photo of 2009 Boston University TerriersCongratulations to the Boston University Mens Hockey team for winning the 2009 national championship last night in Washington, DC! The accompanying photo was taken by my friend Adam, who was at the game last night, shortly after they got a goal in overtime to beat the University of Miami of Ohio 4-3.

It was an outstanding game to close out an amazing season for the Terriers. BU was behind to a formidable opponent in the Miami RedHawks 3-1 when they scored 2 goals in the last minute of regulation to tie it up at 3 all and send it into overtime, when Colby Cohen’s goal broke the tie and sent BU to win its 5th national title. This capped off a season where they won every tournament they were in, including the famed Beanpot tournament, and Terrier Matt Gilroy won the Hobey Baker Award, the Heisman Trophy of college hockey.

As a longtime fan and season-ticket holder of the Terriers, it was an awesome night. Congrats to Coach Jack Parker, all the players and Terrier fans near and far on another exciting season, and here’s to a banner-raising party in the fall at Agganis Arena!
