Fallstrom, Crimson Take Third
BOSTON – Monday night in TD Garden, Boston Bruins prospect and Harvard University forward Alex Fallstrom recorded two assists in the Crimson’s 5-4 defeat of Boston University in the consolation match-up of the 59th Annual Beanpot Tournament.

Fallstrom’s right’s were acquired by the Bruins on Oct. 18 2009 from the Minnesota Wild and as a new member of the Bruins organization, Fallstrom participated in Bruins development camp last summer.

“It’s a really fun week, you get to know a lot of good guys and skate with a lot of great players. It’s an overall great experience both mentally and physically,” he said. 

But Monday night’s game was a little more special to the Stockholm, Sweden native, as he skated over the Bruins logo in TD Garden.

“It was a fun game to play, in the Garden, that’s really special,” Fallstrom said, “That’s a big dream, to one-day maybe play in a Bruins jersey here.

"But I’m with Harvard now...”

The win was Harvard’s first in a Beanpot game since the semi-final round in 2008, that year they went on to lose the championship game to Boston College, 6-5 in overtime. 

“I feel like this is exactly what we needed, this kind of win. It gives you a real confidence boost,” Fallstrom said after the game.

In this year’s consolation match-up, the Crimson fought back from single goal deficits twice, to earn the victory over the No. 15 BU Terriers. 

Boston University jumped out to the quick 1-0 lead just under six minutes into the game, but Harvard responded in the second period with three goals in a 1:13 span, beginning with a short-hander on which Fallstrom recorded his first assist.

Fallstrom’s second assist of the night came on the third goal in the span. 

“The whole team came out strong I think and my teammates really helped me out. It doesn’t really matter if you’re on the score sheet or not as long as you win,” he said. 

Boston University managed to climb back and even the score at 3-3 before the second period came to an end.

It was BU who once again one-upped Harvard early in the third on a power play goal as another Boston Bruins prospect, Terrier defenseman David Warsofsky, recorded an assist on the go-ahead goal.

But it was Fallstrom's Crimson who came charged back and overcame the single-tally deficit for the second time in the game, to walk away with the 5-4 victory.
