With a must-win situation in each of its last two games and a standing-room-only crowd expected at the Boston Garden, tonight's Beanpot finale against Boston University will be more than the knock-down stick-in-the-face episodes we've come to know over the past decade--if anything more than the intensity of a Harvard-B.U. game is possible.
At any rate, it all begins tonight at 9:15, after first-round losers Boston College and Northeastern play for third place at 6:15. Hopefully, it will be a warm-up for a B.C. win over Providence this Friday.
Harvard won the Beanpot last year over B.U. 4-3, but the Terriers are 23-1-0 this season, having lost only to Yale.
