Boston College forward Miles Wood was assessed a two-minute minor for boarding. First, the penalty was probably appropriate. That being said, what disgusts me was the acting job by Boston University senior forward Ahti Oksanen. His performance was worthy of an Academy Award. Oksanen miraculously recovered to play on the ensuing penalty.
This is the same guy that put on the acting job at the Ralph when BU and UND played on November 2, 2012., UND defenseman Andrew MacWilliam checked Oksanen with a shoulder-to-shoulder hit. We've seen this act before.
Obviously, the hit was late, but there was a late whistle, too. Oksanen actually shot the puck on the UND net after the whistle. Oksanen laid on the ice as if he was hurt badly and then somehow miraculously recovered on the bench, well enough to come back during the five-minute power play and score a goal for BU, his first of his career.I knew we had seen this act before.
