Terrier Nation to Celebrate Champs with Parade on Tuesday

A national championship wouldn't be complete without a parade, so reports that ...

Boston University will celebrate the men's ice hockey team's fifth NCAA championship with its own Duck Tour parade on Tuesday, April 14, starting in Kenmore Square at 12 p.m. and then rolling up Commonwealth Avenue. When the parade hits Marsh Plaza on campus, the party kicks off with cake and ice cream and will feature speeches from the players who will display their hard- earned NCAA championship trophy.
Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino will issue a proclamation making Tuesday "Terrier Day in the City of Boston." Bostonia will stream live video of tomorrow's parade at this link.

Dean of Students Kenn Elmore provides a special video announcement of the festivities:

And if you haven't tired of reading about the Terriers and their hard-earned championship:

• CHN's Adam Wodon provides a retrospective look at Jack Parker's 36 years behind the Terrier bench. CHN also provides a gallery of Josh Gibney photos.

The Daily Free Press marvels at the Terriers' post-season flair for the dramatic and how the team has accomplished everything it possibly coud.

• HockeyEastOnline issued its final weekly release. BU's newest 50-point scorer, Nick Bonino, was player-of-the-week, Vinny Saponari--who scored the critical third goal against Vermont and screened Miami's goalie on the championship-winning goal--was rookie-of-the-week and Kieran Millan was defensive-player-of-the-week.
