It had been quite some time -- 25 years actually -- since the Northeastern Huskies men's hockey team had beaten the Boston University Terriers men's hockey team in the Beanpot Tournament, but they did so Monday night.
Huskies freshman Kevin Roy netted a hat trick in the 3-2 win, scoring a goal in each period including his third with under five minutes to play in the game.
The win is an upset for the Huskies, who came into the game last in Hockey East while BU held down fourth place while being ranked 13th in the nation.
Northeastern will play next Monday against the winner of BCHarvard in the 61st Beanpot Tournament Finals.
It's NU's third trip to the finals in five years, although they didn't win the other two.
For BU, it's the fourth straight year they'll go without a Beanpot championship, despite leading all four teams with 29 trophies in the tournament's history.
Danny O'Regan and Sahir Gill scored for the Terriers, but Northeastern goaltender Chris Rawlings was strong in net.
