Remembering Holy Cross' Big Upset

With Holy Cross playing at North Dakota tonight, we take a look at their last, historic, trip to Grand Forks

Holy Cross is playing North Dakota tonight. The Crusaders have been pretty good this year, racking up some wins against Atlantic Hockey competition, and actually sitting on the NCAA tournament bubble at 18th in the RPI. This weekend will be by far their toughest test of the season. This weekend is also significant because Holy Cross is making their first trip to Grand Forks since March of 2006, when they pulled off one of the biggest upsets in college hockey history.

That's a good enough excuse--Who am I kidding? Anything is a good enough excuse-- to post this. Still floating out there on the internet are the highlights of the Holy Cross student radio broadcast of the game. I will put this up there with any radio call in hockey history. Give it a listen. You will not spend a better eight minutes all day.

It's hard to listen to that, especially the call of the final goal, and not feel pretty good about college hockey. Actually, it's hard to listen to that and not feel pretty good about life.
