TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Paul Carey had two goals and Boston College beat Minnesota 6-1 in the Frozen Four semifinals on Thursday night.
The Eagles (32-10-1) will bring an 18-game winning streak into Saturday night’s NCAA championship game against Ferris State, which beat Union College 3-1 in the first semifinal. Boston College is seeking its fifth hockey title.
Minnesota (28-14-1) made its first Frozen Four appearance since 2005.
Boston College junior Steven Whitney broke a scoreless tie at the 6:03 mark in the first. Whitney came in over the Minnesota blue line, then crashed the net. Barry Almeida found Whitney, who snuck past the defense.
The Eagles were leading 4-0 when Minnesota’s Jake Hansen scored at the 1:26 mark of the third. It was the first goal in 193 minutes, 49 seconds against the Eagles, who have outscored their opponents 12-1 in the NCAA Tournament.
Kevin Hayes and Brian Dumoulin had power-play goals for Boston College, and Chris Kreider also scored. Eagles goaltender Parker Milner collected 30 saves.
