WORCESTER, Mass. – Chris Kreider scored twice and Parker Milner stopped 20 shots to lead top-seeded Boston College to a 2-0 win against Air Force on Saturday in the NCAA Northeast Regional.

The Eagles (30-10-1) are looking to take a familiar route to the Frozen Four and another NCAA championship. Three times in the past 11 years they’ve advanced from Worcester and captured the NCAA title, winning it in 2001,’08 and ’10.

It was the 16th straight win for the top-ranked Eagles.

BC will face Minnesota-Duluth, the defending national champion, in the regional final tonight.

The Falcons (21-11-7), outplayed for long stretches of the game, kept it close thanks to solid defensive play in front of goaltender Jason Torf, who made 33 saves.

It was the first time Air Force was shut out this season.

Kreider made it 1-0 7:39 into the game on a nice feed from Kevin Hayes, who swung around the net and slipped a pass in front. Kreider one-timed it past Torf. His power-play goal with 1:21 left in regulation sealed the win.

Milner made a solid save about a minute after Kreider’s score, making a pad save on Scott Holm’s backhander from the slot.

Holm fanned as he attempted to collect the rebound.

BC has allowed two or fewer goals 15 times during its winning streak.

The Eagles controlled play during long stretches for most of the opening period, but Air Force made a brief flurry late.

The Eagles, the tourney’s overall No. 1 seed, captured the Hockey East regular season and tournament championships. Air Force did the same in its league — the Atlantic Hockey Association.
