Top-ranked Boston College and Northeastern will meet on Monday night in the 59th Annual Beanpot championship game at the TD Garden. The Eagles and Huskies will be playing in the title game against each other for the first time since 1983 and for just the second time ever. The game also marks the first of three straight head-to-head meetings between the two Boston rivals. Puck drop is set for 7:30 p.m.

Before the grand finale, Harvard and Boston University will square off in the consolation game at 4:30 p.m. The Terriers will be taking part in just their third consolation match since 1994, while Harvard has played the early game on Championship Monday in 11 of the past 12 seasons. The game will decide third place in the Beanpot, but will not be televised. For coverage, tune into WTBU or WHRB.
