prospect Bill Arnold
put the finishing touches on another fantastic finish in the 60th Beanpot final Monday when he scored with 6.4 seconds left in overtime to give Boston College a 3-2 victory against Boston University in front of 17,565 fans at TD Garden in Boston.
The victory gave the Eagles (19-10-1), ranked No. 3 in the NCAA, its third straight Beanpot, matching its run of three consecutive crowns from 1963-65. Second-ranked Boston University (17-10-1), which has won a record 29 Beanpots, last celebrated a tournament victory in 2009.
"This was college hockey at its finest," said Boston College coach Jerry York, who was a sophomore when the Eagles completed their last previous Beanpot three-peat in 1965. "It had all the makings of a classic college hockey game, and it unfolded just like that."
Boston College now has 16 Beanpot titles.
