A Little Bit of Luck
It all comes down to one game.
Boston University defeated the University of Vermont last night, 5-4, to advance to the National Championship game. The semifinal game was one of the best, if not the best college hockey game I've seen to date. It was a game that kept you on the edge of your seat for the entire night unable to predict what the outcome would be. It was the first time this season that I thought it might be possible for the Terriers to lose it all. But I should know better than to doubt this team. I've been saying it all season, but this team is a team that know how to get the job done. They find ways to win games they probably shouldn't win and continue to dazzle on the college hockey spotlight.
It has been a long season and only one game remains on this long journey. It is the most important game BU will play all season and I can not wait to document it. There is something special about how they play the game, and to be there win or lose is a privilege.
