BU Punches Ticket To NCAA Hockey Championship Game

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) - In an NCAA tournament filled with upstarts and upsets, hockey blue-blood Boston University is one victory from its fifth national championship.

Hobey Baker Award finalist Colin Wilson scored twice, including a tiebreaking goal with about 5½ minutes left, and the top-seeded Terriers beat Vermont 5-4 in a thrill-a-minute Frozen Four semifinal Thursday night.

In Saturday's championship game, Boston will play No. 4-seeded Miami (Ohio), which ended the surprising run of outsider Bemidji State by winning the first semifinal 4-1.

BU was the only No. 1 or No. 2 seed in the 16-team tourney to reach the Frozen Four - and the only past champion to get that far. Now the Terriers will try to claim their first NCAA hockey title since 1995.
