The Huskies extended their lead to 3-0 early in the third period when forward Lincoln Griffin roofed a backhanded shot over Eagles goaltender Jonathan Woll.

But BC cut the lead to 3-1 two minutes later when Eagles leading scorer David Cotton lofted a backhanded shot over the right pad of Northeastern goalie Cayden Primeau.

The Eagles were controlling possession in the middle period—Cotton was in the middle of everything—but they entered the third with a two-goal deficit thanks to a virtuoso move down the right side by Tyler Madden, the freshman whose overtime goal won the semifinal over Boston University last week.

This time, Madden beat two Eagles and then crashed the net in an extraordinary diversion that enabled Matt Thomson to find Patrick Schule for a slap shot past Woll.

Within a half-minute, the Huskies were threatening to put it out of reach when Woll succeeded in snuffing out a breakaway by Lincoln Griffin. Based on Cayden Primeau’s goaltending, however, Northeastern had to be confident with a 2-0 lead after 40 minutes.
