Beanpot 2012, BC Vs. BU: Eagles, Terriers Face Off In Title Game

It's go time. Boston College and Boston University will face off for the 21st time in the championship game of the 2012 Beanpot at 7:30 p.m. EDT on Monday night at TD Garden in Boston, MA (TV/Radio: NESN, 98.5 The Sports Hub).

Boston College and Boston University are meeting for the 258th time in the history of the two storied programs. The Terriers own a 127-113-17 in the all-time series, but the Eagles are 34-36-8 under legendary head coach Jerry York.

The Eagles defeated the Northeastern Huskies, 7-1, in a rematch of last year's Beanpot championship game in the semifinal round last Monday. Paul Carey, Johnny Gaudreau and Steven Whitney all scored two goals and Parker Milner turned away 22 shots in net while Chris Rawlings allowed three goals in 14 minutes in the loss for Northeastern.

Boston University, meanwhile, had a much closer game in its Beanpot semifinal. The Terriers were carried by a stellar performance from goalie Kieran Millan, who stopped 29 shots. Wade Megan potted two goals in the victory for BU.

The Terriers' own a far better record than anyone else in Beanpot play at 85-34 overall. Boston College has the second best all-time victory, as the Eagles are 70-49 in their Beanpot games. The Terriers are 12-8 against the Eagles in the championship game, and BU holds a 27-13 record against BC in 40 meetings between the two school in the Beanpot.

Both schools had one game in between Beanpot games. One fared well, the other didn't. Boston College continued its winning ways by flattening Vermont, 6-1, on Friday behind a pair of goals for Chris Kreider, Johnny Gaudreau and 21 saves -- including 11 in the third period -- for Miler. Boston College improved to 18-10-1 and 13-7-1 in Hockey East.

BU wasn't as lucky. UMass-Amherst upset the top-ranked Terriers, 3-2, on Friday. Chris Connolly and Alex Chiasson scored the goals for the Terriers and Kieran Millan had 18 saves, 16 of which came in the third period.

Once again, it all comes down to the two biggest rivals: BC and BU. Just how it should be.
