With no Bruins action on NESN last night, #9 Boston University (Go Terriers) and the University of New Hampshire faced off in a great Hockey East matchup.
Dating back since the 1970s, a large fish is thrown onto the ice after the first Wildcats goal at the Whittemore Center. Unfortunately, this one did not go quite as planned. Check it out:
Tough night for the kid. Tried once, fail. Hit yourself in the face, check. Tried twice, fail. Drop fish on the floor, check. Eventually, he had to hop up and toss that bad boy over like it owed him some money. And of course, the Student Section misses all of this and goes crazy when they see the infamous fish on the ice. Go figure.
BU and the Wildcats went to OT, but finished in a 3-3 tie. Danny O’Regan scored a hat trick for the Terriers, who face off once again at Agganis Arena tonight.
