LOWELL, Mass. - Sophomore forward Krys Kolanos and freshman forward Chuck Kobasew each registered two goals and two assists to pace Boston College to a 6-1 HOCKEY EAST win over UMass-Lowell before a crowd of 3,189 at Tsongas Arena.
The victory marked the 600th win of Boston College head coach Jerry York's career. York became only the sixth head coach to reach the 600-win milestone.
Boston College (7-1-0) led 2-0 after one period and 5-0 after two periods, before UMass-Lowell (2-4-0) scored at 9:42 of the final stanza to spoil the shutout bid.
Kolanos opened the scoring for the Eagles, taking a feed from Kobasew at the 5:20 mark of the first period. Freshman forward Justin Dziama notched his first collegiate goal at 18:47, doubling BC's lead going into the second period.
Boston College would capitalize on a slew of UMass-Lowell penalties near the end of the second period, as Kolanos and senior captain Brian Gionta would score two power-play goals in the final 2:06 of the period to extend BC's lead to 4-0. Gionta's goal came during a 5-on-3 power-play opportunity.
Two-and-a-half minutes later, Kobasew would score the Eagle's second five-on-three goal, taking a pass from senior forward Marty Hughes and Kolanos to make the score 6-0. Hughes would finish with three assists.
BC senior goaltender Scott Clemmensen earned the win, making 19 saves. UMass-Lowell junior Jimi St. John finished with 26 saves.
Boston College returns to action on Tuesday, Nov. 7th, hosting Yale in a non-conference matchup at Kelley Rink. Game time is 7 p.m.
