Later in the second period, Blake Hillman notched his first goal of the season with a shot immediately following Tyson McLellan’s faceoff win in the offensive zone.

Boston College scored their first and only goal of the game on the power play at 1:45 of the third period. Chris Brown collected the puck on a redirection and beat Tanner Jaillet to make it a 3-1 game.

Borgström regained the Pioneers three-goal lead at 8:09 of the third period with a shot from the high slot to mark the third power-play goal of the night. Gambrell assisted on the goal. Shortly after Borgström’s second goal of the night, McLellan received a pass from Colin Staub to make it 5-1. Terry had an assist on McLellan’s first goal of the season.
