Boston College has claimed the 2012 Frozen Four championship by taking down Ferris State, 4-1. This is their third title in five years and their fifth in the last 13.
Almost all of the action came in this first period of this game. BC jumped to an early 1-0 lead when Steven Whitney scored the opening goal. Ferris tied it at one on a rebound shot by Center Travis Ouellette. That would prove to be their only score.
Paul Carrey scored for BC moments before the end of the first period to put them up for good. There was no scoring in the second period, and the Eagles added two goals in the third to put this one away.
Ferris played them tough early, but ultimately just did not have the fire power to hang with the heavily favored BC squad.
The Eagles were able to control possession and they were in firm control of the pace of this match. It was a well played game, and BC proved why they are the current and unquestioned kings of college hockey.
The Eagles were amazing down the stretch of this season. ESPN drove that home with this stat.
