An unlikely hero put the No. 4 Harvard Crimson ahead for good in the first Beanpot semifinal game Monday night at TD Garden.

Third-line defenseman Clay Anderson scored his second goal of the season and sixth of his career on a beautiful slapshot from the point on the power play with 12:21 remaining. His was the first of three straight goals for the Crimson, but the Huskies mounted a late comeback before falling 4-3.
