Boston College wins 5th straight Beanpot with 4-1 victory over Northeastern

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.

John Stevens scored for Northeastern (16-10-3), and Clay Witt made 37 saves.

The tournament pits the Boston area's four Division I hockey programs against each other on the first two Mondays in February.

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.
