Terriers Claim Beanpot

BU beats Northeastern 5-2 in final at Garden

| From Commonwealth | By BU Athletics

The men’s ice hockey team captured the 2009 Beanpot — BU’s twenty-ninth title in the fifty-seven-year history of the tournament — in a 5-2 victory over the Northeastern University Huskies on February 9 at the TD Banknorth Garden.

Colby Cohen (CAS’11) gave the Terriers an early lead in the first period, and BU stayed ahead on a goal from Nick Bonino (CAS’11) in the second. Bonino was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.

BU reached the title game by virtue of its 4-3 come-from-behind victory over Harvard in the first round, on February 2. Northeastern posted a 6-1 victory over Boston College in the other semifinal.

The title game marked the 200th meeting between the crosstown rivals, but Northeastern hasn’t claimed the trophy since 1988, when it posted a 6-3 victory over the Terriers for its fourth ’Pot championship.

BU has won all fourteen Beanpot matchups with the Huskies since, including a 5-4 triumph in last season’s consolation game. That winning streak is the longest between two opponents in the tournament’s history. The Terriers have an all-time Beanpot record of 83-31, which includes a 30-7 record against Northeastern. In the consolation game, BC defeated Harvard, 4-3.
