After arguably the craziest Cornell women’s hockey game, the No. 3 Red triumphed over No. 5 B.U., 8-7, with only 10 seconds left in a third overtime period. The culminating shot, made by junior defensemen Lauriane Rougeau, took the win and sent the Red back to the NCAA Women’s Frozen Four for the third time.

“I was very excited! … [And so] happy that we were going back to the Frozen Four,” Rougeau said.

The video of Rougeau scoring the goal, as of yesterday, received 22,381 views on YouTube and scored one of the top spots on ESPN Sports Center.
