College Hockey:
Huskies Hopping

The Terriers couldn’t handle a loose puck following a collision to goalie Kieran Millan’s left, and the puck drifted just out of reach of backchecking forward Higgins. Mike McLaughlin charged in, elevating the rebound over Millan to send the TD BankNorth Garden a-rattlin’.

BU head coach Jack Parker demanded an explanation, sustaining — most likely — that Higgins had played the puck after the penalty had been called, and therefore the goal shouldn’t have counted. Replays, however, showed that Higgins never really had possession, and was in fact in the process of committing the infraction at the time of the play anyhow.

1-1, end of the second.
