Last night just wasn’t good. The Terriers looked like a shell of themselves against a desperate Boston College team who was able to find the emotion to make a consolation game mean something.
The Terriers will head into the consolation game at Boston College to compete for third place in the 44th Women’s Beanpot in a matchup with the Harvard Crimson (7-16-3, 6-11-3 ECAC).
The No.5 Boston University men’s hockey team (20-8-0, 14-4-0 Hockey East) fell 4-2 to the Boston College Eagles (10-12-6, 5-8-5 HE) in the smaller stage of the second Monday in February, the first back-to-back loss for BU this season.
For the first time in the tournament’s 70 iterations, the Terriers and Eagles will compete against each other in the consolation round. Puck drop is set for 4:30pm at TD Garden.
BU generated an offensive onslaught in the final minutes in Saturday’s showdown with Boston College, but it wasn’t enough. The Eagles (18-12-1, 15-10-0 Hockey East) survived, eking out a 2-1 win over the Terriers (10-16-3, 9-12-3 HEA) at Walter Brown Arena.
For the third time this season, the Boston University women’s hockey team (10-16-3, 9-12-3 Hockey East) will face cross-town rivals the Boston College Eagles (17-12-1, 14-10-0 HE) at Walter Brown Arena on Saturday.
The worst thing the Terriers did on Monday was score. Injecting a comatose Dog Pound with all that false hope so late in the game.
The Boston University Women’s Hockey Team (10-16-3, 9-13-3 Hockey East), riding a seven-game point streak, looked to carry their momentum against one of the toughest opponents in all of college hockey.
Having been unbeaten in their last six games, the Boston University women’s hockey (10-15-3, 9-12-3 Hockey East) team looks to capitalize on their momentum in a Beanpot battle against the No. 5 Northeastern University (25-2-1, 21-2-1 HE) Huskies.
The Boston University men’s hockey team has fileted opposing defenses with speed and shiftiness all season long. On Monday night, Northeastern unearthed an antidote: unrelenting physicality.
