Northeastern turned in a strong third period, fending off late pressure from BU to win the Beanpot championship—the Huskies’ first in 30 years. BU scored a goal after lifting its goalie for an extra skater with less than five minutes to play, bringing the score to 4-2. But when Adam Gaudette added an empty-net goal with 30 seconds to play to make it 5-2, fans littered the ice with hats to salute the hat trick, and they roared as the final seconds ticked away. The Huskies hurled their sticks, gloves, and helmets high into the air as they poured onto the ice and celebrated the victory.
