Game Day: BU vs. NU for the Beanpot Championship UPDATED

Two weeks later than originally scheduled, the Terriers and Northeastern will meet tonight in the 63rd Beanpot Championship game at TD Garden. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. but depends on the conclusion of the consolation game. NESN and TSN will broadcast the game and a live stream should be available on CrickFree . (Correction)

BU will be looking to end a three-game non-winning streak, to earn its 20th win of the season, and to secure its first Beanpot crown since 2009.

Winners of three of their last four games, the Huskies are led by junior Kevin Roy with 39 points (16G, 23A) and sophomore Dalen Hedges with 31 points (8G, 23A). Goaltending chores have been split by Clay Witt and Derick Roy.

 ► Former captain Jacques Joubert, back at BU for Friday night’s 20-year commemoration of the Terriers’ 1995 national championship, talked with the Daily Free Press about the current squad.
