Beanpot 2020: Northeastern Beats B.U. in Double OT

BOSTON — Jordan Harris scored 14 minutes 33 seconds into double overtime, and Northeastern beat Boston University, 5-4, on Monday night to win the 68th annual Beanpot championship.

Harris skated into the high slot and fired a wrist shot that sailed untouched under Terriers goalie Sam Tucker with 46 seconds remaining on a Huskies power play.

After the Terriers pulled Tucker with a minute and a half remaining in regulation, B.U.’s Trevor Zegras forced overtime by scoring his second goal of the game as time expired. Zegras, a freshman, collected a pass from Jake Wise through the crease, pulled the puck out from behind the net and backhanded it in.

Northeastern had taken a 4-2 lead after scoring four unanswered goals in a span of eight and a half minutes.

The Huskies (15-8-3) won their third straight Beanpot title for the first time. The feat was last achieved when Boston College won five in a row from 2010 to ’14.

B.U. (10-9-8) came up short in its bid to add to its tournament record of 30 Beanpot crowns, which is 10 better than the runner-up, Boston College.

Because of N.C.A.A. rules introduced this season, the game was officially recorded as a draw for both teams. After teams play one five-minute overtime, the N.C.A.A. awards a tie and does not count any stats from additional overtimes.
