With all 5,022 fans – and trust me, there were 5,022 – on their feet, Bryan Rust skated up the ice while the numbers on the clock dwindled down from 10. Opposing goaltender Parker Milner had thwarted Notre Dame’s last 20 shots on goal, but Rust ripped one last attempt toward the Boston College net.
Although it first appeared Milner made his final save of the night to preserve the tie, 1.1 seconds of overtime froze on the clock as Rust’s shot trickled through the five-hole. Final score: No. 3 Boston College 2, No. 4 Notre Dame 3.
