Frozen Fenway Recap: Providence and Merrimack battle to tie, BC takes down Notre Dame

Written by 

BOSTON -- Round one from the confines of friendly Fenway ended in a gridlock, which is perhaps the best way to describe the pace of the tilt between #4 Providence and unranked Merrimack. 

The game was slow and featured a high volume of shots from the blue line, as the two sides were constantly grappling the outdoor ice. 

After two scoreless periods, Boston native, Mike Collins fired one past Friars goalie, Nick Ellis, to notch a power play goal at the 7:23 mark of the third period. But the lead was short-lived; just over two minutes later, Providence captain, Steven Shamanski, beat a Merrimack defender and then, goalie Rasmus Tirronen, to even things up.

From there, the game went into overtime, where both teams had there chances but neither was able to capitalize and round one at frozen Fenway, ended in a fitting-fashion, a 1-1 tie.

You can click the link below to hear how Collins, Tirronen and Warriors head coach, Mark Dennehy described the experience of playing a hockey game at Fenway Park:



Round two, provided the spark that the 31, 569 fans in attendance for the double-header, were looking for. Less than thirty seconds into the contest, Boston College's Brendan Silk potted his first goal of the season.

Shortly after that, Johnny Gaudreau deked out goalie, Steven Summerhays, off of a beautiful behind-the-back pass from Bill Arnold.

Notre Dame responded with two goals of its own, and from there the two traded blows.

Ultimately, it was none other than Gaudreau, who delivered the knockout punch to the Fighting Irish, earning his second goal of the night and what proved to be the game-winner.

Here is what Gaudreau, Arnold and head coach Jerry York had to say about the game:
