Hockey: Irish Defeat BC, 4-2, to Advance

Notre Dame Hockey | Mar. 16, 2014 | Notre Dame Athletics

Senior goaltender Steven Summerhays stopped 30-of-32 shots and Notre Dame got goals from Stephen Johns, Sam Herr, Bryan Rust and Jeff Costello to lead the Irish to a 4-2 win over Boston College in game three of the Hockey East Quarterfinal round at Conte Forum.

Boston College got goals from Kevin Hayees and Patrick Brown on the night. The Irish shut out Hobey Baker candidate Johnny Gaudreau as his 31-game point streak came to an end and he remains tied with Maine's Paul Kariya for the Hockey East consecutive point streak record.

The win improves 11th-ranked Notre Dame to 23-12-2 while second-ranked Boston College goes to 26-7-4. The Irish will play at TD Garden in Boston on Friday, March 21 against UMass-Lowell in the 5:00 p.m. game. The River Hawks advanced by beating Vermont, two games to one. Providence will meet New Hampshire in the other semifinal.
