    Supporting a team that got byes the first few years of the 6 team field and didn't fare as well as expected, I agree. It's tough to slog through two weeks of practice with no game in the middle 6 months into the season.

    Re: This Week in Hockey East

    Coverage of the WHEA final in the Boston Globe. (The writer has the details of the tying goal wrong. Poulin shot from the right wing and the shot deflected off Friedman who had Menard tied up. Wakefield was behind those two, and may have tipped the shot through Lacasse's pads. ]

    Wakefield knuckles down, delivers title for Terriers
    By Diana C. Nearhos
    Globe Correspondent / March 5, 2012


    HYANNIS - Jenn Wakefield demonstrated why she wears the “C’’ on her sweater.

    The Boston University senior sent the Hockey East championship into overtime Sunday with a goal with 7.3 seconds left in regulation and then tallied the winner 2:15 into the second overtime, giving the ninth-ranked Terriers a 2-1 victory over Providence at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center.

    Providence’s Genevieve Lacasse had a shutout going through the first 59:52 and had not let up a goal in over 209 minutes of play when Wakefield got a bit of puck luck.

    “It was certainly an epic battle and we were up against as honored an opponent as we could possibly be up against,’’ said BU coach Brian Durocher. “They made us find one that sort of had eyes and got tipped in late in the game.’’

    Forward Marie-Philip Poulin slid a pass through traffic to Wakefield, who was waiting just outside the crease. The captain took a shot that deflected off defender Jennifer Friedman’s skate and between Lacasse’s pads.

    “It came down to Pou and she just shot it off my stick, I didn’t even have to do anything,’’ Wakefield said. “I was just parked in front of the net, trying not to let Lacasse see anything because she was stopping everything she could see.’’

    BU fired 15 shots in the first overtime period, 50 shots in the game, but Lacasse made some incredible saves to keep the game going.

    Finally, 2:15 into the second extra frame, Wakefield lit the lamp again.

    Forward Isabel Menard’s shot from the blue line missed and Friedman and Wakefield raced for the rebound. Wakefield collected the puck and shot it just inside the right post.

    “There was a bit of a struggle and I lifted a girl’s stick and spun around and shot it, just hoping for the best,’’ Wakefield said. “If it was going to be a good shot, Lacasse would have saved it. I was just trying to get it on the ice and maybe off her pad for a rebound.”

    Wakefield earned tournament MVP honors. In addition to her two goals Sunday, Wakefield had a hat trick and an assist in the quarterfinal win over New Hampshire and an assist in Saturday’s win over Boston College.

    Wakefield was on the ice for the final two shifts of regulation, determined to make something happen in what could have been her last game for the Terriers (23-13-1, 14-7-0).

    “Big players are out there at big times,’’ Durocher said. “That’s when you have to summon up your courage.’’

    Poulin (8 points in the tournament), Menard (6), and defenseman Kathryn Miller (5) joined Wakefield on the all-tournament team.

    Defenseman Christie Jensen (4 points), and Lacasse (127 saves) represented Providence (16-17-4, 11-8-2) on the all-tournament squad.

    Lacasse set a Hockey East record for saves in a tournament, passing Northeastern’s Florence Schelling, who made 101 last year.

    “It took a deflection with seven seconds left, that’s how great she is,’’ said Providence coach Bob Deraney. “Her performance speaks for itself. She’s the reason why we’re here and why that game went into double overtime.’’

    It was tape delayed on NESN, and I know they were replaying it at 2pm today, and will likely have an encore or two more, probably in the wee hours. Not sure if it helps you if you've already left the East. You might contact NESN.

    One of the professors at PC (the harmonica guy - I don't know his name) - was recording it from behind the net on a handheld camcorder, but I'm not sure how much fun that would be. Check with the Gauthiers if you want to explore that, but I'd hold out for the NESN. I will have it stuck in my DVR by the end of the hour, as I'm recording it now, If you have any idea how to get it from there to a DVD (by someone with a degree in Exercise Science, not Electrical Engineering) I'd be glad to get a copy to you (I do have a DVD recorder - separate unit from the DVR box)

    Well that was easy. It might be tough to watch right now, but NESN does a great job and it is certainly going to be quite the keepsake in the future.

    Providence played a very good, hungry game, and could well have been wearing the hats at the end but for two unfortunate bounces. My heart was in my throat for Lacasse as her play was beyond description, but don't tell any of my Wildcat peeps I said that or they will think my blue blood is fading (NOT)!

    I know some guy from PC was filming on Saturday, with a legit camera, and I assume he did again Sunday. I just remember him coming over and chewing me out saying "people" would be ****ed if I jumped up to celebrate a goal to which me and the NU fans around me were "slightly" annoyed.

    I TIVO'd the game and just had a chance to watch the replay of the tying goal in slow motion. The goal was definitely Poulin's off Friedman's right skate. Menard went for the tip but missed, and Wakefield waved at it but never touched it.

    I also saw that in the replay that was posted on the HockeyEast website. It was pretty clear that it went off her skate. That being the case, why was the goal not awarded to Poulin? Is there a rule that if it is off the other team, credit goes to the person closest to the goal? Just asking because with all the press on this goal, I would hate to have to repeat a story that I know is not true.

    Re: This Week in Hockey East

    If I was to guess I would say that Ms. Poulin could care less who got credit for the goal. She is an Elite athlete. She plays for the team on the front of her sweater not the back. Which, is probably one of the many contributing factors as to why she is an Elite athlete and an Olympic Gold Medalist !

    That wasn't my point at all. I just wanted to know how are goals assigned when it goes off the other teams equipment or body? Does it go to the person closest to the net or the person who shot the puck?

    Since I was cheering for PC, I don't care who gets credit for the goal.

    Re: This Week in Hockey East

    It goes to the person they "think" put it in. If it goes off an opposing player it would be the person who shot the puck. I realize Wakefield didn't shoot the puck, but they must have thought she touched it.

    True, but it was announced as Poulin's, and was credited as Poulin's on the stat sheets at the end of the period.

    Announcement of Vermont head coach Tim Bothwell's resignation.

    BURLINGTON, Vt. – University of Vermont head women's hockey coach Tim Bothwell stepped down on Wednesday after six years at the helm of the program.

    “It is with a great deal of professional disappointment that I announce my resignation today,” said Bothwell. “I was hired to move the UVM women's hockey program forward and we have moved forward in very significant ways since 2006. However, in the coaching profession at any level, wins and losses are the ultimate measure of success and, from that perspective, I accept full responsibility for the lack of success we have achieved in my six years as head coach. This past season has been a particular disappointment. We had a very strong freshmen class but many factors, including key injuries, meant fewer wins than anyone expected,” continued Bothwell.

    “I would like to thank UVM and Bob Corran for the opportunity to come here. He has been tremendously supportive of me personally and the women's hockey program. I also want to thank Grant Kimball, Mike Gilligan and Jeff Cooper for the countless hours they have worked to make the program better, our support staff who have been terrific to work with, and Kevin Sneddon and the men's hockey staff. I couldn't ask for a better, more cooperative group to work alongside. To everyone, I wish the results could have been different,” stated Bothwell.

    Bothwell, who came to UVM from the Canadian Olympic Team following their gold medal victory at the 2006 Olympics, compiled a record of 39-138-21 during his six year tenure. In 2011-12, Vermont posted an overall record of 7-17-9 and 4-13-4 in Hockey East.

    In 2009-10, under Bothwell, Vermont won 10 games, a Division I program record. UVM also won five Hockey East games that season, matching a school record.

    “I want to thank Tim for his unwavering support of and service to our student-athletes and athletic program,” said Dr. Robert Corran, Associate Vice President and Director of Athletics at Vermont. “He consistently approached his coaching role as that of an educator, using athletics to teach student-athletes' life lessons and to prepare them for success in the world. There are few coaches I have known who care more for their athletes than Tim. He will be greatly missed and I wish him much success as he moves forward from UVM,” continued Corran.

    Bothwell coached three Hockey East All-Rookie selections during his time at Vermont (Erin Barley-Maloney, 2008; Roxanne Douville, 2010; Amanda Pelkey 2012). Additionally, 25 student-athletes were named to the Hockey East Academic All-Academic team or Academic All-Star squad during his tenure.

    The search for a new head coach will begin immediately. Current coaches Grant Kimball and Mike Gilligan will oversee the program until a new head coach is named.
