Terriers are back on the ice tonight for the 67th Beanpot Tournament, facing defending champion Northeastern in the second semifinal contest, scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. at TD Garden. BC and Harvard meet in the first semifinal at 5 p.m. Both games air live on NESN and TSN.
BU, which has taken home the silver trophy 30 times, has dropped two close games to ranked opponents—Arizona State and Massachusetts—following a five-game unbeaten streak (4-0-1). The Huskies also come into the game with a string of losses, dropping four of the last five.
Earlier this season, BU defeated NU 4-1 after the teams had tied, 5-5, the previous night.
Northeastern’s offense is led by graduate transfer Brandon Hawkins with 22 points, freshman Tyler Madden with 20 and All-American defenseman Jeremy Davies with 20. Sophomore Zach Solow is the top goal scorer with 11, followed by junior Grant Jozefek with 10. Goalie Cayden Primeau has a 2.42 GAA and a .921 save percentage.
For BU, freshman Joel Farabee has moved to the top of the scoring chart with 26 points. The Flyers’ first-round draft pick in 2018 has wielded a hot stick since returning from the World Junior Championships, generating five goals and seven assists in the past eight games. Junior Patrick Curry has been enjoying a breakout season and already has a career high 17 points with four goals in his last five games.
Senior co-captain Bobo Carpenter, who sat out the UMass game, is questionable for tonight’s game as well.
