Boston College men's hockey split their weekend series, defeating Northeastern before getting crushed by Bentley on the road.
Friday Night: Boston College defeats Northeastern 5-3
The Eagles played in front of home fans at Conte Forum for the first time in 588 days. It was a thrilling game, and a come behind win for the Eagles, who fell behind early and rallied back. Senior Marc McLaughlin continued his strong season with two goals, including an empty netter to seal it for the Eagles. Aidan McDonough of Northeastern had two goals of his own that gave the Huskies the lead, but it was Colby Ambrosio that scored the game winner for the Eagles in the third period. Patrick Giles added some insurance with an incredible steal and snipe as well to double the lead. Goalie Eric Dop finished the game with 22 saves. The win gave Boston College their first Hockey East victory of the season.

Cole Kodsi finished the game with two goals for Bentley, who improved to 2-2-0 on the season, while the Eagles fell to 2-1-1.
