In one of the most dramatic games in NCAA hockey history, the Boston University Terriers scored two goals in the final minute of regulation and then won it in overtime to defeat the University of Miami (Ohio), 4-3, to claim the schools fifth national title.
Colby Cohen’s shot from the point was deflected up in the air by a Miami defender and somehow nestled over the shoulder of the Redhawks goalie and mayhem ensued. For BU it marks the fifth tournament title of the season and the sixth championship. The Terriers were ranked #1 for most of the season and in a tournament of upsets, were able to claim their first national title since 1995.
With BU trailing 3-1 in third with less than a minute to go and the goalie pulled, Zach Cohen stuffed home a backhander on the doorstep with :58 seconds left, then just seconds later Hobey Baker winner Matt Gilroy found Nick Bonino in the slot for a one time goal which sent the BU bench into bedlam and the game into OT.
