BU tops Harvard in Beanpot semis
By Brion O'Connor
BOSTON -- Boston University rode the solid, and sometimes spectacular, goaltending of senior Kieran Millan to defeat Harvard, 3-1, in the opening round of the 60th annual Beanpot tournament at TD Garden.
BU got all the scoring it needed by the 14-minute mark of the second period,on goals by Matt Nieto and Wade Megan, who had a pair.
The victory puts the No. 1-ranked Terriers (17-8-1, 13-6-1 Hockey East) into the Beanpot finals for a record 49th time. They will face the winner on Monday's nightcap between Boston College and Northeastern.
