Beanpot Returns to Chestnut Hill

For the second night in a row, a friend of Danny's will walk away champion. 9 1/2 months ago as I toted Dan the Banner around the beautiful BC campus taking pictures, I thought to myself "this exercise will lead directly to a Beanpot win for the hockey team in 2010." Ok, that's a lie, I didn't say that. But Boston College is a friend of Danny, and tonight is a big night at the Heights after yet another epic BC-BU battle on the ice. Rough first period, but BC took the reins in the second, keyed by a highlight reel goal by freshman Chris Kreider as he passed to himself between the legs of the (helpless) BU defender, swept across the crease and tucked the puck just inside the post to stretch BC's lead to 3-1. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but 2000-01: BC wins Beanpot, BC wins National Championship, 2007-08: BC wins Beanpot, BC wins National Championship...something to keep in mind. And this year, after getting a campus visit from Danny, it's almost not fair to the rest of the nation to try and take down the Eagles.
