Cornell Defender Sends Her Team To The Frozen Four On Dazzling Goal In Triple Overtime

Lauriane Rougeau sent Boston University packing, and the season high home crowd of 2,143 Cornell fans into hysterics, when she slipped this one past the goalie to end what amounted to two full games of hockey played. Cornell won the wild game, that featured a three-goal-comeback by each team, 8-7.

Rougeau's goal came as she picked up the puck in her own defensive zone, then stepped past one defender as she crossed the blue line. One more defender got in her way, but with time ticking down in the overtime period, Rougeau made the play of Cornell's season when she beat Terriers goalie Kerrin Sperry between the legs after blowing past that second defender.

"I saw an opening and I went for it," Rougeau said. "I knew there wasn't a lot of time left on the clock, and even though they were three and I was one, I'm just going for it. I just past her, and it just happened. I was behind the net, I found out I scored, and I was happy."
