Former Terrier Captain and a winner in three Beanpot titles games Carl Corazzini, now playing for the Springfield Falcons, looks back his Beanpot experiences.

► Thirty-nine years ago tonight (1970), the Terriers staged a dramatic third-period comeback, rallying from a 4-2 deficit to beat BC, 5-4 and win its fifth Beanpot title. Wayne Gowing, BU’s top defensive forward, scored three final-period goal, while Mike Hyndman, a forward-turned-defenseman, was named tournament MVP. Tim Regan was in goal for BU. Gowing later became the longtime head coach of Wilfrid Laurier University and today is hockey convenor of the Ontario University Athletics conference.

I have some fond memories of the 1970 win despite not being at the game! I had strep throat and so as not to infect anyone did not attend practice on Friday and stayed at home in bed for the weekend missing a game as well as on Monday.

My sister and Mom went to the game and I listened to it on the radio. I was so psyched when we battled back to win, I crept downstairs after making sure my dad was asleep and proceeded to call a cab. It picked me up and I headed for the Dugout.

In the meantime my Mom was driving some of the guys back to the DO and Joe Meehan asked her how I was doing? She was saying how sick I was right about the time I was walking across Comm Ave. Joe said, I think that's him!

We went into the DO, Mom had a drink and I had one as well. Fond memories indeed of a long ago victorious Beanpot
