Written By Kris Baker on Tuesday, February 3, 2009 | 2/03/2009
At The Beanpot, Alex Biega had an assist and just missed a game-tying goal as Harvard lost to Boston University, 4-3. Solid at both ends throughout, Biega saw his wrister from the point tipped in to make it a 3-3 tie with under 5:00 to play. Moments later at 18:14, the Terriers would counter on the power play to go up 4-3. The Crimson applied pressure with the extra attacker in the final minute, capped by a booming Biega one-timer that beat Kieran Millan as time expired. The puck entered the net after the siren sounded, thrusting the Terriers into next Monday's final. The assist gives the junior one in each of his last four games. Biega and the Crimson move on to the third-place game, where they will face Andrew Orpik and Boston College. The senior forward was -1 in the opening nightcap as the Eagles got blown out by Northeastern, 6-1. In the QMJHL, Luke Adam assisted on all three Junior goals as Montreal lost to Halifax, 4-3. T.J. Brennan was +1 for the Juniors.
