Frozen Four final: Heading into OT

April, 11, 2009
WASHINGTON -- Has your heart started beating again? Mine either.

Boston University scored two goals in the last 59.5 seconds of the third period to erase a 3-1 deficit and send the 2009 Frozen Four title game against Miami University into overtime.

First, it was junior forward Zach Cohen with his 13th goal of the season to make it 3-2 at 19:00. Then, with 17.4 seconds left, sophomore forward Nick Bonino found the back of the net to tie it up, 3-3. Both goals were scored with goalie Kieran Millan pulled and an extra attacker on the ice.

Miami took a 2-1 lead at 12:31 when sophomore forward Tommy Wingels got behind BU sophomore defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk and was able to clean up a shot by sophomore forward Carter Camper to beat Millan. It was Wingels' 11th goal of the season and his third of the Frozen Four.

Miami increased its lead to 3-1 at 15:52 when freshman forward Trent Vogelhuber took a pass from senior forward Brian Kaufman just inside the BU zone, skated down the middle and beat Millan low to the glove side. It was Vogelhuber's second goal of the season.

Through 60 minutes, Miami has a 28-23 shot advantage and the RedHawks have a 29-22 faceoff advantage. BU is 0-for-2 on the power play and Miami is 0-for-7 with the man advantage.

Next goal wins the entire season.
