Tuesday Linkorama--UPDATED

Red Hot Hockey hero Ross Gaudet (photo) and goalie Kieran Millan, who has yielded just two goals in his last 182:48 minutes, were named to Hockey East’s weekly list of top performers.

BU is now 7-0-1 in its last eight games at Madison Square Garden, dating back to 1966. We neglected to mention in Sunday’s post that MSG was sold out (18,200) once again for Red Hot Hockey.

►► Video highlights of BU's 2-1 Red Hot Hockey win finally have been posted on YouTube.
Editor's note: some of the sequences in this video clip are out of order. The no-g0al call late in the third period appears in the video before Cornell's tying goal, which was scored at 11:06 of the third.

Q. What Terrier scored the most goals in a game at Madison Square Garden?
A. BU All-American Fred "The Bear" Bassi turned the red light on five times in a 13-6 drubbing of Princeton, on Dec,17, 1966. In the same game, Mickey Gray added four goals.

Looking ahead
2013 recruit Matt Grzelcyk assisted on the game-winning goal in the NTDP U18s’ 5-4 win against Colby College Saturday night. The Charlestown, Mass., native has a 1-7-8 scoring line, second best among NTDP defensemen.

Looking back--Familiarity breeds success
Before they were BU blueline partners on the Terriers' 2009 NCAA champs, Kevin Shattenkirk and Colby Cohen were teammates on the East Coast Selects, and NTDP U17s and 18s. Post-BU, they joined the Colorado Avs together, before trades sent them in different directions. Now the Blues top-scoring defenseman (2-12-14), Shattenkirk is still skating with familiar faces, according to a tweet from United State of Hockey’s Chris Peters. Two new members of the St. Louis defense—Ian Cole (Notre Dame) and Cade Fairchild (Minnesota) were Shatty’s teammates at the NTDP and on the U.S. team at the 2009 World Junior Championships. All three were on the ice for St.Louis 2-1 win against the Caps tonight, with Shattenkirk logging 24 minutes.
