Boston University Goalie Matt O'Connor Accidentally Scores Key Goal for Providence College in National Championship

Matt O'Connor must be the saddest man in the free world tonight. The Boston U goalie had caught a Providence shot that wouldn't have scored anyway had he let it go, but he wanted to catch it and get it back in play for his team (I'm assuming). In the process of bringing it down he lost track of it in his glove, it slipped in between his legs, and behind him in to the net for the...

Providence’s Gillies Makes Sprawling Save In Final Minute Vs. BU (GIF)

When did it become legal for Tim Thomas to go back to college? Oh, right. That’s just Providence College goaltender Jon Gillies doing his best imitation of Thomas’ sprawling save in the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs. After Providence tied the game on an ugly Boston University own goal and then took the lead shortly thereafter, the Terriers came about as close to burying a game-tying...
