There are losses. There are bad losses. Then there are losses that make the kind of history no player wants any part of.

Such was case for Boston University senior Wade Megan after the 3-2 loss to Northeastern in the 2013 Beanpot first round Monday night at TD Garden. Megan had tears in his eyes when he was asked about being a part of the first class since 1965 to not win a Beanpot title, when coach Jack Parker was a freshman at BU. He cleared his throat a couple of times and exhaled hard before answering Steve Buckley‘s question.

“It’s pretty devastating,” Megan said. “I just wanted it so bad for my teammates, my classmates and my school in general, the BU community. But we have lot of season left. Can’t feel sorry for ourselves, just turn the page.”

It also marks the first loss by BU to Northeastern in the Beanpot since the 1988 title game, the last time Northeastern won the prestigious tournament. The last time BU went four years without winning a Beanpot was 1959-1965.
