Littlefield On Sports: Another Sad Beanpot For Northeastern And Soccer On The Horizon

Download Audio

We discuss Northeastern men's hockey's fourth Beanpot championship loss in five years on Monday night. Boston University's captain, Matt Grzelcyk, put the score at four to three just 51 seconds into overtime.

We also look forward to the return of Major League Soccer and the New England Revolution, who made some impressive additions since losing the MLS Cup to the L.A. Galaxy last December.

Correction: On-air, we misstated that the MLS games will be televised in the U.K. for the first time. In fact, MLS games were previously broadcast in the U.K. on British Telecom's BT Sports, though not on a regular basis.
