Once the distraction of the Super Bowl passes, Hub hockey fans can again turn their attention to the most cherished parochial trophy in college hockey. The marquee match of the first night of the 62nd Beanpot Tournament on Monday pits longtime rivals Boston College and Boston University in the nightcap (8 p.m. start). The "undercard" begins at 5 p.m., with a revived Northeastern squad squaring off against a persevering Harvard club.
Men’s hockey readies for Beanpot opener (The Daily Free Press)
If the Boston University men's hockey team is going to make it to the Beanpot Tournament final, it is going to need to do something it has not done in two tries this season - beat No. 2 Boston College.
Patrick Brown following in famous footsteps at BC (The Boston Globe)
When Boston College hockey coach Jerry York first scouted Patrick Wellington Brown at Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook-Kingswood in Michigan, he wasn't wowed by the forward's game. But there was something about him that stood out. York described it as "something in his DNA.'' There is no question that, in terms of athletic genes, Brown has the mother lode.
Hayes, BC benefit big from return (Boston Herald)
"Once that whole injury thing happened, I knew I was coming back for my senior year," said Hayes. "For us, it is all team goals, but personally I hadn't really gotten the success that I would have wanted as a student athlete at Boston College."

Boston College Hockey: Hockey East "Magic Number" (Soaring To Glory)
The team standing in Boston College's way now is not so much Providence anymore, nor is it really Northeastern: it's UMass-Lowell, who can still reach a maximum total of 31 points. They play the Eagles twice down the stretch, so getting there would require two wins over Boston College. As you might expect, that would make things quite uncomfortable for the Eagles as they look to ride a big wave of momentum into March.
