The first of two Beanpot semifinal games Monday at TD Garden got off to a relatively slow start, as the two teams combined for just 11 shots on net in the first period — Northeastern 6, No. 4 Harvard 5.

But the Huskies did have one golden opportunity to strike first in the closing seconds of the frame, but Crimson goalie Merrick Madsen made a big save on the Huskies’ Sam Kurker to keep things scoreless.
