From the FreeP: “Stick-to-itiveness” aides Terriers in overcoming two-goal deficit at Red Hot Hockey

By Jake Seiner/DFP Staff
NEW YORK – During his postgame press conference, Boston University men’s hockey coach Jack Parker aimed to describe his team’s most positive feature during its 3-3 tie with No. 7/8 Cornell University. Try as he might to scour the English language for the perfect phrase, it simply didn’t exist.


Instead, he just made one up.

“I thought the best part about the game was our ‘stick-to-itiveness,’” Parker said.

The words “determination” or “resolve” might have worked as well, but suffice to say, as the Terriers attempted to dig themselves out of two separate two-goal deficits Saturday, their “stick-to-it-ness” was undoubtedly tested.
