Championship game highlights from ESPN & more

It wasn't a dream. That incredible final minute, 2-goal rally really happened. So did Colby Cohen's overtime goal. After beating Miami goalie Reichard earlier in the game with a bullet off the crossbar, Cohen's OT slapper deflects off defenseman Roeder and flies over Reichard's left shoulder while the goalie, screened by Vinny Saponari and a defender, never sees it. When Jack Parker says "Hockey is a slippery game....played on ice," this is what he's talking about.

►Nick Bonino on his game-tying goal

“What else can you say about that pass from Matt Gilroy? It’s unbelievable. He saw me and I saw it in his eyes. He looked at me, faked the shot and dragged it around the guy so I knew it was coming. I was wide open and saw me and obviously I tried to put it on net. I was aiming anywhere, I just hit it as hard as I can and it squirted by the goalie.”

►Mike Eruzione:

"The old saying is that there is never a bad shot in overtime."
