BOSTON - Patrick Brown tipped in a shot from the point with 5 1/2 minutes to play for the tiebreaking goal and added another in the final minute, lifting Boston College to its school-record fifth straight Beanpot championship with a 4-1 win over Northeastern on Monday night.
Boston College (22-4-3) extended its unbeaten streak to 15 games (14-0-1) on the same day it took over the No. 1 spot in the national rankings.
Johnny Gaudreau, the leading scorer in the country, extended his nation-best point streak to 24 games with an empty-net goal and an assist. Kevin Hayes had the other goal for BC.
You can be hyped all you want, but his game will speak for itself. He's obviously going to be a great player so we've got to make sure we keep an eye on him. Whether it's his first game or his 1,000th game, our job is to take care of business, shut him down.
