BOSTON — Nolan Stevens is having a fantastic season, and the Northeastern captain put on a show during the first period of Monday night’s 2018 Beanpot final against Boston University.
The top-line forward tied the score at one goal apiece with a gorgeous power-play tally, complete with a sweet deke and silky smooth finish past Terriers goalie Jake Oettinger.
The Huskies cashed in on another power play later in the period to take a 2-1 advantage into the first intermission.
Northeastern is seeking its first Beanpot crown since 1988 — the longest active title drought among the tournament’s four participating schools.
