Boston University defeats Boston College, 3-2

Boston University junior goalie John Curry wasn't too busy last night, making 18 saves, but he was a key to the Terrier machine that won the Beanpot championship game over Boston College, its 11th consecutive win this season.

"We played a great game on team defense," said Curry, who has a 3-0 record in the Beanpot. "Everyone played hard, and to tell you the truth, I wish I was more busy. When you go a long time without making a save, you sort of feel like you're missing...

For road games, the Boston University players usually wear their red warmup suits, filing out of visiting rinks with bags draped over their shoulders.

But last night, after they won their 27th Beanpot championship in 54 years with a 3-2 victory over Boston College, the Terriers trooped out of their locker room in suits and ties, dressed as if they had played a home game.

Because whether it's Boston Garden, the FleetCenter, or TD Banknorth Garden, this footprint of do...

Last night, Boston College and Boston University faced off for the fourth time this season. And nobody would be surprised if the two went head-to-head again in the Hockey East Tournament -- or perhaps even in the NCAAs.

``We're both good teams this year," said BU coach Jack Parker. ``We both could be playing at the end of the year for Hockey East and NCAA tournament situations. Or we could both get knocked off. The playoffs is something where you never know what's going...

For the 27th time in 54 years -- exactly half of all the occasions this magical tournament has been played -- Boston University is the Beanpot champion.

In an emotional, check-filled affair, the Terriers toppled Boston College, 3-2, in the championship game last night at the TD Banknorth Garden.

The Eagles tied it with a third-period goal, but BU forward Peter MacArthur netted the game-winner at 7:18, giving the Terriers their 11th win in a row, the longest streak in...

More than 90 minutes had passed since the game's end, so the raucous crowd had departed the TD Banknorth Garden Monday night and Causeway Street was in rare, wind-tunnel form. The blast of winter air was numbing, and while the comfort of a warm bus was his choice, Jack Parker halted his progress, backed down the bus step, maneuvered over a snowbank and around a puddle of slush, and accommodated the passerby who had requested a picture.

The fact that Parker was holding t...

A prank backfired Monday night, and because it did, a 20-year-old Boston University student wasn't in attendance to watch the final period of the Terriers' dramatic 3-2 win over Boston College in the Beanpot championship.

According to police reports, Charles Geyer of Allston was escorted from the TD Banknorth Garden between the second and third periods after he grabbed the BC mascot. Witnesses told police that Geyer hopped a railing into the runway used for the Zamboni,...

After last night's 3-2 win over Boston College, Boston University coach Jack Parker was quick to remind his inquisitors that the 2004-05 Terrier club, which also won the Beanpot championship, was a pretty talented team.

Rookie Chris Bourque , who scored the Beanpot overtime winner last season, was one of Hockey East's most heralded freshmen. John Curry , the third-string goalie to start the season, emerged into one of the country's stingiest puckstoppers. Last year's te...

Boston College's Brian Boyle received much of the blame and credit for the deciding sequence of the Beanpot championship game last night.

In a 54-second span of the third period, Boyle assisted on the tying goal (6:24), then drew a penalty (6:47), which led to a Boston University power play, on which the Terriers converted the deciding score (7:18) in their 3-2 victory.

Boyle was originally credited with scoring the goal that tied the game 2-2, but he notified offici...
