Boston College Wins 5th Straight Beanpot
BOSTON (AP) — Patrick Brown tipped in a shot from the point with 5½ minutes to play for the tiebreaking goal and added another in the final minute, lifting Boston College to its school-record fifth straight Beanpot championship with a 4-1 win over Northeastern on Monday night.
Boston College (22-4-3) extended its unbeaten streak to 15 games (14-0-1) on the same day it took over the No. 1 spot in the national rankings.
Johnny Gaudreau, the leading scorer in the country, extended his nation-best point streak to 24 games with an empty-net goal and an assist. Kevin Hayes had the other goal for BC.
John Stevens scored for Northeastern (16-10-3), and Clay Witt made 37 saves.
The tournament pits the Boston area’s four Division I hockey programs against each other on the first two Mondays in February.
