The annual Beanpot Tournament is as good as it gets for college athletics, and any hockey fan in and around the Boston area will stand behind that statement forever.
While Boston University has the most titles, Boston College has won the last three entering the 2013 tourney. Northeastern, which has the fewest Beanpot titles, has a chance to hoist its fifth Beanpot title on Monday night against BC.
Will the 2013 championship match be an instant classic? It would join a long list of amazing finishes, including Harvard topping BC in 1955, Northeastern ousting the Eagles in 1980, BC edging Harvard in 1994, the Terriers taking the Huskies in 2005 and BC herding the Huskies in 2011.
