"It's awesome to win MVP, but it's an even greater feeling to win a Beanpot," he said. "I've always dreamed about playing in one, let alone winning one, and just to be able to bring that trophy home will be an awesome feeling."
Despite the loss, BU played well throughout the contest. Millan, who finished as the tournament's top goaltender, finished the night with 44 saves.
"They're a very talented team," Kreider said. "They're one of the, if not the, most talented teams we play all season, and you can tell from their record on the season that they've played us very tough. But we've given them a few good games, too. They're a good team. They'll definitely be there down the road."
Both coaches expressed their pride in Monday night's performance, and showed their respect for the other's tough play. York saw this game as not only a statement for his team, but also for the historic Beanpot tournament.
"For the last few years, people have been talking about if the Beanpot had lost its luster, how are the crowds, you know, where is college hockey in the Boston area. Tonight was a statement," York said. "That place was jammed with fans of college hockey, whether they're associated with BU or BC, Harvard or Northeastern. I think the Beanpot is in good hands. It has been for a long time. It's going to continue, especially with that type of hockey game tonight."
