BOSTON -- Luke Greiner had a hat trick to lead Harvard to a 7-4 victory over No. 13 Boston University on Monday in the Beanpot consolation game.

Peter Traber stopped 43 shots for Harvard (6-15-2). The Crimson have not won the annual tournament between the Boston area's four college hockey powers since 1993.

Boston College played Northeastern later Monday in the championship game.

Sean Maguire made 24 saves for the Terriers (13-12-1), who were playing in the third-place game for just the fourth time in 30 years.

Marshall Everson scored twice for Harvard, the first to tie it at 3 early in the second just 73 seconds before Greiner gave Harvard the lead. Greiner scored again late in the second and added an empty-netter in the final seconds.
