Wild Finish to Hamden Win over Notre Dame FF

Thanks to Ned Burt here is the email account of the miracle finish for Hamden

I don’t know if you heard about our game last night with ND of Ffld but wish you had been there.

Eric Shugrue stood on his head stopping shot after shot.  Down 2-0 in third  period when CJ Carignan scored at 11:58 on assists from Jimmy Burt and Pat Lynch.

Mike Lee then has a freshman turnover at mid ice and Charlie Zuccarini scoops it up and scores a pretty goal against Varga.  3-1 deficit at the 12:59 mark.

17 seconds to go empty net Paul Amarone takes faceoff to the right of Shugrue.  Amarone pushed it forward Burt grabs it avoids 1 defenseman and scores 5 hole.  9.7 seconds left on clock.

Hamden coach Bill Verneris calls a TO and tells Carignan to slap shot the center ice face off to the right boards.  Burt wide right with Paul Amarone between he and Carrigan.  Carrigan pounds puck down towards right wall near top of the circle  Burt gets to it skates down almost to the goal line and fires a prayer at the net that goes off Shugrue’s skate and into the net with 4.3 ticks left.

Two goals in 5 seconds and we  win 1:11 in OT on a high slot wrist shot by Nicky Amarone set up by Pat Lynch hustle and great feed from down low.

Never seen anything like it in my life!  Oh do I wish you were there doing the Call!!!

Enjoy the snow!
