The Huskies are currently ranked No. 12 in the USCHO poll, but have lost three of their past four contests, falling to Massachusetts before being swept by Providence last weekend.
The Eagles conceded a pair of rebound goals in the final two frames of Monday evening’s first round Beanpot contest, ultimately suffering a 3-0 shutout at the hands of Northeastern.
Despite outshooting the Huskies, 37-32, BC suffered a 3-0 blanking in the first round of Beanpot Tournament, its first shutout loss in the annual competition since 1988.
Hours after the Eagles upset Duke in basketball, Kelley Rink couldn’t recreate the magic, as men’s hockey was out from the start against conference rival Northeastern.
For the better portion of three periods, BC contained Northeastern’s sixth ranked offense in Monday night’s Beanpot consolation game. But two Husky goals in the final 43 seconds spelled doom for the Eagles.
With victory ripped out of their hands in the game’s final seconds, the Eagles will walk away empty-handed from Beanpot for the first time since Jerry York became the head coach.
