Frozen Four: UVM-BU second period update

April, 9, 2009
WASHINGTON -- The second period belonged to Vermont. Correction, Vermont owned it.

UVM broke through with a goal at 3:50 by Wahsontiio Stacey to cut the lead to 2-1. Stacey was helped by Dean Strong, who collided with BU defenseman Colby Cohen. Strong occupied Cohen long enough to allow Stacey to get off a shot and possibly screen BU goalie Kieran Millan at the same time.

The Catamounts then tied it up at 2-2 on a power-play goal by Justin Milo at 9:04.

UVM took a 3-2 lead just 35 seconds later when Josh Burrows scored an unassisted goal that beat Millan low to the glove side. It was clearly a shot Millan would like back.

BU coach Jack Parker called timeout to settle his club down, but the damage (bad decisions and lackluster play) was clearly done.

The Terriers played with more passion for the rest of the period and did manage to tie it up late with a power-play goal by Vinny Saponari at 18:39.

For the period, UVM ended up with a 16-6 shot advantage.

So it's all tied up with 20 minutes (or maybe longer) left to determine which school will meet the Miami RedHawks on Saturday night for the national championship.

Game on.
