WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) -- 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 the winner of the late semifinal game between defending champion Minnesota-Duluth-Maine in the regional final on Sunday night.
