The Takeaway: BC beats Northeastern 7-1 in Beanpot semifinal (College Hockey News)
"We, as a team, haven’t been playing as well as we are capable of. We were just looking forward to getting that win, we were on track we swept UNH last weekend and we just wanted to keep things rolling. Coming out here and beating Northeastern seven to one, I think that as a team we’re playing really well and it should carry over into next weekend." - Johnny Gaudreau

"I think we just kind of settled in,’’ said Cross, whose team plays at Vermont Friday before turning its attention to the Beanpot championship. "The first period, I don’t think we were all going at the same time and at the same speed. I think, come the second period, we took the great effort we had in the first period and we put everyone on the same page and it definitely made a difference. I think it was just a slight adjustment.’’

"It’s a great run," said Carey, who starred at Thayer Academy and Salisbury (Conn.) School. "We don’t pay much attention to the past ... (but) after winning it you kind of feel you have to defend it. There’s a certain amount of pride that comes with that. You want to keep the trophy at your school."
