BOSTON -- An old saying goes that good things come to those who wait. That is indeed the case for hockey fans in Boston on this Tuesday evening where No. 3 Boston University and No. 6 Harvard kick off the 63rd Beanpot Tournament semifinals.
Faceoff is set for 5 p.m. The teams are meeting for the second time this season after the Crimson earned a 3-2 overtime victory on Nov. 25, 2014 at Agganis Arena.
Both semifinal games and next Monday night's championship will be televised on New England Sports Network with Tom Caron and Andy Brickley on the call.
