Unsung Hero Award: Prior to Saturday's championship game, the Hockey Commissioners' Association named Brown University senior forward and North Andover, Mass., native Bobby Farnham the recipient of the sixth annual Derek Hines Unsung Hero Award.

The award was established by the HCA in honor of former Army player Derek Hines, who was a "consummate team player and team builder." Hines played at Army from 1999-2003 and was a four-year letter-winner as well as a co-captain his senior season. He was killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan in September 2006.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
