Kessel's shootout goal sinks Bruins

The Maple Leafs claimed a 3-2 shootout win over the Bruins, Saturday night in Toronto. Clinching the shootout for the Leafs was former Bruin Phil Kessel, whose shot on Bruins' goalie Tim Thomas was caught between the pads of the netminder, whose momentum carried him into the goal. Michael Ryder's attempt at extending the shootout failed when his bid clanged off the left post.


Thomas excelled for most of the game -- making 38 saves -- dropped to 13-2-2 on the season.


The Maple Leafs sent the game into overtime when Kris Versteeg swept in from the left side and scored a power-play goal with just 42 seconds left in regulation. The extra man for the Maple Leafs had been made possible because of a Patrice Bergeron holding penalty. Earlier in the third, Gregory Campbell broke deadlock with his third goal of the season, giving the Bruins a 2-1 advantage.


In overtime, Thomas made perhaps the save of the year...

Jackson, Trapani lead BC past UMass

Reggie Jackson and Joe Trapani scored 17 points each and Boston College held off UMass, 76-71, Saturday night in the Tip-Off Classic at Boston Garden.


Josh Southern added 16 points for BC, which improved to 6-2. Anthony Gurley had a game-high 22 points for UMass, which suffered its first loss in eight games this season.


BC never trailed in the game, although UMass cut an 11-point halftime deficit to two points and had multiple chances to tie the score or take the lead. UMass was last within a possession at 70-67 with just over a minute remaining. But Southern got free for a layup, and after a UMass miss, Trapani snuck free for another layup, and the game was out of reach.


The Eagles return to action Wednesday night when they host Providence.
