Miami (of Ohio, naturally) took a 3-1 lead with four minutes to go in the championship game. Thirty seconds later, Boston pulled their goalie, giving the RedHawks almost three and a half minutes to put the game away with an empty netter. But BU poked their own goal in with just under a minute left and then with 17 seconds to play, the Terriers tied it with a one-timer from the right circle. A two-goal lead, vanished in the final minute. Then it got worse.
If you were a Boston hockey fan watching the game, it was maybe the greatest moment of your life, but if you're a Miami fan ... I hear science is doing wonderful things with drugs these days. In the meantime, if you're looking for one person to heap all your scorn and ridicule on ... make it this guy. I haven't seen a premature celebration that unfortunate since the "diplomatic immunity" guy in Lethal Weapon 2. What were you thinking, sir?
