Frozen Four: BU edges Vermont, 5-4

April, 9, 2009
WASHINGTON -- The chants of "Hobey Baker" rained down on Boston University's Colin Wilson after the sophomore scored the game winner at 14:19 in the Terriers' 5-4 win over Vermont in the second national semifinal game at the Verizon Center. It was Wilson's second goal of the game and his 17th on the season.

The victory moved BU (34-6-4) into Saturday night's national championship game against Miami University (ESPNHD and ESPN360, 7 p.m. ET).

Vermont took a 4-3 lead at 9:40 when Drew MacKenzie scored on the power play -- the freshman's first career goal.

BU tied it up at 13:06 when Chris Higgins took a pass from Jason Lawrence and shot it toward UVM goalie Rob Madore and the puck then deflected off a Catamounts defender into the net. It was Higgins' 14th goal of the season.
