A win at Conte Forum. And now the legendary BU-BC rivalry will play out on the ice at TD Garden in the final of the 58th annual Beanpot.

The Terriers spent January cleaning up the wreckage of the Eagles 4-1 win at Agganis Arena on December 4. Last Monday, the Terriers pushed through the Beanpot’s first round with a 2-1 victory over the Northeastern Huskies, earning a shot at their 30th Beanpot title. Tonight’s game, set for 8 p.m., is BU’s 20th final matchup with Boston College, which dispatched Harvard 6-0 in the first game of the first round.

Throughout last week’s game, Twitter feeds fired away, with #bubeanpot giving #beanpot hashtag a run for its money. Tonight, we want to up the ante, and we want to hear from you.
