      The 1968 ECAC Quarterfinal between St. Lawrence and BC won by BC in OT, 7-6 at Appleton. Tim Sheehy vs. Gary Croteau. A 5th grader's dream game (except for the outcome)

        The HE final maybe 5 years ago where Maine beat Umass in OT was pretty awesome.

            How about the 1970 ECAC final against Clarkson (3 -2) to keep the undefeated season rolling? Hughes gets the tying goal waved off late in the third and then scores the winner in the final seconds! The 4th line with Eddie Ambis got 'em rolling.

              December 20, 2003 - Denver @ Minnesota State. Denver went on to win the National Championship this year, but this was probably the craziest game I have ever seen in person. Minnesota State had the best talent they ever had with David Backes and Shane Joseph and it sure made one for the ages with scoring 7 unanswered and winning 8-7.
              After that game DU fans referred to your arena as The House of Horrors.
              GO DU !!!

                One of my favorite games that never really gets mentioned was the 1999 NCAA quarterfinal game between UNH and Michigan won by UNH in Overtime 2-1. There were, at most 2 penalties the entire game (one on each team, maybe?), an extremely exciting, despite the low score, and very clean game between two great teams.

                UNH defeating BU shorthanded in overtime in the 1998 quarterfinal in Albany is probably my single favorite game. Drury's last college game, BU a heavy favorite (despite losing to Merrimack in the Hockey East quarters), UNH barely squeaked into the tournament after a typical late season slide. They played WCHA champion (I think?) Wisconsin the day before and won 7-4 (after trailing 3-1 late in the 2nd), the ice was terrible and BU was well rested. The regulation was back and forth action and score, and Matile made an incredible save late in regulation off of, I think, Sylvia. UNH was without their best shorthanded player (Bekar) in OT because of injury and Krog was in the box when Souza and Mowers broke 2 on 1 and Mowers finished it off beating Laroque (or was it Tom Noble?) to get UNH to the Frozen Four for the first time in 16 or 17 years. Probably the most important goal in recent UNH history. Ahhhh the good ol' days.

                    I moved away from the area so didn't get to see that game live. BU started 18-1 that year, if memory serves. As a BU fan, I think of that game as the beginning of the slide that saw us go from 1997 to 2009 with no FF's. The win over UNH that sent us to the FF in 2009, albeit a game UNH probably deserved to win, was an interesting reciprocation.

The Minnesota goalie won the MVP I believe and was put on the all tournament team. He was terrific. I believe Buzz Schneider was one of the UMTC players, and the coaches were Herb Brooks and John MacInnes.

                          Those great Tech teams were big, fast, and physical. The beauty of witnessing games like that back then is that you usually had to be there to be there.

                            I'm sure. I couldn't remember exactly so I went to the archives to look up the year and some had 73 some 74. It was a real long time ago but I still remember how up and down the game was and how intense for the whole time. I tried to find the box score but couldn't so maybe someone else who has better internet skills than I do can find it. Most places just give the brackets and the scores.

                              I'll keep this open for some time. It will take me a few months to gather the data I will need to plug teams into the formula. I am hoping to have the list ready to go by Tournament Time this year. If not, then I will probably release it over the summer. Also, it may very well be released over at College Hockey Weekly, assuming they are still operating at that time.

                              Anyway, here is the list I have so far. Please keep nominating games, as I would like to have somewhere around 100 or so to plug numbers in for (but I am not opposed to doing a whole lot more if it is reasonable).

                                Nobody nominated the 1985 HE Championship game? really?

                                Even if you forgot that PC has a program (which is entirely reasonable given the past decade) you're all bailing on a game that BC lost in double OT?
