Boston College beats rival Boston University 3-1, will face Northeastern for Beanpot title

BOSTON - Mike Szmatula had a goal and two assists, Clay Witt made 27 saves and Northeastern beat Harvard 6-0 Monday night in the opening game of the 62nd annual Beanpot tournament.

Kevin Roy, Dalen Hedges, Colton Saucerman, Braden Pimm and Torin Snydeman also scored for the Huskies (16-8-3), who advanced to the championship round next Monday night against No. 2 Boston College or Boston University.

Northeastern is looking for its fifth Beanpot title — by far the fewest among the four schools — and first since 1988.

Harvard (6-12-3) has lost five of its last six games.

Northeastern broke it open with two second-period goals to make it 4-0.

The nightcap featured four-time defending champion Boston College against 29-time champion Boston University.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
