2015 Beanpot Begins Tonight
Not crazy about New England following Super Bowl XLIX (diehard Seahawks fan since I was 8), but it's Beanpot Tuesday in Boston.
Monday's annual first-round games at TD Garden were postponed by snow. No. 6 Harvard will now face No. 3 Boston University at 5 p.m. this evening, while Northeastern and No. 11 Boston College will follow at 8 p.m. on Causeway Street.
The winners will advance to next Monday's championship game, barring any future inclement weather developments. BC has won the last five men's Beanpot titles.
The 2015 Women's Beanpot also begins tonight at Bright Hockey Center at Harvard with the same interschool matchups. No. 1 BC, the defending champion, will square off with Northeastern at 5 p.m., followed by the No. 4 host Crimson against No. 6 BU at 8 p.m. The victors will advance to next week's title tilt in Cambridge.
