2020 Beanpot final live stream: Watch Northeastern vs. Boston University online

Northeastern will attempt to make history Monday night at TD Garden in its Beanpot final matchup versus Boston University.

A victory for the Huskies would give them three consecutive Beanpot tournament championships, something the school has never accomplished in its storied hockey history. Northeastern won back-to-back titles in 1984 and 1985 but wasn't able to finish off a three-peat in 1986. The Huskies reached this year's final after a 3-1 semifinals win over Harvard.

The Terriers are no strangers to the Beanpot final with a tournament record 30 championships. Boston University has lost in the final three times since winning their last Beanpot title in 2015, including a 5-2 loss to Northeastern in 2018. The Terriers beat the rival Boston College Eagles 5-4 in double overtime of last week's semifinals.

Haggerty: Trade deadline primer for all 31 NHL teams

Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara lead NHL in plus-minus this decade

Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara lead NHL in plus-minus this decade

The Boston Bruins were the NHL's best team before the league hit pause on the 2019-20 season due to the coronavirus, and it's not hard to see why. 

The B's are one of the best defensive teams in the entire NHL. They have allowed the least goals with 167 and rank eighth in shots against per games played with 30.

Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara are a big reason why Boston has found plenty of defensive success over the last decade. The trio ranks one, two and three in plus-minus from the 2010-11 season to the 2019-20 campaign. 

Although those three have the best plus-minus in the league, a majority of the B's 2019-20 roster is solid defensively. 

If the NHL season does resume at some point, you can bet on the Bruins being just as good as they were before the league hit pause.

Bruins prospect Jeremy Swayman named Hobey Baker finalist

Bruins prospect Jeremy Swayman will begin his professional career once the NHL regular season pause is over, but the goaltending prospect has already ended his college career in style.

The University of Maine goaltender was named one of three Hobey Baker finalists as the top player in all of NCAA hockey this past season after a tremendous year with the Black Bears.

Swayman, a fourth round draft pick of the Boston Bruins in 2017, finished up his junior season in Orono by playing over 2,000 minutes and leading the nation in saves (a school-record 1,099) with a 2.07 goals against average and a .939 save percentage (second in the country).

Swayman earned Hockey East Player of the Year and Mike Richter Finalist honors in addition to being named a Hobey Baker finalist and leaves the Black Bears in the same rarified air as fellow Maine alums like Ben Bishop and Jimmy Howard.

The 21-year-old Swayman signed an entry level contract with the Bruins last month and will embark on his professional career once hockey has resumed. Swayman obviously will be in need of some development at the pro level before he’s considered NHL material in Boston, but he’ll be in the pipeline to be the heir apparent to the No. 1 gig in Boston along with fellow prospects Daniel Vladar and Kyle Keyser.

Swayman joins University of Minnesota Duluth defenseman Scott Perunovich and University of North Dakota forward Jordan Kawaguchi as the three finalists up for college hockey’s top honor, which will be announced on April 11.
