Blues Prospect Shines in NCAA West Regional
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Blues draft pick Jaden Schwartz had two goals and two assists playing on what might be his future home ice, helping Colorado College whip top seed Boston College 8-4 in the semifinals of the NCAA West Regional in St. Louis Friday night.
Schwartz’ older brother and linemate Rylan Schwartz added a goal and two assists for Colorado College (23-18-3), which ended Boston College’s eight-game winning streak and will play Michigan in the final Saturday night with a Frozen Four berth at stake.
Boston College goalie John Muse, who had been 8-0 with a 1.95 goals-against average in NCAA tournament play and starred on a pair of title teams last year and 2008, was pulled after two periods with the Eagles (30-8-1) trailing 7-2. Cam Atkinson and Barry Almeida scored in the third to narrow the gap to three for the losers.
