BC turns back NU for 4th straight Beanpot

BOSTON -- Boston College withstood a rally from Northeastern and beat the Huskies 6-3 to secure its fourth consecutive Beanpot championship.

Northeastern, which scored two straight goals to pull within 4-3 early in the third period, failed in its bid for the school's first Beanpot title since 1988.

Johnny Gaudreau scored twice for the Eagles, including a goal with 5:15 to play that gave BC a 5-3 lead. Pat Whitney added an empty-netter to cap the scoring.

Kevin Roy scored twice for Northeastern after registering a hat trick against Boston University in the first round. Roy was named the tournament's most valuable player.

The title is BC's 18th in the 61-year tournament's history.
