How do you throw the puck into your own net with the Frozen Four on the line? Absolutely unbelievable.
UNH comes up with new and creative ways to fail miserably. It really is remarkable.
The worst part is that the miserable Wildcats somehow managed to outplay BU during the 3rd period. They had much better chances than BU did, including one JVR bid that Millan stopped with a stunning high glove save. And to make matters worse for the future Flyer, it was JVR's moronic penalty with under two minutes to play, along with Pollastrone's WTF?! moment, that put an end to BU's 12 year Frozen Four drought.
Also to blame: UNH's "power play," which went something like 1-for-60 during the last month of the season. They generated absolutely nothing during their one power play chance in the 3rd.
So, it's on to the least sexy Frozen Four ever:
(1) Boston University (HEA)
(3) University of Vermont (HEA)
(4) Bemidji State (CHA)
(4) Miami University (CCHA)
I'm thinking BU rolls through DC like British solders during the War of 1812, but Vermont did beat them 2-of-3 this year.
Tonight's good news comes from the women's basketball team, which dropped Georgetown 65-56 to advance to the WNIT Final Four. (I had no idea they called it the "Final Four," which sounds preposterous to me; I'm just going to call it the WNIT semifinal.)
BC will host South Florida on Wednesday night at 7 PM to battle for a spot in the title game.
