Boston University has historically dominated the Beanpot, but Boston College has enjoyed recent success, winning three straight titles.
This year's final, during which BC pulled out an overtime win over BU, was one of the more thrilling in recent memory. It was likely even more special for the team's seniors, including defenseman Tommy Cross, who has become a leader since arriving at Chestnut Hill.
Cross' teammates spoke glowingly of his leadership ability prior to the Beanpot final, stressing that they've known since his first season that he would ultimately become the team's captain.
