Game 248

On January 8, the Boston College men’s hockey team played rival Boston University at Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, in front of 38,472 fans (who were serenaded before the game by the Boston College Band, which played the familiar 8th-inning tune, “Sweet Caroline”). It was the teams’ second meeting of the season—in December the Eagles defeated the defending national champion Terriers 4–1 at BU’s Agganis Arena—and their 248th contest overall. With snow falling and the temperature at 21 degrees Fahrenheit, the Eagles, national champions in 2008, fell behind 3–0 before mounting a comeback and pulling within a goal. Boston College had 13 shots in the third period, but the Eagles ultimately lost by a score of 3–2.
