UNO's Scott Parse ended 2005 as one of the hottest players in college hockey. Thursday night against Alabama-Huntsville, he tallied 5 points. Then, last night, Parse and his linemates Bill Thomas and Brian Marshall teamed up to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat against Yale.
Down 2-1, Parse assisted on Marshall's game-tying goal with 33 seconds left. Then, with the Qwest Center still buzzing at the start of overtime, Parse made an incredible pass to a wide open Marshall streaking down the ice, who buried it for the game winner just 19 seconds into OT.
ConAgra tried to top UNO's last minute fireworks with an impressive choreographed display last night, but nothing could top those 2 goals.
Parse is now #2 in the nation in scoring with 36 points, and leads the nation with his 1.89 points per game average. UNO's first Hobey Baker candidate?
This week, UNO travels to Minnesota State-Mankato for a game Tuesday, then welcomes Notre Dame for a 2 game conference series next weekend. Every conference game is huge; only 6 points seperates 2nd place from 12th.
