BC earns the #2 seed in the Hockey East tournament with an impressive 5-1 win at Providence. Allie Thunstrom scored two, with one goal each by Mary Restuccia, Kelli Stack, and Maggie Taverna.
Thunstrom was absolutely electric, playing perhaps her best game since her one-person rally last year in Minnesota. She scored just 14 seconds into the game, batting in a rebound off a shot by Stack.
Later in the period, with the score 2-0, she scored a brilliant goal, breaking in down the right side on a 2-on-1 with Restuccia. Restuccia was well-covered. Allie faked a pass to her, getting the goalie to decommit from the shot slightly, then ripped a quick wrister past her.
