Only 13 goals scored have been scored in the first three games of the tournament, counting the semifinal round games last week and the consolation game earlier today between Boston University and Harvard University. The fewest number of goals ever scored in a Beanpot tournament is 15, in 2007.

That means a 1-0 result tonight in the championship game would break the record. There’s a chance these two teams could do it. Between them, Northeastern and BC have played three games this season that ended 1-0.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the highest number of goals scored in a tournament in a single year was 46, in 1973.
