With the win, BC now just needs to split its final series against Providence next weekend to lock down the #2 seed in the Hockey East playoffs. 6 teams make the tournament, and the top 2 receive byes into the semifinals, which will be held at UNH's Whittemore Center on March 7-8.
BC controlled much of the game, but a few defensive breakdowns let BU back in it. Then the Eagles seemed to really hit a wall late in the 3rd and in OT, and barely crawled into the shootout. Once they did, BC was able to hand BU its first shootout loss of the year.
