Winning the Beanpot can certainly erase the thought of some tough losses.
“That’s the beauty of having it at being a two-game series,” Harvard coach Ted Donato said. “I think our guys looked at it as an opportunity. Playing a great Boston College team was not only a great opportunity for us, but a great challenge for us.”
Harvard was unable to stop the Eagles’ run of Beanpot titles.
“It would put us in a class of BC athletics that no one has ever touched,” goalie Parker Milner said. “It would be incredible for us to do something like that.”
And if they win the Beanpot, they hope it’s the start of another run to an NCAA title this spring.
“We kind of stress that this is trophy season. Coming back from Christmas break there was an opportunity to win five or six trophies,” Mullane said. “I think we kind of take it one tournament at a time with the ultimate goal to win a national championship.”
