With 6.4 seconds remaining in the extra session, Boston College (19-10-1) sophomore forward Bill Arnold roofed a shot from the right slot, beating Boston University (17-10-1) senior goaltender Kieran Millan for a dramatic 3-2 overtime win in the 60th installment of the Beanpot at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass. The game was brilliantly played [...]
The Boston University Terriers (17-8-1) and Boston College Eagles (17-10-1) each advanced to next Monday’s Beanpot final, dispatching the Harvard Crimson (7-7-9) and Northeastern Huskies (11-12-3) respectively at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass.
The last three years, the champion of the Beanpot has gone on to win the national championship (BC in ’08, BU in ’09, BC in ’10). I think it’s safe to say, though, if Northeastern managed to win their first Beanpot since 1988 on Monday night that streak would be broken (ouch). Boston College, the [...]
The Beanpot college hockey tournament is a Boston institution, an annual tournament where the four biggest hockey schools in the Boston area face off. This year’s final takes place Monday night, featuring Boston College against Northeastern for the championship, while Boston University faces Harvard in the consolation game.
Boston College built a 4-1 lead and turned back BU’s two goal rally before the Terriers could tie the game to capture the school’s 15th Beanpot Tournament Championship, and second in three years. BC and BU have now split four games this season in four different venues with BC winning at BU and at the [...]
BC and BU will meet in next week’s 58th Beanpot final after each advanced Monday night by beating Harvard and Northeastern respectively. The Terriers and Eagles will meet in the final for the sixth time in last seven tourneys that the feat was possible (excluding the years when BC-BU is played on the first week). [...]
The seasons of the Terriers and Eagles are on opposite trajectories now. BU had a very tough start, but is rebounding lately and has now beaten their arch-rival in the last two meetings. They won the Fenway Classic and took out the Eagles in Chestnut Hill in a 5-4 overtime game. Meanwhile, BC seems to [...]
No. 1 ranked Boston University knocked off a pesky Harvard team in a 4-3 thriller in the first game of the Beanpot. Jason Lawrence scored with about 1:30 to go on the power play to give BU the lead. Northeastern breezed past BC 6-1 in the nightcap to make for a big matchup for the [...]
It’s that time of year again. The first two weeks in February mean one thing, THE BEANPOT, college hockey’s best mini-tournament. I will be live blogging the BU-Harvard game starting at 5pm today. BU – admittedly my Alma mater – is looking for its 29th Beanpot and comes in as the new No. 1 ranked [...]
For the first time in 14 years, the Boston University Terriers will not participate in the 56th annual Beanpot Final, which will be played next Monday. My Terriers lost to the No. 9 Boston College Eagles 4-3 in overtime on an overtime goal by Nathan Gerbe. Gerbe was skating toward the net when he slapped [...]
