  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Men's Ice Hockey: November 16, 2005

Boston College's home winning streak against Harvard, which had extended back to the late 1970s, was finally snapped by the Crimson. Sparked by a power play score by freshman phenom Nathan Gerbe, the Eagles battled back from a 4-0 deficit to come within one goal with minutes remaining, but an empty-netter sealed the Eagles' fate last night at Kelley Rink.

Gerbe recently earned Hockey East's Rookie of the Week honors after scoring both BC goals in a 2-1 win at Vermont on Sunday. Through seven games, the star from Oxford, Michigan ranks second on the team in goals and third in points.

The Eagles will look to rebound (and avenge a frustrating early season tie) against Northeastern this Saturday, Nov. 19. The game will be televised by CN8, which is great news for Eagles fans across the country because a live video feed of the game will be available here.

Alumni Notes

Former Boston College star Ryan Murphy recently scored his first professional goal for the AHL's Manchester Monarchs.

The Springfield Falcons have signed winger David Spina, another member of the Class of 2005 Eagles. Spina was previously with the ECHL's South Carolina Stingrays, where he was second among league rookies with seven goals.

There's also a nice feature on Brian Gionta, who once scored an abusurd five goals in a single period of hockey. This recent article takes the unique and news-breaking angle that Gionta is short, but still dominates the sport. As Devils center Scott Gomez said, Gionta "is a little guy who plays like a big guy."
