"I’ve had some remarkable players,"said York. "At Clarkson, NHL Hall of Famer Dave Taylor was a key player. At Bowling Green, Rob Blake was a top guy and a Hall of Famer for sure. Here, Brian Gionta really stands out. We’ve had some marquee players at all schools, but we’ve had more here at BC."

And the coach isn't showing signs of slowing down or trending toward retirement. "We get the chance to interact with impressive young men, so that helps to keep you enthusiastic," York said, when asked how he's remained at the top of the sport for so long. "I really enjoy what I'm doing."

The Warriors were slow out of the gate and BC made them pay. The Eagles jumped out to a lead in the first period that it would never relinquish. The shots in the first period — they read 11-1 — were a bit off (I remember at least three scoring chances for the Warriors) but regardless, shots were tilted in BC’s favor.

"He'd been kind of in and out during the course of the year," York said. "Even early in the season, we were winning games, but he wasn't as sharp. I think the competition has made him work harder in practice and just get better. Competition always drives people to get better and he's better now."
