One of the most celebrated college hockey events in New England is almost here. The 2014 Beanpot Championship will display the rivalry and competitive nature between four of Boston's top colleges.
"It has become Boston's 'social event of winter season.' The first two Monday nights of February in Boston are reserved for the Beanpot, an annual hockey tournament that features Boston College, Boston University, Harvard and Northeastern. It all started on Dec. 26, 1952 at the old Boston Arena. The next year the Beanpot moved to the Garden, where it has been played ever since and become the official battle for Boston's hockey bragging rights."
