Boston College Hockey Recruit Austin Cangelosi Scores Ridiculous 'Chip And Flip' OT Winner

New, 3 comments

Boston College hockey recruit Austin Cangelosi scored a ridiculous overtime winner for the USHL's Youngstown Phantoms on Monday. The 5-foot-8, 165 pound forward from Estero, Florida lead a 3-on-3 break where he flipped the puck over Cedar Rapids' John Gilmour (committed to Providence), gathered the puck and proceeded to chip it past RoughRiders' goaltender Jake Hildebrand (Michigan State) for the OT winner.

But thanks to the wonders of technology, you don't need me to describe the goal. Here. See it for yourself.

Sick!

The goal gave the Phantoms a 2-0 lead in the series en route to a series sweep, Youngstown's first ever USHL playoff series win. Phantoms coach Anthony Noreen called Cangelosi's goal the "biggest goal in the history of the program" and last night's victory the "biggest win in the franchise's history." Cangelosi scored again last night in the Phantom's 6-2 series clinching victory.

Cangelosi surprised even himself with the move.

"I meant to do it, but it didn't register," said Cangelosi of the unusual goal. "I processed it, but it didn't process through my head. Somehow something came out of it.

"It was trickling down behind his back and I was just ecstatic," Cangelosi said of his reaction to the red light. "I popped down on one knee, I couldn't believe it."

Is it October yet?
