Harrold Expects to be Fine
by Adam Wodon/Managing Editor
MILWAUKEE Senior defenseman Peter Harrold, a crucial component for Boston College not just because of his abilities, but because the rest of the defense is so young, expects to play in Saturday's championship game despite an injury.
"I will play," Harrold said emphatically.
BC coach Jerry York was less sure, though was probably exhibiting a bit of gamesmanship.
"Harrold has a bad ankle sprain. He tried to battle through it," said York. "Hopefully he'll play Saturday."
Harrold was trying to make a poke check in the first period, got tangled with a North Dakota player, and the pair fell to the ice. Harrold got his ankle twisted in the process.
"It's OK," Harrold said. "Pretty much (I played a regular shift). Not in the first period, because they couldn't get my ankle wrapped tight enough."
Harrold normally pairs with Tim Filangieri, but played moreso with Brian O'Hanley, getting spotted in the latter two periods.
