Arnold's OT goal gives BC third straight Beanpot title

Tuesday, 02.14.2012 / 10:38 AM / On Campus

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Calgary Flames 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.

Beanpot rivalry has big implications for BC, BU

Sunday, 02.12.2012 / 8:44 PM / On Campus

Michael Blinn - NHL.com Staff Writer

Hockey, rivalry, bragging rights and beans. It doesn’t get much more Boston than that combination.

The Beanpot is one of hockey’s most exclusive tournaments, as its four participants -- Boston College, Boston University, Harvard, and Northeastern -- have been the same for 60 years. While it's a pure Boston spectacle that means a lot within city limits, this year's results can have much further-reaching implications.

Minnesota goes for NCAA-best 20th win vs. Denver

Minnesota (19-9-1) at Denver (15-9-4)
Friday, 10 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network


Denver: Early on, it looked as if Denver was headed for a roller-coaster season that included some dominant performances (a 10-2 win over Minnesota State) and some not-so-dominant ones (a 7-2 loss to Michigan Tech). After going winless against Minnesota-Duluth in early November, the Pioneers started to put it all together. Wins over Colorado College, Nebraska-Omaha, Princeton, Bemidji State, St. Cloud State, Union and Air Force reasserted them as a dominant force. A loss to Alabama-Huntsville to start off the new year was cause for concern, though the response was a five-game winning streak. Last weekend's series against Colorado College ended with a loss and a tie, and you can bet Denver has their response ready -- taking two from Minnesota could vault them as high as second in the WCHA, a climb that can start on Friday.


Special Valentine's Day for Niagara's Arnold

It's going to be a special Valentine's Day for the family of Niagara sophomore Scott Arnold.

Arnold was not only spared from the possible ravages of cancer and the premature end of his hockey career, but has come back as one of this season's NCAA's poster boys for perseverance and dedication to the game.

After a successful freshman season, Arnold spent mid-summer in two National Hockey League development camps with New Jersey and Calgary before the frightening diagnosis of testicular cancer came shortly after.

He underwent treatment to eradicate the cancer, including removal of one testicle, promising head coach Dave Burkholder that he would be in the lineup a little more than two months later when Niagara began its season against defending national runner-up Michigan.


Boston College ready to start late-season roll

Boston College (17-10-1) at Vermont (5-21-1)
Friday, 7:30 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network


Boston College: Just like death and taxes, it's a guarantee that Boston College will ice a top-flight hockey team. They opened the season with an impressive romp at the Ice Breaker tournament, taking home the title there, and despite a loss against Denver, the Eagles didn't miss a beat, winning their next six. They've racked up non-conference wins over Michigan State, North Dakota, Yale and Michigan Tech along the way, but their biggest challenge has come in Hockey East play. Rival Boston University and resurgent Maine have proved to be the biggest challenge for BC, as they've both taken two of three in their regular season series, though the Eagles have swept New Hampshire and Northeastern, and won series with Lowell and Massachusetts. A win over Vermont would ensure that BC won't be swept in league play this season, though the Eagles' first-round win in the Beanpot (which counts as non-conference play) -- a 7-1 beatdown of Northeastern -- could set them up for failure if they get caught looking ahead to the tournament's championship game against BU on Monday.

Madigan comes 360 as coach in 60th Beanpot

BOSTON -- Not many things -- as the proverb goes -- are worth a pile of beans.

At 60 years running, however, the most valuable is likely the mythical stash inside the Beanpot Trophy.

Awarded the second Monday each February in Beantown to the winner of college hockey's most celebrated in-season tournament among Boston College, Boston University, Harvard and Northeastern, there are only a few new and unique facts to be established since Harvard kicked it off with a 7-2 win over BU in 1953.

Cornell looks to get back on track against surging RPI

Wednesday, 02.01.2012 / 10:59 AM / On Campus

Michael Blinn - NHL.com Staff Writer

Cornell (11-6-4) at Rennselaer (7-18-1)
Friday, 7 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network


Cornell: Since taking over behind the bench in 1995-96, Mike Schafer has turned the Big Red into a model of consistency. They've never won less than 12 times in a season, and with 11 wins already, they aim to keep that trend going against RPI. They've taken impressive wins at Yale, Harvard and Colorado College, and at home over Princeton. Season series sweeps of Dartmouth and Quinnipiac have also helped them climb toward the top of the ECAC standings. A non-conference Thanksgiving loss to Boston University at Madison Square Garden certainly stung, as did last weekend's sweep at the hands of upstart foe Colgate, though it was the first time all season they've dropped back-to-back games. It's safe to say they're still smarting and will look to avoid a third-straight loss. Expect Schafer's crew to send an early message on Friday that they're willing to battle it out.

Home cooking keeps Cornell goalie clicking

Wednesday, 01.25.2012 / 2:53 PM / On Campus

Bob Snow - NHL.com Correspondent

Cornell goaltender Andy Iles (pronounced "Isles") wanted to go away to college to develop his trade of protecting the 24 square feet of prized real estate in every hockey program.

Just how far away did he go?

Don't count on the Iles family racking up many frequent-flyer miles or Marriott points, given Iles' final decision two years ago about his NCAA landing site.

"My house is 8-10 minutes from campus," Iles told NHL.com Sunday night after dinner with his folks. "Grew up here in Ithaca."

Harvard, Yale look to reverse fortunes on NBCSP

Yale (8-9-2) vs. Harvard (4-6-8)
Friday, 7:30 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network


Yale: A win in the Ivy Shootout tournament and a 5-1-1 record to open the season had everyone thinking the Bulldogs were on track for another shot at the ECAC title and NCAA postseason. Consecutive shutouts over Colgate, RPI, and Union were demonstrative that Yale was primed to play both ends of the rink. However, non-conference losses to Sacred Heart, Boston College, and Massachusetts, as well as dropping league games to Quinnipiac, Clarkson, RPI, and Union have left the Bulldogs with an 4-8-1 record in their last 13, and in a tie for ninth in the ECAC, though they sit just eight points out of the top spot. It will certainly be a climb back up into the league’s elite, and a win over Harvard -- one point ahead and tied for sixth - would be a huge step on the way back to normalcy.

I think you always have to look internally before you look externally to see, 'Do we have these players within our organization?' And I think we do.
