On the eve of the Notre Dame-Boston College football game, the two schools battled in hockey.
In front of a sellout crowd of 7,884 at Boston College’s Kelley Rink, Boston College won the showdown on the ice 3-1.
BC’s Johnny Gaudreau scored a pair of goals with Pat Mullane getting the third as the Eagles scored twice in the second period and once in the third (empty net goal) on the way to the win. Freshman left wing Thomas DiPauli scored the lone Irish goal with just over 11 minutes left in the game.
The Irish return to CCHA action next week when they travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., to face Michigan on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 15-16 at Yost Arena. Game time both nights is 7:35 p.m.
