Storyline: BC and BU face off tonight for the Beanpot championship. The Terriers will be looking for back to back Beanpot titles, having knocked off Northeastern in overtime in last year's championship game to win their first crown since 2009. BC will be looking to return to the rafters at TD Garden after having their streak of five consecutive Beanpots broken last year.

Both teams come in to the game hot. BC hasn't lost in calendar year 2016, including a 1-0-1 weekend against BU in mid-January. The Terriers' only blemishes since January came in that tight series against BC. Both teams have moved from the bubble region to the top 7 in the Pairwise in the past month.
