I was at the BC/Minny game the day before, but woke up Sunday morning SO SICK that I could barely crawl out of bed. I missed the BC/Miami game live but saw it on the tube. I was miraculously cured immediately following that game. ;)

Best game live for me... 2001 BC vs North Dakota for the national title. Unbelievable game. I wept while the team celebrated.

I was at that game too - one of the greatest games I've ever seen! ( although my #1 is Maine vs Michigan in the national semi-final in 1995) That move by Dean Blais, pulling the goalie with about 3:30 left to get a 2-man advantage was pretty ballsy, but it worked! And Kolanos' goal for the game-winner was a thing of beauty!

That was an amazing game. Paul Martin with the save of the game, Vanek winning it in OT.

As a UNH fan I was hoping Michigan would hold on in this one as I thought they had a shot to beat Michigan, but knew Minnesota would roll in the final :(

Sorry to go with my team for this category, but the UNH-Maine game last year that Paul Thompson won on a goal with 15 seconds left in regulation was an absolute classic. Game went back and forth all night and Maine should have won it, but Nyquist hit the post after DiGiralomo tried to come out and beat him to the puck. Not sure I've seen a better regular season game than that, and I was at the Whitt that night.


I'll say, I've never seen a luckier stretch (30 seconds or so) of hockey. You get one of, if not the most talented players in the league with a wide open net, blows an edge and hits the post on a wide open net, then as Maine is trying to clear the puck, a skater gets tripped up by the blue line, then Thompson's goal banks in off of Sirman from behind the goal line. Wicked exciting finish.
