CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Senior captain Marie-Philip Poulin and junior Kayla Tutino each scored to help lift the No. 7 Boston University women's ice hockey team to a 3-1 victory over Northeastern in the 37th Annual Women's Beanpot consolation game on Tuesday at Harvard's Bright-Landry Hockey Center.
BU improved to 19-7-2 with the victory and claimed third place in the Beanpot by defeating Northeastern (9-15-4) for the third time this season. Two of the three BU goals came in the first period, with Poulin potting her team-leading 19th goal of the season 2:38 into the contest and Tutino tallying her eighth marker of the season with 21.1 seconds remaining in the stanza.
Poulin added an empty-netter late in regulation to seal the victory. Sophomore Victoria Hanson was solid between the pipes for the Terriers, making 31 saves to preserve the full result and earn her first Beanpot victory.
Junior Sarah Lefort and senior Shannon Stoneburgh each assisted on Tutino's strike. Lefort's seven career Beanpot points ranks first in program history; she has tallied three goals and four assists in six tournament tilts. Both of Poulin's goals were unassisted, the final of which came when she stole the puck from Heather Mottau and quickly deposited it into the vacant Northeastern cage.
Poulin opened the scoring after taking advantage of an errant Northeastern pass. The Huskies tried to move the puck out of their zone but the puck caromed off the boards just outside the NU zone, where Poulin picked up the disc. She skated in on Sarah Foss (38 saves) and uncorked a shot that whistled over Foss' glove and into the back of the net.
Stoneburgh was instrumental in the Terriers' second goal. She hustled to the left point and kept the puck in at the blue line before sending it down the boards for Lefort in the left corner. She fed it in front, where Tutino tipped the puck past Foss. After video review, it was confirmed that the puck trickled over the goal line.
NU got a goal back just 16 seconds into the second stanza, but Hanson shut the door for the remaining 39 minutes and change with 19 stops in the final two frames. The Huskies nearly had a second goal in the middle period, but Hanson made a terrific left-pad stop to maintain the status quo.
The Terriers improved to 17-0-0 when leading after two periods this season. BU has not allowed a third-period goal in each of its last three victories. Hanson stopped all seven shots she faced in the final 20 minutes, including a save on an in-close bid with 1:46 to play.
BU will return to action on Saturday in the first of a home-and-home series with Providence. The Terriers will host the back end of the weekend set on Sunday at 3 p.m.
