Snow 1 Beanpot 0; E-Rod is Player of the Week

Winter Storm Linus, adding up to a foot of additional snow to New England, has forced the opening round of the 2015 Beanpot Tournament to be pushed back a day to Tuesday. Times remained unchanged and BU will meet Harvard in the early game with puck drop at 5 p.m. The Terriers will be the home team.
