BC closed it out with 1:28 left when Mullane scored an empty-netter, capping the seniors’ perfect Beanpot record.
For the Huskies, it was a valiant effort and something they can build on for the rest of the season as they hunt for a playoff spot.
“I liked obviously the way we battled in the third period,’’ said second-year coach Jim Madigan, whose team is 8-14-3 overall. “For me, the story for our team was how we battled in the third period when that puck dropped. Our guys, they just went all out. I said to our seniors I’m proud of the way they played and how hard they worked. I felt sorry for them that they didn’t get the opportunity to win a Beanpot championship.’’
