1:28 3rd period, BC 6-3 That will do it from the Garden. BC just got its sixth goal of the game. Don't think Northeastern is going to be able to come back from this one.

5:23 3rd period, BC 5-3 Gaudreau gets one to put BC up by two goals with about five minutes to go in this one. That's his second of the game, as he matches Kevin Roy. Will one of them get a hat trick?

16:04 3rd period, BC 4-3 There's the first Northeastern goal scored by someone other than Kevin Roy. And it puts the Huskies down by just a goal with a lot of time left to play in this one. The power play goal was scored by Braden Pimm. Roy doesn't even get an assist (though he is +1 on the play).

19:49 3rd period, BC 4-2 BC scored with one second left in the 2nd period. Now Northeastern scores just 11 seconds into the third. It was, of course, Kevin Roy. He now has all five of Northeastern's goals in two games in the Beanpot. And he nearly had a sixth, with that breakaway near the end of the 2nd.

0:01 2nd period, BC 4-1 Proving that every second counts, BC's Steven Whitney just tallied BC's fourth goal of the game. There are just .4 seconds left in the period. That's five goals in 9 minutes, 7 seconds of hockey. Clearly, these teams came to score. (You'll recall that there were 11 goals scored in the consolation game between Harvard and BU.)

1:22 2nd period, BC 3-1 After Roy got stopped on a breakaway by Milner, BC added a third goal to its tally. Patrick Brown got that one.

4:56 2nd period, BC 2-1 So both sides figured out how to score in the second period. This time it was Northeastern's turn, as Kevin Roy got a one-timer by Parker Milner. That's his fourth goal in this year's tournament. Not too shabby for the freshman. If you want to know more, check out this story by John Powers.

7:52 2nd period, BC 2-0 Well, that was quick. The announcer was in the middle of giving the scoring information for the first BC goal when it happened again. The Eagles got this one from Johnny Gaudreau, unassisted. It went under review, but was called good. There were about two Eagles and two Huskies in the goal mouth for the goal, not including the Northeastern goalie. That was 1 minute, 15 seconds for BC to score two goals.

9:07 2nd period, BC 1-0 And there it is, finally. BC had too many good chances not to score eventually. This one came from Bill Arnold, and finally crossed the goal line.

10:05 2nd period, 0-0 Another crossbar for BC. This time by Patrick Mullane. Hit off the crossbar and dropped down, but not across the goal line. They've had a lot of near misses, but haven't been able to convert yet.

14:55 2nd period, 0-0 BC penalty on Michael Matheson for tripping. Can Northeastern take advantage?

16:10 2nd period, 0-0 Another great chance for BC, but Isaac MacLeod hits the crossbar.

End of first, 0-0 Still waiting on a goal in the second game. By this point in the consolation game, we had already seen four go in. There was a near miss by BC with just a minute remaining, but the puck squirted just past the goal. An inch. Maybe.

7:03 1st period, 0-0 Northeastern finally got its first shot on goal more than 10 minutes into the game. Still scoreless. The Garden is nearly full for the finale after being nearly empty in the first game.

13:17 1st period, 0-0 BC has come out strong in this one, leading with four shots to Northeastern's zero. But Northeastern is now on the power play due to an obstruction interference penalty by Bill Arnold, so we'll see if that changes.

Pregame Just back up from the press conferences after the consolation game, which Harvard won 6-4. The Crimson beat BU for the second time this year, the first time they've done that since 1979-1980. For the Terriers, this was just the fifth time in their history that they've finished fourth in the Beanpot. We'll move on to the main event shortly.
