It was an emotional night for University of Maine captain Jakub Sirota on Friday as his Black Bears faced Boston College in a crucial playoff-related Hockey East game.

His grandfather had died earlier in the day.

But Sirota put in an outstanding performance, including a crucial power play goal late in the second half, and the Black Bears triumphed 6-3 in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd at the Alfond Arena.
