#29

It was a closer game than the final 5-2 score would indicate... with BU scoring 2 shorthanded goals(out of 3 in the game!?) in a 20 second span with 5 or 6 minutes left in the game. It was a pretty hard fought, back and forth, game up until that point... though with far too many penalties for my taste... it seemed that 90% of the game somebody was on power play. I actually feel (a little) bad for Northeastern's goalie Brad Thiessen, who after giving up two savable(IMHO) short handed goals to sink his team... got the "best goalie award" (based entirely on save percentage for both games)... talk about stone faced.

UPDATE: Here's the USCHO write up.
“That game is won on three shorthanded goals,” said BU head coach Jack Parker. “I’ve never seen that in my life in the Beanpot. Special teams was big for us, just in a different way than I thought it would be.”
