Gaudreau has 3 goals, 3 assists for Boston College
Question of the Day
Even Montgomery, who Friday compared Gaudreau to Detroit Red Wings star Pavel Datsyuk, had to be surprised by Gaudreau’s performance in Boston College’s 6-2 victory Saturday in the NCAA Northeast Regional semifinal.
Gaudreau, who had a 31-game points streak snapped by Notre Dame two weeks ago in the Hockey East tournament, Gaudreau scored 25 seconds into the game, went on to his first college hat trick and also had three assists to match his career high in points and come within a point of matching the NCAA tournament record.
UMass-Lowell or Minnesota State-Mankato.
“Their top line was phenomenal tonight,” Montgomery said. “They made high-end plays and there’s a reason that those guys will end up playing at a higher level and making a lot of money.”
The Eagles, upset two weeks ago by Notre Dame in the quarterfinals of the Hockey East tournament, were coming off their second long layoff in the past month. But any chance of this team being rusty was quickly erased by Gaudreau and his linemates, who scored all six goals as BC built a 6-0 second-period lead.
BC is trying to win its third national title in the last five years, its fifth of the 2000s.
Gaudreau, drafted by the Calgary Flames, came into the game with 15 two-goal games, seven this season. He capped his hat trick 8:13 into the second period.
He scored his first goal wide open in front, the second by sweeping his way to a wraparound and the third from behind the net banking it in off goalie Sam Brittain.
“I was kind of excited to play in the game and I didn’t want to send Kevin and Billy out of their BC careers without a good run for this championship,” Gaudreau, a junior, said about his senior linemates. “That’s kind of what’s pushing me, is trying to help them get a national championship.
The line has been together for 24 games - and has 122 points
