Two quality tidbits:

This from an interview with Jim Montgomery. (Bitter much? I love it.)

CHN: Everyone remembers the 1993 national championship (Maine went 42-1-2 and the NCAA chose to allow Maine to keep its championship, after a review of a number of issues), but of course there was that one game that you guys lost to BU. How much do you think about that game compared to the high of just winning the championship in general?

Montgomery: All the time. We were up 6-2, pounding them, they weren't even in the game. The problem was, we wanted to win 12-2. It was a lesson that was very valuable for us to learn. And they scored three goals off shinpads and skates. Personally, it haunts us. But every season, all that matters is if you win that last game.

Prendergast scores (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhBiXe3k1C0) the OT GWG. He also had a late third period GWG (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wobkqpJb67Y) vs. Maine the previous season.

Mookie was thinking of using some "diving into the unknown" variant, but he starts too many threads.


Had to laugh at Monty with "guys tease....". Tease my ***. You ****ing cheated!! Should be lucky the spineless NCAA didn't asterisk you title dammit ;)

I wanted to include the whole last line in the thread title, but I thought that would become tedious....plus I would have used the wrong words "You ain't seen nothing...". So, good thing that I didn't.

All Prendergast did was know how to bury a puck, a rare quality it seems these days in general

- That second link remains the best example of how in the old days, the WHOLE crowd would really get into the games. After that goal, you couldn't tell which section was the student section, because, as the cameras show, every section was jumping up and down.
- The context helps explain why that was so memorable. BU lost 12 players (I believe 7 seniors and 5 to the NHL or Olympics) from the team that lost in the NCAA title game the year before. Names like McEachern, Amonte, Tkachuk, Lachance, Tomlinson, vonStefinelli, Ronan. So there was huge freshman class (who would go on to win the title as seniors), and we weren't sure what to expect. The team started off 4-0, but had the vaunted #1 Black Bears coming into WBA, so this was to be the true test. BU blew a 4-2 lead (maybe even 4-1), and then took a penalty in the last 2 minutes. It almost seemed a certainly that Maine would score, as they had all the momentum. Then Prendergast scored the biggest of his 19 goals as a freshman, and pandemonium...

As Bob Norton alludes to at the end of the other highlight, later in that '91-'92 season, BU was at Alfond, trailing 4-0. They came back to tie the game, which was a very big deal, since Maine was unstoppable at home (hence the 50-game unbeaten streak snapped in the 7-6 win).

Don't know if anyone has seen this series about 1980 US Olympic Hockey team. I stumbled upon it a few nights ago. Good stuff, especially from the Russian players.

Bad

Only play teams HE twice, lose a home game so more valuable on playoff race, etc.

BU is in on him for this fall, and I'm pretty sure they have a couple open scholarships.

Correct. BU gives up its home game.

Pretty crummy that BU needs to give up a home game for the Fenway game. Seems like it should be non-conference...
