BC coach York stuck on 924 wins
Jerry York's coronation as college hockey's all-time winningest coach is on hold for at least three more weeks.
Boston College blew a 3-1 lead Friday night at Providence College, which forced overtime by tying the game at 3-3 with just 11 seconds remaining in regulation. A scoreless extra session ensued, so York remains stuck on 924 career wins, tied with Ron Mason for the college record.
"Providence played hard, they played physical, and they were difficult to play against," York said, according to The Boston Globe. "We take the point, we leave with some real good learning experiences for our club, too."
BC won't take the ice again until Dec. 29, when the Eagles will play Alabama-Huntsville in Minneapolis at the Mariucci Classic.
