The Boston College Eagles have been skidding of late with losses in four of their last five. Playing struggling Vermont on home ice Friday, BC put an emphatic stop to the slide with a 4-1 win.
Steven Whitney helped create some distance between the Eagles and the Catamounts with this awfully impressive goal.
After getting knocked down by a check, Whitney made a full 360-degree spin on his backside. Michael Sit made a somewhat risky pass to Whitney who was still on his knees. Whitney had the presence of mind to collect it and absolutely wired it from the kneeling position.
The goal made it 3-1 and gave Whitney his team-leading 16th of the season. That mark currently ties him for second in the nation.
Whitney is undrafted, meaning he’ll be available as an unrestricted free agent upon the conclusion of his season at Boston College.
