Double-Overtime Goal Sends UVM to Frozen Four


Mar 28, 2009

The University of Vermont Catamounts won the game and didn't even know it.

As a matter of fact, nobody knew it.

Thirteen minutes into double overtime, Dan Lawson fired a shot over the left shoulder of Air Force Academy's goalie Andrew Volkening. The puck hit off the end boards and play continued for another two minutes.

The officials then decided to review the play, and a long video replay provided them enough evidence to rule that the puck went through the net, thereby giving UVM the game-winning goal and a ticket to the Frozen Four.

UVM goalie Rob Madore played outstanding, stopping 46 of 48 shots that came his way.

The goal for Lawson was his second of the game. Josh Burrows also scored for the Catamounts, while Patrick Cullity, Justin Milo and Wahsontiio Stacey registered assists.

The Catamounts advance to the Frozen Four for the first time since 1996, when Tim Thomas manned the crease and Martin St. Louis led the offense.
Vermont will play the winner of Sunday's game between Boston University and the University of New Hampshire.
