With the 59th annual Boston Beanpot tournament approaching, the BC Eagles were able to remind the BU Terriers who the current champions were in last week’s 3-2 victory in front of the 6,150 in attendance at the Agganis Arena. The Eagles have won all three contests against Hockey East opponents so far this season.
“We really had an excellent start, our first period was one of our best all year,” said BC coach Jerry York. “I thought the goaltenders were strong and we each controlled a period. They controlled the second, and the third was just back and forth.” BC and BU will face off in the Beanpot Semifinals Monday, February 7th at the TD Garden.
The Northeastern Huskies and Harvard Crimson will also matchup that day with February 14th reserved for the second round. The Huskies currently hold the advantage in light of their mid-January 3-0 win over Harvard. Find the best Boston Beanpot ticket deals with us at AceTicket.com!
The BC Eagles relied heavily on goalie and tournament MVP John Muse for 31 saves as the offense took control with 4 goals to Boston University‘s 3 to claim their 15th Beanpot championship yesterday at the TD Garden. So far this season Muse is 11-6-2 with a .912 save percentage.
“If there’s one thing about John, he’s a competitor. He wants to win. He wants to get those games, he wants to play those minutes,” said BC captain Matt Price. “He did a great job, especially coming off that surgery. He worked really hard.” Barry Almeida solidified the victory with a game-winning score early in the third period. Steve Whitney, Carl Sneep and Chris Kreider notched the other three goals for the Eagles.
The Northeastern Huskies were able to finish strong in the consolation match, easily controlling Harvard 4-1. Wade MacLeod produced two goals in the third period to give his team their 13th win of the season. Rawlings made 27 saves that included 14 in the second period. “The one common thread that is visible when he’s on his game is how aggressive he is and how square to the puck he is,” said Northeastern coach Greg Cronin. “There were very few second shots because he was really controlling the rebounds so well.”
The Boston University Terriers are scheduled to matchup against the Boston College Eagles in the 2010 Beanpot finale following Monday night’s first round in Bruins territory.

Despite the mismatch, the Terriers were able to notch the 2-1 victory to defend their title.
