The game’s turning point came late in the middle period when BU with took two penalties within 18 seconds and the hosts took advantage, scoring twice.

BC extended the lead to 5-1 early in the third period before Evan Rodrigues (photo) scored his second goal of the weekend on a snapshot from the high slot. Cason Hohmann, who assisted on the goal, has scored BU’s first-period score converting a rebound following a slick rush by Captain Wade Megan.

The loss gives BC the regular season series, 2-1. The teams could meet again in the Beanpot Final.
