It was just three years ago that Tewksbury earned a dramatic overtime win in the state championship game on the ice of TD Garden. With a win on Monday night, the Redmen can return to that same stage. Here are five things to get you ready for the North Division 2 championship game.

1. Who, What, When and Where: Tewksbury takes on Beverly on Monday night at 6 p.m. on the ice of the Tsongas Center in Lowell. The winner earns the North Division 2 championship and will take on Medfield Sunday in the state title game.

2. Road to the Garden: Tewksbury earned the No. 3 seed in the tournament and a first round bye. In the quarterfinals, the Redmen dominated Masconomet with a 4-1 victory. Then in the semifinals, Tewksbury clipped Marblehead, 3-2, to set up the meeting against Beverly.

3. Scouting the Panthers: Beverly is the No. 1 seed in North Division 2 courtesy of a regular season record of 18-1-1. After a first round bye, the Panthers edged Danvers in a shootout, 2-1. The semifinals were a bit easier for Beverly, which thumped Lincoln-Sudbury by a 5-1 margin.

4. Common Foes: Though Beverly and Tewksbury didn't face each other this season, they had a few common opponents. Both teams beat Methuen and Marblehead this year. While Beverly had no problem with Lincoln-Sudbury, meanwhile, the Redmen fell to the Warriors, 3-1, on January 15 and tied them, 3-3, on January 29.

5. Tsongas Tickets: If you're looking to be in the stands at the Tsongas Center for the game, you can buy tickets at the door and not online in advance. Adult tickets cost $12 while students and seniors will pay $7. You will also likely need to bring a few extra dollars for parking, as there is a garage not far from the arena.
