Wonderful national exposure for our sport last night:

Nice to see some college hockey fans are working at ESPN and watching our games.

I find it funny most of the top 10 plays involve sports ESPN gives little to no coverage of. :D

I watched most of the BC v. BU game last night and saw that goal. When I was watching Top Plays on SC this morning I kept thinking to myself "how can they not have that goal on this list??" then they got to #1 ;)

A couple of weeks ago a save from the LSSU/Michigan State game was #3. I don't remember ever hearing about much college hockey on those countdowns before so this is pretty solid.

I saw #3 and i was wondering "well, then what kind of slick **** is going to be #1" and then it was answered.

Plays 4,3, and 2 all had a Wisconsin flavor to them. Unfortunately we were on the losing end in all 3.

I was sitting four rows off the ice just to the right of the goal and I did NOT enjoy that goal at all.

Well, some of us did.

That goal reminded me of one Orr got back in '72, I think, against the Golden Seals (yeah, white skates!) where he hit his own rebound out of the air between his hands with the shaft of the stick. Only difference was, Orr had been tripped on the first shot and did it from a horizontal position.

Nice win by the Terriers and great game from BC. Milner was surprising.
Thanks, ESPN.

They had a UNH women's hockey hilight from the Frozen Fenway game against Northeastern a couple of weeks ago as the #10 play which was pretty cool (the player had lost her stick behind the net and kicked the puck out to the slot where it was one time blasted past the goaltender... pretty cool to see)

What was that sport in the first several clips? It looked kinda like basketball, except they apparently allow traveling.

The bball plays are awesome, I mean, it is so rare to see a dunk or alley-oop in the NBA. :rolleyes:

UWM won that game by 10, though.

A) That link does not work anymore. Can anyone find the ESPN video of those two goals?

B) We should all E-Mail in to ESPN and thank them for showing college hockey, and maybe they will realize there are fans out there and show more highlights?

Wow, didn't anticipate them taking it off so soon. I saved that video fortunately, I'll YouTube it later today if I remember.

Oh yeah, just saying we either had goals scored on us or got dunked on in all 3.

Okay, I put it up, might take a few hours to process to higher quality, the quality that ESPN put up wasn't HD to being with. :rolleyes:
