The teams then played two 10-minute overtimes, with BC getting off three shots in the first period to no avail.
In the shootout, Rutgers converted four of five shots and the Eagles hit on just three.
BC, the No. 4 seed in the tournament, outshot Rutgers 17-10 and had six shots on goalie Kevin McMullen. Midfielder Kyle Bekkar led BC with five shots, two on goal. Justin Luthy made two saves for the Eagles.
