NCAA Championship Game: One For The Ages

(Thanks to the fine folks at Illegal Cruve for posting this FanPost about the NCAA final. -Ed.)

I never really followed College Hockey but as a result of the excitement that has been building throughout this year’s tournament I decided to take a more in-depth interest. Good thing for me that I did because from start to finish this has been some of the most exciting hockey I have ever seen. These kids play with tremendous heart.

I have a somewhat jaded outlook in that whenever I’m watching NHL hockey and a team is down by more than a couple of goals with a minute or so remaining, my expectation is that the game is over. Well I’ve learnt in College Hockey that this does not apply. During this tourney we’ve seen teams come back from 2 goal deficits with under a minute remaining in the 3rd period to tie the game, force OT and then win the game in extra time. (ironically while this did happen tonight I could be referencing a number of games that took place throughout the tournament).
