Tuesday Linkorama

We start off with a video no Terrier fan—or U.S. hockey fan—ever tires of watching. Thirty-one years ago tonight in Lake Placid, New York, Jim Craig stood on his head, Mike Eruzione found a small space under the Russian goalie’s arm and then we all held our breath for the longest ten minutes in sports history.

Brian Strait played 12+ minutes in his NHL debut, a 1-0 Pittsburgh loss to Washington on an Ovechkin goal.
Pittsburgh Tribune.

Kieran Millan earned Hockey East’s defensive player of the week award. The junior netminder, who now ranks fourth all-time at BU goaltending wins with 58, one behind John Curry for third place, has a 7-2-1 record with a 1.78 GAA and .948 save% in his past 10 conference games. Making the conference top performers lists for the week were Adam Clendening, Matt Nieto and Alex Chiasson, who ranks seventh in the nation among sophomores in points per game (1.07).

►Saturday night’s shutout win over Providence was the 850th of Jack Parker’s coaching career.

►Three members of the Terrier women’s team, Catherine Ward, Jenn Wakefield and Marie-Philip Poulin were among the nominees for the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, which recognizes the top player in NCAA Division I women's ice hockey. Wakefield and Ward also made Hockey East’s list of top performers for the past week

►BU will host the Hockey East tournament's semifinals and championship game on March 5-6.
