How sweet it is.

Colby Cohen scored in overtime to give the Boston University Terriers their fifth national championship, winning 4-3.

In arguably one of the best college hockey games in recent memory, Miami took a 3-1 lead over Boston with a little more than four minutes left after Trent Vogelhuber scored.

But as they say, it's not over till the fat lady sings.

Zach Cohen and Nick Bonino each scored with less than a minute left to tie the game at three, sending it into overtime.

Chris Connolly put the biscuit in the basket for Boston, late in the first period for the games first goal.

Gary Steffes and Tommy Wingels scored for the RedHawks to give them the 3-1 lead, which stood until Boston tied it back up.
