BU goaltender John Curry was a walking record book after Monday night’s game. His .985 save percentage was the all-time best in Beanpot history and earned him the Eberly Award as the goaltender who plays both games of the tournament and posts the highest save percentage. Curry allowed just one goal on 65 shots.

He finishes his Beanpot career, 5-0, and walks away with a record .958 career save percentage. The previous record holder was BU goaltender Michel Larocque, who finished with a .950 career save percentage.

Up until Monday’s final, BU had never beaten BC in an overtime championship game. BC had twice beaten the Terriers (1957, 2004) in overtime in the title tilt.

Jack Parker has now won 20 Beanpots as a coach in addition to the three he won as a player.

BU now has won 28 Beanpots, more than all of the three other teams combined (27).

    Boom! Here come the Sioux! Ready or not!

    I hope the rest of the country saw the score of this game, because the sleeping giant has awoken and the Sioux are ready to light up the 2nd half of the season once again, only this time with a great 1st half of the season.

      Unfortunately I agree. UND does this every year about this time. It’s not out of the question for them to go undefeated the rest of the season. Regardless of what the polls say, this is the best team in the country. I think we’ll see a much better game (Bulldog Win) when these teams meet in the playoffs. Fortunately for me, I think UND just may have awoken the sleeping giant in Duluth as well. Very poor outing by the ‘Dogs last night.

    Quite the statement win by North Dakota. They looked the better team in every facet of the game. Dogs looked extremely rusty and had pretty much zero energy. In all fairness, UMD was missing their best two defensemen (Dylan Olsen and Justin Faulk) and had not played in almost a month. Regardless, I still think UND would have won this game even if UMD had Olsen and Faulk. Maybe not 5-0, but they still would have won. Cannot wait for playoff time! I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw both of these teams at the X in April.

      The Sioux were missing 4 of their top players also.

    Sweet looking facility. The arenas in the WCHA are far superior to those elsewhere around college hockey. I think this will only solidify the recruiting capabilities of Sandelin and the Bulldogs. I am of course still partial to the Ralph though. That place is beautiful. What are they going to do with all of those Sioux logos though? SIOUX YEAH YEAH!
