|BC turns away Northeastern to win Beanpot||02.11.13 at 10:12 pm ET|
Northeastern made Boston College work harder than the score implies, but the Eagles skated away with the Beanpot championship with a 6-3 win Monday night at TD Garden. It was BC’s fourth consecutive Beanpot title.
Johnny Gaudreau scored twice, including a finish off a nice pass from Michael Matheson late in the third period to give BC a two-goal lead after NU had fought back from a 4-1 deficit to make it a game.
Northeastern’s Kevin Roy was named tournament MVP after scoring twice against BC to go with his hat trick in last Monday’s semifinal vs. Boston University.
BC coach Jerry York said he’s not surprised to see this senior class graduate with four straight Beanpot wins, but that it’s not the only class that could have pulled it off.
“We’ve had some very, very good teams,” York said, citing the late-1990s squads featuring players like Brian Gionta as an example. “Luck plays a certain amount [of a role] in winning this many Beanpots in a row for sure, and I think our players understand that.”
