BSJ Daily Briefing 02.13.18: Northeastern is the new top dog in Hub hockey

[get_snippet] [theme-my-login show_title=0]

Good morning!

A few random thoughts as I'm sure a party 30 years in the making is still raging on Huntington Avenue...

  • Congratulations to the Northeastern Huskies for ending their Beanpot drought after 30 years, with a 5-2 victory over Boston University at TD Garden.
  • Even though the Terriers were missing center Jordan Greenway (Olympics), this was a just result. Northeastern has been the best team in the city this season and had previously beaten the Terriers twice.
  • You won't see a prettier power play goal than this one by Nolan Stevens:

  • Tremendous teamwork on this power play goal, which made it 4-1, by Adam Gaudette:

  • Gaudette, who is the nation's leading scorer, finished off the game, his hat trick and the MVP award with this sick open-net goal. Nice stickwork:

  • Huskies freshman goalie Cayden Primeau (Keith's son, and a Canadiens prospect) made 38 saves, and several were of the highlight-reel variety
  • BU's Jake Oettinger was no slouch either.

  • It was a tremendous show with a great atmosphere for the entire game, and the Terriers never backed down. You thought the game was still in doubt as they pulled Oettinger late in the game. But, as usual this season, the Huskies wouldn't be denied.
  • Congrats to coach Northeastern coach Jim Madigan and the rest of the Huskies, including the many alumni in the area who weren't sure this day would ever come again.

And away we go...
