Boston College – NCAA Champions
A belated congratulations to Boston College for winning the NCAA Championship in Detroit on Saturday. The Eagles dominated the Wisconsin Badgers on route to a 5-0 victory. The win gives B.C. their second championship in three years (and the third championship in a row for a team from Boston. Boston University took home the honors last year).
Ryan Lambert over at Puck Daddy has a nice post about B.C. coach Jerry York possibly being the best college hockey coach ever.
It’s time to say it.
There is no better coach in the history of NCAA Division 1 college hockey than Boston College’s Jerry York. The numbers speak for themselves.
With last night’s 5-0 blowout over Wisconsin in the national title game, he secured his fourth national title, and third in the last 10 seasons. At 850 wins, he’s closing in on all-time coaching wins leader Ron Mason’s career mark of 924 and will almost certainly pass it in the next three seasons. He has 25 wins or more in 19 of his 38 seasons, and in all but one since 2004.
