at 93.8%, having killed of 15 of 16 on the season. The Minutemen offense heads into Saturdays contest ranked 31st, having scored 2.75 goals per game, but the defense has struggled in its first four outings. The Minutemen rank second to last in college hockey, surrendering 4.50 goals per game. UMass has only committed nine penalty minutes per game, tied for 42nd in the country. Massachusetts is one of six teams, including Boston College, to have won its last two contests.</p><p>OFFENSIVE ONSLAUGHTThe Eagles have scored six goals in each of their last two outings. The last time Boston College combined for 12 goals in two games was last season when the Eagles defeated Boston University, 6-4, and Maine, 7-2, back-to-back on Jan. 17-18, 2014. Under Jerry York, Boston College has combined for 12 goals or more over the span of two games all but three times in a single season. The only seasons BC has never scored 12 or more goals in back-to-back games was 1994-95 (first season), 2003-04 and 2012-13.</p><p>BOUNCING BACKBoston College has actually lost five of its last eight season opening contests dating back to the 2007-08 season, including last Fridays 5-2 setback at UMass Lowell. With the Eagles 6-2 triumph over RIT, Boston College has now won all five games following a season-opening loss. In those instances, the Eagles have advanced to the NCAA Tournament on three of four occassions and won two national titles (2008 &amp; 2010). </p><p>COMING BACK TO CONTESince Jerry York has been the head coach at Boston College, the Eagles possesses a 13-7-1 record in home opening games on The Heights. Dating back to the 2007-08 season, the Eagles are 6-1-1 in the first game of the year at Kelley Rink.</p><p>HISTORY (STILL) IN THE MAKINGThe Schiller Family Head Hockey Coach of Boston College, Jerry York, enters his 43rd season of coaching college hockey. Not only is York the winningest coach in the games history, having amassed 965 victories and a win loss total of 965-578-102 (.619), York is approaching another historic benchmark at his alma mater. Now in his 21st season as BC bench boss, York is just two victories away from earning his 500th victory as Eagles head coach. York is 498-243-68 (.659) in 20 seasons.</p><p>- Head coach Jerry York is two victories shy of earning his 500th-career victory at Boston College #InYorkWeTrust</p><p>- Cam Spiro scored his first-career two-goal game in his 28th outing as an Eagle</p><p>- Ryan Fitzgerald is riding a career-best three-game goal scoring streak, capped by the powerplay game winner against Colorado College</p><p>- In home openers under Jerry York, Boston College has amassed a 13-7-1 mark; the same mark as he had in season openers</p></li><li><p>oct252014 | 7pm | KelleyRink | Chestnut Hill, mass. 3</p><p>USCHO.comPOLL# Team (FPV) W-L-T Points LW 1 Minnesota (39) 2-0-0 989 1 2 Union (11) 4-0-0 950 2 3 North Dakota 3-1-0 853 3 4 Colgate 3-1-0 810 6 5 Providence 1-1-0 734 5 6 Boston College 1-1-0 682 7 7 UMass Lowell 2-0-1 675 9 8 Ferris State 2-1-0 663 4 9 St. Cloud State 1-1-0 605 810 Miami 3-1-0 562 1111 Denver 2-0-0 372 1612 Boston University 1-0-0 369 1413 Minnesota State 2-2-0 357 1214 Michigan 1-2-0 296 1015 Quinnipiac 1-1-1 278 1316 Alaska 4-0-0 267 1917 Vermont 3-0-0 209 NR18 Cornell 0-0-0 199 1519 Minnesota-Duluth 2-2-0 119 2020 Alaska-Anchorage 3-0-1 86 NR</p><p>Others receiving votes: Nebraska-Omaha 78, Robert Morris 67, Notre Dame 62, Bowling Green 47, Michigan Tech 36, Merrimack 27, Northern Michigan 24, New Hampshire 21, Princeton 17, Ohio State 14, Yale 10, Dartmouth 6, Harvard 6, Northeastern 6, Bemidji State 2, Clarkson 1, Mercyhurst 1.</p><p>WERESTILLNOTING</p><p>14-15hockeyeaststandings</p><p>HOCKEY HALL CALLThree members of the Boston College hockey family were enshrined as part of the 2014 Class of the BC Varsity Club Hall of Fame, including Jeff Farkas ('00), William Hogan (33) and Marty Reasoner (98). Farkas earned All-America accolades, was a Hobey Baker finalist and ranks sixth all-time in scoring (190). Hogan was instrumental in resurrecting this treasured sport at Boston College, following suspension of hockey as a varsity sport during the Great Depression. Reasoner earned NCAA East first-team honors, AHCA All-America honors, twice captured All-Hockey East first-team honors and helped bring BC to the NCAA National Championship game in 1998.</p><p>SHUSHING SHUTOUTSBoston College has not been shutout in 101 games. That is the longest active streak in the country. Denver is in second, having scored a goal in 70-consecutive games while Union is in third at 68.</p><p>BABY BIRD(S)Highly-touted rookie defenseman Noah Hanifin is not just the second-youngest player in all of college hockey, he is the second-youngest player EVER to don the maroon and gold. The Norwood, Mass., native will not turn 18 years old until Jan. 25, 2015. University of Michigans Zach Werenski (DOB: July 19, 1997) is college hockeys youngest player. Boston College, as a whole, is the second-youngest club in college hockey behind Boston University. Last season, BC goaltender Thatcher Demko owned the distinction of being college hockeys youngest player. </p><p>CHANGING OF THE GUARDFollowing yet another 25-win year, fourth in the last five seasons for Boston College, the Eagles leapfrogged Boston University in all-time win percentage in Hockey East play. In 30 seasons, the Eagles have compiled a 443-248-73 record for a league-best 62.8 win percentage in 30 seasons as a found member of Hockey East. </p><p>BC: THE NHLs FIRST CHOICENot only did Boston College lead all of college hockey in 2013-14 by dispersing 26 Eagles across the National Hockey League, BC has placed 18 skaters on opening night rosters for the 2014-15 NHL season. That mark is tops in Hockey East. In regards to college hockey, seven first-round picks are among the nearly 200 NHL draft picks on college rosters, including at least one on 40 teams. Boston College is the only team in the country with two first-round draft picks, including junior captain Michael Matheson (Florida 23rd) and Alex Tuch (Minnesota 18th).</p><p>SEASON 26 AT KELLEY RINKBoston College celebrates its 26th season of playing hockey on Kelley Rink at Conte Forum. Starting in 1988, the BCs overall record at Kelley Rink is 288-111-35 (.704). The Eagles played at McHugh Forum prior from 1958-86 when Boston College posted an overall mark of 282-95-10 (.748).</p><p> Team GP W L T Pts GF GA W L T GF GA</p><p>1 Boston University 1 1 0 0 2 8 1 2 0 0 9 1</p><p> UMass Lowell 1 1 0 0 2 5 2 2 1 1 18 16</p><p> Merrimack 1 1 0 0 2 2 1 4 0 0 12 8</p><p> Vermont 1 1 0 0 2 6 2 3 0 0 11 3</p><p> Massachusetts 2 1 1 0 2 4 10 2 2 0 11 18</p><p>6 Maine 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 4 0 8 17</p><p> New Hampshire 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 2 0 7 6</p><p> Notre Dame 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 2 0 18 13</p><p> Providence 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 2 0 7 12</p><p> Boston College 1 0 1 0 0 2 5 1 2 0 14 9 Connecticut 1 0 1 0 0 1 2 1 2 1 8 12</p><p> Northeastern 2 0 2 0 0 4 9 0 4 0 4 15</p><p>Usatodaypoll# Team (FPV) LW W-L-T Wks1.
