Just a few hours away from faceoff. Making the Internet rounds of Championship Game links and notes ...
Beanpot brings out the best (The Berkshire Eagle)
"Some things are just quintessential New England. Clam chowder, Fenway Park, Samuel Adams beer, the Beanpot." Mmm, Sam Adams.

Beanpot 2011: Boston College And Northeastern Battle For Title Monday Night (SB Nation Boston)
SB Nation Boston's Kat Hasenauer Cornetta breaks down tonight's Championship game. My favorite quote, via Die Hard Dogs: "BC is playing for a Beanpot. Northeastern is playing for immortality."

Ferriero family Beanpot article #2. "For over two decades it's been nothing but the agony of defeat for the Northeastern University men's hockey team in the Beanpot Tournament. Not since 1988 have the Huskies captured the title in the prestigious two-week showdown that features the four Boston Division 1 hockey programs."

BC, Northeastern to Tangle for Beanpot Title (New England Hockey Journal)
"To say that Boston College and Northeastern are approaching Monday night's championship game of the 59th Beanpot from different directions is an understatement, along the lines of stating that the team that scores the most goals has a great chance of winning."
Beanpot final: BC vs. Northeastern (Soaring to Glory)
"Normally, I would say the Eagles will win the game in the same convincing fashion as they've been winning all year, but this is different. The Beanpot (usually) brings out the best in all of the teams who play, and for Northeastern, their first title in over two decades is very close. I expect a strong effort by the Huskies, not only to beat Number One, but to end their drought."
Beanpot 2011: No Dogs Allowed (Around The Res)
"I don't take too much from the first meeting of these teams as it was the first game of the season. To think a game that early is indicative of much, seems naïve. That said, it's not as though the Eagles exactly lit up the Huskies. They won 2-0 with an empty netter and the only real goal came from a snipe by Steve Whitney."
