Boston University and Harvard spent a good deal of the first period of the Beanpot 2012 opener feeling each other out, while the Terriers failed to convert on their three power play opportunities, but things opened up quite a bit late in the second period. BU led 1-0 after the first intermission and extended their lead in the second period, going into intermission up 3-1. The Terriers went up 3-0 with just under six minutes remaining in the period, but the Crimson were able to pull one goal back.
Wade Megan opened the second period scoring after 7 minutes and 30 seconds, converting on a rebound. It felt like it was only a matter of time until the Terriers extended their lead for most of the period until Megan scored. Sahir Gill and Sean Escobedo were credited with the assists. Megan would score his second of the game later in the period, creating a shot for himself by cutting in from the left wing and flicking a backhand into the top shelf.
Alex Killorn was the man who put Harvard on the board shortly afterwards, as the Crimson capitalized on a power play to make it 3-1. BU goalie Kieran Millan was having a very good game up until the goal, but could have done more to stop Killorn's effort. Harvard was given another power play at the end of the period, but couldn't find another goal. Harvard have actually out-shot BU, but the Terriers lead 3-1 at the second intermission.
