Three take aim on championships

As the NHL, AHL and ECHL continue or are about to enter their league championship seres, three former Terriers remain in the running to have their names appear on trophies. Defenseman Joe DiPenta and the Anaheim Ducks took game one of the Stanley Cup Finals yesterday against Ottawa. Chris Bourque and the Hershey Bears begin the Calder Cup Finals this week against Hamilton. Bourque had a successful second pro season, registering 58 points.

Over in the ECHL, Justin Maiser and the Dayton Bombers, head into game four of the Kelly Cup finals against the Idaho Steelheads, trailing two games to one. En route the finals, Maiser’s team eliminated Mike Pandolfo’s Trenton Titans and the Florida Everblades whose roster includes Brad Zancanaro and Chris Dyment.

Maiser is best remember by Terrier fans for his game winning goal in the 2002 Beanpot championship game as a freshman, and his hattrick in the 2003 Hockey East semifinal against BC, including the game-tying goal late in the third period and the game-winner in double-overtime.
