He scored the game-winner on his back.
With the scored tied, 1-1, in the third period of a nail-biting Beanpot championship between Boston College and Northeastern Monday night, BC senior center Patrick Brown set up in the slot, trying to get in position for a tip.
Eagles senior defenseman Isaac MacLeod got the puck at the left point, Brown slipped into place. But Northeastern’s John Stevens was stepping into the same spot, and he hauled down Brown from behind. MacLeod unleashed his shot and Brown, from the ice, reached out with his stick and tipped the puck past Huskies goalie Clay Witt to give the Eagles a 2-1 lead with 5:30 remaining. BC went on to claim a 4-1 victory for its fifth straight Beanpot championship. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
