NESN – With neither team able to capitalize down the stretch, the game required an extra period, and looked poised for a second overtime. Bill Arnold had other plans.
The sophomore took a feed from junior Steven Whitney, and ripped a wrist shot past BU goaltender Kieran Millan for the game-winner, handing Boston College its third straight Beanpot title.
“I’m in the clouds right now,” Arnold said of his title-clinching goal. “You dream about this as a kid and you never really expect it to happen, so this is unbelievable.”
Great game for hockey fans in Boston last night. The TD Garden was rocking for this uniquely Bostonian event that fits into the gap between football and baseball season. Awesome game played by both teams. Felt bad for Millan who stopped what seemed like 100 shots in OT only to allow the Game winner with 7 seconds left. Who knows, maybe these two teams will meet again in the frozen four!
