Boston College tops Wisconsin 5-0 for hockey title

DETROIT (AP) - Cam Atkinson scored twice, John Muse made 20 saves and Boston College won the NCAA hockey championship for the second time in three years with a 5-0 victory against Wisconsin on Saturday night.

The Eagles scored four times in the third period, with Atkinson and Chris Kreider scoring 2:02 apart early in the period.

Atkinson scored again midway through the period.

A world indoor attendance record was set for hockey with a crowd of 37,592 at the home of the NFL's Detroit Lions.

Boston College won its fourth title and third since 2001, best in the nation over the last 10 years.

The Eagles' top rival, Boston University, took home the championship last year, meaning the trophy has stayed on Commonwealth Avenue for three straight seasons.
