Rollercoaster on Ice

Terrier fans take a deep breath, and celebrate


Click on the slide show above to catch some of the fun and flavor of being in Washington (and the Verizon Center) for the Frozen Four.

At 7:40 p.m. Thursday night, Chris Jordan breathes a sigh of relief — Bemidji State University is out of commission.

“I didn’t want to have the Cinderella story in front of us,” says Jordan (COM’09).

After a nail-biting second half in the evening’s second game, which saw the BU Terriers give up two goals to Vermont, Jason Lawrence (MET’09) drops a lifesaving rebound into the net with minutes left to go. Belinda Smith (SED’09) is visibly upset.

“So, I’m still shaking a little bit after the second period,” she says. “We definitely needed that power play goal in the last few minutes. This is Hockey East we’re talking about — it’s far from over.”

The rest, according to BU hockey fans, is almost history. But not quite — there’s still Saturday.
