BOSTON - Despite three third-period goals from freshman Logan Hutsko, including two in the final 2:34 of regulation to force overtime for No. 18 Boston College at 4-4, the Eagles dropped a back and forth contest with Harvard, 5-4, Monday evening in the consolation game of the 66th Beanpot Tournament at TD Garden.


No. 18 Boston College - 4 / Harvard - 5 (OT)


TD Garden / Boston


No. 18 Boston College (14-13-3 / 14-6-0 HEA) / Harvard (11-10-4 / 9-6-3 ECAC)


• Monday's setback vs. Harvard Monday night at TD Garden marked only the eighth time in the 66-year history of the Beanpot where the Eagles finished with an 0-2 record in Tournament play. The contest marked only the second time overall and the first since the 1974 and 1975 Beanpots where the maroon and gold finished back-to-back years in fourth place. Boston College's all-time record in Beanpot play moves to 78-54, while its record against Harvard in the first two Monday's of February falls to 28-14.

• Freshman winger Logan Hutsko netted his first-career hat trick on Monday night, becoming the first Eagle since JD Dudek to accomplish the feat. Dudek tallied three goals at UConn on November 22, 2016 in a 5-2 win.

• Because Hutsko's goals all occurred in the third period, it counts as a natural hat trick. The last time an Eagle scored a natural hat trick occurred on Nov. 4, 2016 when Austin Cangelosi turned the trick at Maine.

• Entering Monday's Beanpot final between Northeastern & Boston University, Hutsko's three goals Monday night were the most in a single Beanpot Tournament since Northeastern's Kevin Roy tallied five goals in the 2013 Beanpot Tournament.

• The three third period goals notched by the Eagles' offense marked the fifth time this season where Boston College has scored three or more goals in a period. With Christopher Brown's second-period tally, the Eagles collected their fifth shorthanded goal of the season and their first since a January 14 matinee against New Hampshire, a 5-2 win on home ice.

• The Eagles finished their 2017-18 regular season series with Harvard with a mark of 0-1-1. Earlier this season, Boston College skated to a 4-4 draw against Harvard at Kelley Rink.

• After missing the last six games to injury, Kevin Lohan returned to the lineup Monday night, recording an assist and a +1 rating on the evening.


FIRST GOAL (1-0 - Harvard) - FIRST PERIOD - Lewis Zerter-Gossage - 13:38 - POWER PLAY
Less than 20 seconds into its first power play opportunity of the game, Harvard forward Lewis Zerter-Gossage found the back of the Eagles' net after he tapped in a shot from just outside the crease that beat BC netminder Ryan Edquist stick side. Ty Pelton-Byce and Adam Fox were credited with the assists.

SECOND GOAL (1-1) - SECOND PERIOD - Christopher Brown - 17:49 - SHORT- HANDED
Junior captain Christopher Brown tallied the Eagles first point of the 2018 Beanpot Tournament with just over two minutes remaining in the second period after notching his second shorthanded goal of the season. After the forward stole the puck in the defensive zone, Brown bested two defenders charging up the right side of the ice and fired a shot that found the top corner of the net. It was Brown's first unassisted goal this season.

THIRD GOAL (2-1 - Harvard) - THIRD PERIOD - John Marino - 17:49 - EVEN STRENGTH
Crimson defender John Marino gave his squad the 2-1 advantage at the 4:22 mark of the third period on the rebound following a saved shot off the stick of teammate Henry Howlby. Howlby's initial shot on goal was saved by Edquist, but the puck bounced front and Marino was able to knock in the rebound before a defender could intervene.

FOURTH GOAL (3-1 - Harvard) - THIRD PERIOD - Victor Dombrovskiy - 6:34 - POWER PLAY
For the second time this evening, Harvard capitalized on the power play when Victor Dombrovskiy pounded a shot against Edquist that slipped underneath his pads, extending the Crimson lead to two goals. With the Crimson in the offensive zone, Ty Pelton-Byce slid the puck from atop the circle down to Dombrovskiy, who was standing to the right of the net. Adam Fox had the secondary assist.

FIFTH GOAL (3-2 - Harvard) - THIRD PERIOD - Logan Hutsko - 7:01 - POWER PLAY
Less than 30 seconds after Harvard built its lead to two, Boston College cut into the deficit when Logan Hutsko deflected a Kevin Lohan blast from the far point to bring the Boston College back within one. Michael Kim received the second helper with a dish from the far slot.

SIXTH GOAL (4-2 - Harvard) - THIRD PERIOD - Jack Donato - 12:02 - EVEN STRENGTH
Harvard's Jack Donato regained the two-goal lead for the Crimson at the 12:02 mark of the third period when the forward's wrister skidded through the pads of Edquist off a feed from Mitchell Perrault and Eddie Ellis in front of the crease.

SEVENTH GOAL (4-3 Harvard) - THIRD PERIOD - Logan Hutsko - 17:26 - POWER PLAY
With the Eagles on the power play and the goalie pulled for an extra skater, Hutsko cut into the team's deficit once again. Following a Harvard turnover, Julius Mattila found brother Jesper Mattila, who fired on net and despite an initial save by the Crimson netminder, Hutsko knocked in the rebound to bring the game back to within a goal.

EIGHTH GOAL (4-4) - THIRD PERIOD - Logan Hutsko - 18:24 - EVEN STRENGTH
With the extra attacker remaining on the ice after head coach Jerry York pulled Edquist, Hutsko continued his third period theatrics when he once again found the back of the net, this time on a helper from teammate Casey Fitzgerald. After Fitzgerald's shot was saved by Cameron Gornet, Hutsko capitalized in similar fashion on his tally one minute prior by knocking in the rebound to even the game at 4-4 a side.

NINTH GOAL (5-4 Harvard) - OVERTIME - Seb Lloyd - 2:43 - EVEN STRENGTH
Harvard regained the lead for good at 2:43 of the sudden death overtime period. With Harvard in the offensive zone, Lewis Zerter-Gossage fired a pass from the top of the point down low to teammate Jake Horton, who flung it across the front of the net to a waiting Seb Lloyd. Lloyd's shot beat Edquist as Harvard took the game, 5-4.
