No. 6 Boston College wins Beanpot over Northeastern 2-1

  Boston College's hockey team won its seventh Beanpot title Tuesday with a 2-1 win over host Northeastern.

BOSTON – Kristyn Capizzano and Erin Connolly tallied third period goals to lead the sixth-ranked Boston College women's hockey team to its seventh Beanpot title Tuesday night with a 2-1 win over host Northeastern.

Scoreless through two periods, Northeastern took a 1-0 lead just over a minute into the third, but Capizzano equalized at 8:37 with a rising one-timer over Northeastern goaltender Brittany Bulgalski. Four and a half minutes later, BC capitalized on its second power-play opportunity of the night when Connolly banged in Andie Anastos' pass into the low slot to give the Eagles the lead.

BC goaltender Katie Burt made 19 saves in the win, while Bulgalski made 22 saves in the loss.

Connolly was voted as the Beanpot MVP, while Bulgalski was recognized with the Bertagna Award as the tournament's top goaltender. 

BC has now won three of the last four Beanpot titles. This was the Eagles' second trophy win in the last five days after claiming the 2016-17 Hockey East regular-season crown on Friday night.
