    3x3 expiring. It happens. And it's not like teams practiced 3x3.

    Correct. And then Drury continued that streak in the Frozen Four semifinal against Michigan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wVFSgfMAIw

    The super-regionals were over 2 days, not three. I also liked seeing four games, but I do prefer the 16 team tournament.

    It was technically 4x4, as the first set of matching penalties had expired 4 seconds earlier, but it was effectively 3x3.

    I do remember watching the SLU-BC game, hoping SLU could at least knock you guys out :-). I think it was close for a couple periods maybe, and you guys ended winning something like 5-2.

Sean - is that correct? And that April snowstorm happened the day after flying home from the FF in Milwaukee. It was, like, 65 degrees there, flew home on Sunday and Monday got 2' of snow.

    Regarding that BU-Denver game. Correct on the Drury fun-fact, Scarlet. Shawn Bates was indeed out of his mind in that game. Drury's OT game winner was during a 3 on 3. (The old fashioned. Lots of sinning.)

    edit - True story. The first tournament game I ever attended was BU/Denver in Worcester in 1997. There was about a month or so in between receiving the obvious acceptance letter from BU and the nail-biter from BC. I rooted for BU in that one (luckily the big envelope came from BC a few weeks later - delayed by a massive April 1st snowstorm in MA). I believe Drury won it in overtime and may have climbed the glass? It was a good game. Shawn Bates skated around like he had rockets attached to his skates.

    In 2000 only 12 teams made the tournament with the #1 seed in each region getting a bye into the final. SLU was the #1 seed, so hadn’t played the day before.

    According to the GoTerriers.com recap, BU had several good chances to win in overtime: a Carl Corazzini breakaway and Pat Aufiero hitting the crossbar (shade of 1991). Rick DiPietro, HE rookie of the year that season, stopped the initial shot by Carruthers, who beat the BU defender (Aufiero?) to the rebound for the GWG.

    Here's the game account with a photo of the GWG.

    Sean Pickett will know this for sure but what I remember about the SLU game was the broadcast went off air because of a Celtics game and then came BACK to the hockey game that was still going on once the Celtics game ended. Do I have that right?
    Like others have mentioned, I was at the game in Albany, but I did record it. It was shown on Fox Sports New England in New England and they had to leave the game during overtime because they were contractually obligated to show the Celtics game that afternoon. I don't recall if they came back to the game after the Celtics game ended. That was also the weekend that Jim Fitzgerald screwed Colgate out of winning their first round game vs Michigan when he disallowed their goal in overtime.
