Almeida’s power-play score came at 3:27 of the extra session, off a rebound of a Tommy Cross shot.

The Eagles (16-10-1, 12-7-1 Hockey East) used a two-goal third period Friday night to rally past the Wildcats, 4-3.

Parker Milner made 31 stops for the Eagles.

UNH’s Mike Borisenok scored an equalizer with 1:12 left in the second, after the Wildcats killed a five-on-three power play, their final of three successful penalty kills in the period.

Freshman Casey DeSmith turned away a career-high 34 shots in defeat for UNH (9-13-2, 6-11-1), which has dropped four one-goal games, including three in overtime in January.

BC led, 2-1, after the first period on goals by Almeida and Chris Kreider, which sandwiched a power-play strike by New Hampshire’s Brett Kostolansky.
