CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Heading to Matthews Arena for the second time in a week, Harvard women's hockey will face Boston University in the Beanpot Consolation Feb. 7 at 4:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast on the GoNUxstream.

• Harvard toppled Boston University in the Beanpot consolation a year ago, 5-3. The two teams played a tight tilt in Cambridge in October - a 4-3 Terrier win in overtime.
