BOSTON - The No. 3 Boston University men's ice hockey team never trailed en route to a 3-1 victory over No. 7 Boston College in the opening round of the 65th annual Beanpot on Monday night at TD Garden.


Final Score: #3/3 Boston University 3, #7/7 Boston College 1
Records: BU (19-7-2), BC (18-10-2)
Location: TD Garden - Boston, Mass.


- BU dominated the first period, outshooting the Eagles, 12-2, and scoring the lone goal of the frame just 4:29 into the proceedings. Freshman Patrick Harper skated up the left wing, circled around the BC cage and fired a shot on target that Joe Woll (25 saves) stopped. Sophomore Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson knocked home the rebound, however, for his 11th goal of the season.

- Freshman Chad Krys made it 2-0 with the Terriers' lone power-play goal of the contest at the 3:32 mark of the second stanza, with sophomore Bobo Carpenter and freshman Dante Fabbro both assisting on the play.

- BC cut the deficit in half minutes later, but freshman Clayton Keller answered back with a shorthanded strike at the 11:06 mark of the middle period. Sophomore Charlie McAvoy collected a puck in his own zone and eventually got it to Keller, who deftly defied a defender and slotted home his team-leading 14th goal of the campaign.

- BC took four penalties over the final 20 minutes, hampering its chance at a comeback as the Terriers held on for the victory.


- Harvard defeated Northeastern, 4-3, in the first semifinal and for the first time since 1998, BU and Harvard will face off in the Beanpot title game.

- The Terriers will be aiming for their 31st Beanpot crown while the Crimson is in search of its 11th and first since 1993.

- BU completed a regular-season sweep of the Eagles for the first time since the 1994-95 campaign.

- The Terriers' snapped a stretch of six straight losses to BC in Beanpot games with BU's last win over the Eagles in Beanpot play coming in the 2007 championship game.

- Keller extended his point streak to 15 games (11g, 14a), which is the longest by a Terrier since Jay Pandolfo also put together a 15-game streak during the 1995-96 season.

- Keller now has four shorthanded goals on the season, tying him with Union's Mike Vecchione for first in the nation.

- BU is now tied with Union for the most wins in the country with 19.


- Prior to the Terriers' meeting with No. 4 Harvard in next Monday's Beanpot title game, BU will head to No. 9/10 UMass Lowell on Friday night.
