Going to OT in Beanpot final

It's been a back and forth affair in Boston tonight, with BC and Harvard knotted 5-5 after regulation. It'll be an exciting sudden death session to say the least. - Alex Biega (+3) has made some nice defensive plays throughout to go along with his two assists. His swift skating makes him noticeable on most shifts, as he's counted on to be a Crimson motor from the back end. His wrister towards the net was deflected in by Mike Taylor for the game-tying goal. - Andrew Orpik, along with linemates Matt Lombardi and Kyle Kucharski, have provided a spark in the Eagles offensive zone. The trio owned the boards in the third, with their crashing style creating the fifth BC goal (credited to Orpik). - Nathan Gerbe has been more active since the start of the second period. He's often been found flying around the net, both with the puck and on the forecheck, and his #9 jersey has been active after the whistle as well. He showed a great burst late, going around a defender while shorthanded to create a scoring opportunity. Pointless thus far, Gerbe looks to again be the hero after last Monday's OT goal against BU. Sudden death now underway....
