Still basking in the glow of victory

Prior to yesterday’s parade and Marsh Plaza celebration, Coach Jack Parker guested on WEEI’s Dale & Hollly Program.

BU Today presents an video replay (now updated) of the celebration and USCHO's photographer extraordinaire, Melissa Wade, captured everything in this photo gallery.

Several people have asked if we could post Bernie Corbett’s calls on WWZN of the BU goals in the championship game. Here they are: Connolly's 1st period goal; Zach Cohen's goal at 19:01; Bonino's game-tying goal at 19:43; and Colby Cohen’s game-winner in overtime.

Ready for one more look at the Terriers' championship game heroics? Of course you are! First, the furious final minute of regulation with Bonino setting up Zach Cohen and then Gilroy setting up Bonino's game-tying one-timer.





And the overtime winner--Colby Cohen's deflected slapper flies over the shoulder of the screened Miami goalie.

Colin Wilson will be donning a Team USA sweater once again. Wilson who has represented his country in the World Junior Championships and World U18s, has been named to the preliminary USA roster for the World Championships. Nashville GM Dave Poile is the USA Ass’t GM, so perhaps he’s providing Wilson with a tryout against competition at the next level. Ex-Terrier and NHL star Joe Sacco is an assistant coach for Team USA.

So mad, I turned the game off at 3-1. Bowing to the sports gods for their dose of humble pie!
