New York, NY --
Boston University Terriers forward Ross Guadet didn’t know he’d be playing on Madison Square Garden ice until 1:45 on Saturday, so he might night have believed you if you told him he’d score the game winning goal that night. But it was indeed his tip in goal, in the overtime period, which won the game for the Terriers in the bi-annual Red Hot Hockey game against the Cornell Big Red at Madison Square Garden.

Guadet’s first goal of the season came at 2:48 into the overtime period. Defensemen Max Nicastro shot the puck from the point and Guadet was able to get his stick on the puck and redirect it past the right shoulder of Cornell goaltender Andy Iles.

“Definitely say this is the most exciting goal I’ve scored,” Guadet said after the game. “It was a great game to be a part of too. It was definitely one of the best moments of my athletic career”

Guadet had been a healthy scratch the previous game and was not sure if he’d be playing in the Saturday game.

“It was tough a week, it’s always tough being a healthy scratch, but my roommate went through it and all the guys on the team are great,” he said. “At the end of the day I just had to work harder. The coaching staff let me know I needed to work harder and that’s all I focused on doing this week.”

The Boston University Terriers were the first team to score on Garden ice when Adam Clendening scored at 11:07 during a five on three power play chance. The Cornell Big Red answered back with Locke Jillson scoring at the 11:06 mark of the third period. Jillson scored on a rebound to tie the game at one.

The Big Red looked to have taken the lead with four minutes left in the game when John Esposito shot the puck wide of the net, the puck ricocheted off the glass, went straight up in the air and eventually fell on Kieran Millan, the Terriers goaltender, and into the net. However the goal was waved off because the officials said they lost sight of the puck and blew the whistle.

Guadet was able to redirect the point shot in OT and Guadet was able to use his Tim Tebow celebration that he wanted to save for the right stage.

He was asked post game whether his game-winning goal was any sweeter because he was a game time decision. He was very humble with his answer.

“Any time you have the chance to help your team win it’s a great feeling,” Guadet responded. “Regardless if I was going to be in the lineup or not it’s great to be part of a win.”

The Islander Connection

During Saturday night’s Big Red Hockey game between the Boston University Terriers and the Cornell Big Red the New York Islanders had a few connections to Boston University.

Prospect Corey Trivino is a member of the Terriers and was on the starting roster. Trivino was on the ice for BU’s first goal at the 11:07 mark in the first period, though he did not register a point. Saturday night’s game was only the second time all season he was held with out a point. Trivino is currently tied for the team lead in goals (8), is second in assists (4) and points (12). In 11 games this season he has already tied his season total from last season, which was eight.

Also in the game was Long Island and prospect camp invite Ben Rosen. Rosen was quite physical during the game, making sure to finish his checks and was not afraid to get in opponents faces. Rosen was credited with an assist on Ross Guadet’s game winning goal.
