Andrew Orpik's bullet from the right faceoff dot on a breakout with under three minutes to go gave BC a 3-1 lead and essentially iced the game. Vermont got one back with around 1:10 left to make it interesting, but never really threatened to tie it.
Paul Carey opened the scoring with his first collegiate goal, and Ben Smith added BC's second on a tip-in of a point blast by Joe Whitney.
Out of town, Northeastern absolutely destroyed Maine, 5-0; UNH tied UMass, 1-1; and UML downed Providence, 4-1.
More detailed thoughts coming later. It's good to get the first conference win under our belt.
