WORCESTER -- In a men's hockey game that featured a record 16 goals, there are bound to be a few marks set.

In Boston College's 9-7 win against Yale in the NCAA Northeast Regional final tonight, the teams combined to score the most goals ever in an NCAA Tournament regional game. That's just the beginning.

--BC's nine goals tied a mark for most goals scored by one team in a regional game. It has happened three times. Minnesota was the last team do reach the mark in a 9-2 win against Mercyhurst in 2003.

-- BC sophomore forward Jimmy Hayes scored back-to-back goals in 23 seconds in the third period, recording the fastest time for consecutive goals by one player in a regional. It was the fifth fastest in NCAA history.

--Yale forward Mark Arcobello collected six points (three goals, three assists), the second most points all-time in an NCAA Tournament game. He is tied with nine other players who have hit that mark.

-- Yale's seven goals were the most scored by a losing team in a regional game. The previous record was six in Northern Michigan's 7-6 loss to Michigan in 1992.
