The Air Force Falcons put together another tough game against a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Hockey Tournament, but the Academy was unable to defeat the No. 1 overall seed Boston College Eagles on Saturday afternoon. Boston College's Chris Kreider was the star of the game, scoring both goals in the 2-0 game.
Kreider scored a little over seven minutes into the first period of the game and then netted the second goal on the power play late in the game. The Falcons had trouble trying to match the Eagles with shots on net, putting up just 20 on Parker Milner. Jason Torf, though, faced 34 shots and made 32 saves.
Boston College now waits for the winner between the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs, last year's Frozen Four champions, and the Maine Black Bears. They play at 5:30 p.m. MT on Saturday. The Northeast Region final is set for Sunday night at 6:00 p.m. MT.
