as I posted in the hockey east thread...
For those interested, it looks like the two beanpot games will be streamed live via the buterriers website.
There is currently some ice issues they are addressing, with puck drop [was] at 5:25 for the NU/BC game.

Tied 1-1 at the end of two. Emily Field with the BC goal late in the period to even it up.

How the heck are these refs reviewing the plays? I'm a BU fan and I know the cameras/videos at WBA are terrible.

All Hockey East rinks are equipped with overhead goal cams

2-0 BU late in first, BU outshooting Harvard 16-3

Almost 3-0, as Poulin had a beauty of a play that Bellamy somehow managed to trap on the goal line despite being spread eagle on the ice.

Feeding frenzy here on Babcock Street as BU is romping along 5-0 at the end of two. Total run and gun offense, with Harvard giving up waaaaaaaay too many odd man rushes. Shots are 27-13 in the Terriers favor.

5-2 BU wins. Penalities galore towards the end there.

Championship vs NU should be a good game. NU has had BU's number this season.

Really? BU won the last meeting, and has now blown out both BC and Harvard in the last week.

Northeastern won the first two meetings at home against BU, but so what -- BU was also losing to Maine and UNH before last week.

I agree it should be a good game, since the last game was good. But looks like BU deserves to be the clear favorite, and is finally the team we thought they would be. This three game streak has me convinced.

Also worth noting that this'll be the first time a team other than Harvard and BC wins the women's Beanpot since 1998.

Clear favorite?...

bu won the last meeting yes but it was far from a convincing win. NU had a bad 3rd period that they still almost won anyways. Our previous meetings were much more convincing.

Interesting facts this is the first time Harvard has not been in the championship since 07. Also it pits the team with the most Beanpots against the one who has never won as a varsity team (they won in 1981 as a club team).

As for the NU-bc game...WOW. That was a great game on both sides. A little bit of questionable officiating but otherwise good. Nice seeing TTT again too bad one of us had to go home disappointed. We both thought it was going to a shootout and sure enough. NU definitely had an advantage in the shootout with Schelling and our top line plus Llanes

One of those games where it was just an absolute shame that it had to go to a shootout. NU was more than deserving of getting to the final though. I can't be too disappointed - I'm very high on NU, thought the game was extremely even with NU getting maybe a handful of extra chances. Just a shame that BC and Harvard ruined it for everyone a few years ago with the 3OT game :p

Anyway... there were 3 video reviews in the game, all no-goal calls that were confirmed by replay. Props to the officials for making use out of it and making sure. Alex Carpenter's dipsy-doodle dangle with seconds to go in OT to split three Husky defenders only to ring the post was a thing of beauty and the video I was recording would have been submitted to SportsCenter had it gone in.

Also... NU had a 2-on-0 and a 3-on-1 in the game, and neither time did the player with the puck pass it. The 2-on-0, she had no angle coming from the back of the net and a pass would have been a sure goal... does NU have puck-hog problems? Serious question.

Anyway... good to see a bunch of the crew -- wade, DC, HUX, NUWHDH, couple others. Sorry I embarrassed all of you with my best Billy Cundiff impression during the super shot :D :p

Three words: HIT. THE. NET.:cool:

I have to say, though, that making that shot from center ice into a slot of a size that leaves a very small margin for error should be worth more than a burrito:eek:

Curious question from a college hockey fan who doesn't pay nearly enough attention to the women's games as I should...

When did the women's Beanpot go from "play til you win" style to "shootouts / ties are acceptable"? Obviously, somewhere between 2007 and 2010. Related: Would a final still go multi-OT or would it be a single 5-minute OT?

Why did BU's club team not play in the 1993 Beanpot, getting replaced by Brown?

Thank you in advance!

The 2007 Semi between Harvard and BC, which luckily was the second game, as BC hosted, went 3 20 minute OT's before then Eagle, Anna MacDonald FINALLY netted the gamewinner well after midnight The format was changed after that. Although the next day was a tough one at work, I'd rather see a game ended in a goal scored while teams are playing than a shootout. 5 minute OT's of 4 on 4, and then maybe 3 on 3 would be much more fun, Boxscore (http://www.collegehockeystats.net/0607/boxes/wbc_har1.f06)

As for why Brown played in '93, I can't remember why, except that at the time BU was a flagging club team, and I would venture that they either couldn't or didn't field a team that year.

Women’s Beanpot Hockey Tournament

The women’s Beanpot Hockey Tournament was first held in 1979. It is one of the longest running tournaments in women’s college sports. The first year saw Boston College, Boston University, Harvard, and Northeastern face off against each other with Northeastern winning the first Women’s Beanpot Hockey crown. In one year, 1993, Brown replaced BU in the tournament. They also won the tournament in 1993, which was their only appearance in the tournament. Since its inception in 1979, Northeastern has the most Beanpot titles, followed by Harvard, BC, BU, and Brown.

Currently, the women’s Beanpot Hockey Tournament features BC, BU, Harvard, and Northeastern competing to be the best women’s hockey team in Boston. The women’s Beanpot is typically held on the first two Tuesdays in February.

The women’s Beanpot Hockey Tournament is hosted on a rotating basis at the arena of one of the schools.

Does anyone know why the women's beanpot started a week early this year?

Will the championship be a shootout or will it go sudden death?
