The Falcon icers enjoyed an off week as they prepare to welcome the Lakers this weekend. Let’s take a look at this edition of “This Week.”
Knocking Off the (Eventual) Champs
1/21/94 — Jeff Wells’ game winner with 7:01 left in regulation gives the Falcons a 5-4 victory over No. 3 Lake Superior at the Ice Arena. The Lakers build a 3-1 first-period advantage, but BG battles back with the game’s next three goals. The win gives the Brown and Orange a season series victory over the eventual NCAA champions.
Different Stick, Same Result
1/22/83 — Just two weeks after taking a two-game series from Michigan State for the first time in school history, BG completes a sweep of Northern Michigan, 7-6 in overtime, and uses the wins to share No. 1-team-in-the-nation honors with Minnesota. George Roll sends the game into overtime with six seconds left in regulation. Garry Galley appears to win the game for BG four minutes into overtime; however, the goal is disallowed for his using an illegal stick. Just 2:48 after serving his penalty, Galley scores again. Again the Wildcats ask the officials to check the curvature of the stick, but this time it passes inspection.
